Christopher Dodd wins his first Super Comp World title. He also won the Division Four Super Comp championship.


Dodd got a late start to the season, due to issues and then of course the pandemic shut down all racing. He finally got started in June at the Houston Lucas Oil Drag Racing Series event. He lost in the fourth round. He and his father then travelled to Lucas Oil Raceway at Indianapolis for the Division Three race that was a part of the Dodge NHRA Indy Nationals presented by Pennzoil. He advanced to the final where he would met up with hometown hero Devin Isenhower. Dodd had the starting line advantage and got the win by about five feet.
