A ‘Full House’ at Indy

DSR welcomed back two NHRA legends and fan-favorites when Cory McClenathan and Tony Schumacher temporarily re-joined the drag racing powerhouse in July. At two of the four Indianapolis events, DSR campaigned 10 entries, fielding four Top Fuelers, four Funny Car teams, and two Factory Stock Showdown Dodge Drag Paks. McClenathan’s stint back behind the wheel of a Top Fuel dragster allowed him to reset his career-bests (3.731 seconds at 330.47 mph), and Schumacher’s return to the seat spurred a deal with DSR partners Okuma and Sandvik Coromant, which enabled him to compete at the final six events of the 2020 season and finish the year ranked in the Top 10.
