  • 'Brake Through': NHRA Star Tony Schumacher Smashes Winless Streak in Bristol, Honors U.S. Army Birthday


    Posted about 2 years ago by Andrew De Lara

    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.
