'Brake Through': NHRA Star Tony Schumacher Smashes Winless Streak in Bristol, Honors U.S. Army Birthday
There was no better time for Tony Schumacher to detonate his winless streak. Oakley’s NHRA racing star – on the 237th anniversary of the U.S. Army’s birth – claimed a resounding victory at the Thunder Valley Nationals at Bristol, effectively honoring one of his major sponsors with a triumph over Doug Kalitta in the Final. The result, coming as a result to a superior reaction to the green light at .023 of a second (compared to Kalitta’s .065), also served as a present of sorts for his family on Father’s Day.
The 2010 AMA Motocross Champion is shooting KTM into unprecedented territory. Oakley MX Star Ryan Dungey kicked back into top form and displayed his mastery of the Outdoors – sweeping the 450 Class Motos at Budds Creek for his third straight victory on the season. The resounding win elevates him further in the season standings, extending his lead to 54 points over Mike Alessi. The triumph also racks up his 17th overall – rendering Ryan No. 6 all-time in overall motocross victories.
