You couldn?t have asked for a better ending to a great weekend, as ?The Sarge? wins in his hometown at the Lucas Oil Route 66 Nationals. The pilot of the U.S. Army Top Fuel dragster beat the reigning POWERADE champion, Larry Dixon with a pass of 4.530-seconds to Dixon?s 4.615-seconds at 321.50 mph. ?I can?t put into words right now what I am feeling,? said Schumacher. ?To win here in hometown is awesome.? With this win for the U.S. Army team, it washes away past demons for this team at this historic track. The last four races, ?The Sarge? has gone out in the first round here in both the spring and fall races. ?It feels like I finally got this monkey off my back here,? said the 1999 Top Fuel Champion. ?With this being my hometown and home-track, I?ve wanted to do good here every-time out, but for some reason, it just didn?t happen for us.? With this win, Schumacher moves from 10th in the points standings, to eighth, seven points behind the seventh place Doug Herbert. ?The team worked very hard and very long to get things the way I wanted them,? said Alan Johnson. ?We didn?t have much time between this race and Topeka, and for this team to come together like this, is incredible. ?It took 10 other guys on this team to do this, this U.S. Army Team is truly an Army of One,? said Schumacher.
