Double-Double to Finish the Season

DSR’s four-car Dodge Charger SRT Hellcat Funny Car program had been dominant all season long, preventing every other Funny Car team from finishing their day in the winner’s circle. At the final two events of the season, DSR’s Top Fuel dragsters joined in on the victory celebrations when Top Fuel’s winningest driver, Tony Schumacher, captured trophy No. 85 during the Mopar Express Lane NHRA SpringNationals presented by Pennzoil in Baytown, Texas alongside Funny Car teammate and winner Tommy Johnson Jr., marking DSR’s first double-up of the year.

Antron Brown, who was named Top Fuel Driver of the Decade by both AutoWeek and NHRA.com ahead of the 2020 season for his prowess behind the wheel throughout the 2010s, reunited with former crew chief Brian Corradi to start the season. The duo meticulously chipped away at their combination, and at the final race of the year, were able to enjoy the fruits of their labor when they raced to victory in Las Vegas. Brown shared the winner’s circle with Hagan, and celebrated double-up No. 67 for DSR.
