Of Tony Schumacher’s 83 career Top Fuel wins in his 10,000-horsepower U.S. Army dragster, the eight-time NHRA Mello Yello Drag Racing Series world champion has no problem recalling the five that took place at state-of-the-art Route 66 Raceway.
The Chicago native’s hometown track has served as the backdrop for five memorable moments in the standout’s successful career, tying him for the most in NHRA history at the fan favorite facility. Schumacher, the winningest driver in Top Fuel history, hopes a sixth win – and first in the 2018 season – is right around the corner at the 21st annual JEGS Route 66 NHRA Nationals, which takes place May 31-June 3 at Route 66 Raceway.
