Megan Meyer Finishes 2nd at FallNationals, Ends 2017 Season with Regional Championship
In only her sophomore year of competing in the Top Alcohol Dragster class, Megan Meyer, daughter of World Champion Tuner and Team Owner, Randy Meyer, claimed a Runner-Up finish at the NHRA AAA FallNationals in Dallas, as well as the Lucas Oil Series Central Region Points Championship.
Megan led the quickest field in history with a 5.23 E.T. at 278 mph while her teammate, Julie Nataas, sat in the 4thposition with a 5.26 E.T. at 273 mph. There were 27 cars competing for the 16-car field, and the bump spot was a 5.349 E.T., making it the quickest Top Alcohol Dragster field in NHRA. Megan went on to win the opening round of eliminations against Lee Callaway, while Julie unfortunately lost on a holeshot running a 5.27 E.T.
Megan moved onto second round with a bye run as Mike Edstrom was not able to make the call, which worked out in her favor as she had tire shake that caused her to abort the run early. However, the Randy Meyer Racing Team knew they had to step up their performance to defeat the defending World Champion, Joey Severance, in the semi-finals. Megan’s car did just that and laid down a 5.16 E.T., the quickest pass of the event and her second-quickest pass of her career.
