Megan Meyer Scores First Victory at Home Track in Topeka
Megan Meyer and sister, Rachel Meyer, competed together in the Top Alcohol Dragster Class at Heartland Park Topeka July 27-31st with support from Meyer Truck Center Inc., Quality Structures Inc., and Up In Smoke BBQ Sauce. This was their second race this year racing side-by-side at their home track with the Randy Meyer Racing Team. Although Rachel claimed the runner-up finish at the NHRA National event, it was Megan who would take home the win at the Lucas Oil Regional race.
Rachel scored the number one qualifying spot with the quickest and fastest time of the three sessions, a 5.30 E.T. at 275 mph. Megan was not far behind in the third position with her 5.34 E.T. at 273 mph. With the two girls placed on opposite sides of the ladder, it was a perfect match for an all Meyer final round.
As the number one qualifier, Rachel faced Marty Thacker from Indiana for the opening round of eliminations. Unfortunately Rachel had a slow reaction time, as Marty shot off the starting line first and never trailed for the win with a 5.41 E.T. to Rachel’s 5.34 E.T. Megan was up against the sixth qualifier, David Brounkowski, who encountered tire smoke and Megan powered down the track for the win with a 5.37 E.T. at 273 mph.
Going into the second round, Megan had to take down the newcomer, Mike Edstrom, who had just received his Top Alcohol Dragster NHRA license the day before eliminations. Megan got off the starting line first, but Mike got ahead of her down the track. Megan powered through to cross the finish line first, by a mere .003 seconds, approximately 14 inches.
The rising star of the Top Alcohol Dragster Class, Megan Meyer, extended her Central Region points lead after earning a runner-up finish at Tulsa Raceway Park. This is Megan’s third final round appearance for the 2017 season and her first runner-up conclusion.
Megan powered her A/Fuel Dragster to a 5.36 E.T. at 270 mph to claim the second qualifying position, while her teammate Shayne Lawson wasn’t able to qualify with his 5.54 pass. The opening round of eliminations saw Megan against Christine Chambless, the only other female driver in the class for the event. Megan defeated Christine with a slower 5.44 E.T. at only 256 mph, but still had lane choice over Spencer Massey in the second round.
