Sweeping the famed Western Swing is no longer possible for reigning Top Fuel world champion Antron Brown but there is plenty that remains on the line for the two-time world champion at this weekend’s 29th annual Toyota NHRA Sonoma Nationals at Sonoma Raceway.
Brown is the defending event winner of the second of three races on the Western Swing and a win this year would tie Doug Kalitta for the most in Top Fuel history at the track with five. There is also the matter of maintaining the points lead in the star-studded class heading into the Mello Yello Countdown to the Championship, which is just four races away.
