Bob Vandergriff described his victory a year ago at Royal Purple Raceway as having a touch of Hollywood. It`s not often that sequels are held in higher regard than the original in the movie industry, but the Top Fuel standout hopes the 27th annual O`Reilly Auto Parts NHRA SpringNationals presented by Super Start Batteries, April 25-27, at Royal Purple Raceway provides the rare exception.
After winning a year ago, Vandergriff jogged back up his lane to greet his teammates, a customary move whenever the driver of the 8,000-horsepower C&J Energy Services dragster wins a race. But with the event being the closest race for Vandergriff`s sponsor, the victory became that much more special.
