DO-OR-DIE TIME FOR MANY COUNTDOWN DRIVERS AT BIG O TIRES NHRA NATIONALS:
Top Fuel pilot Del Worsham knows that it is do-or-die time. After
leading the points for nearly the entire regular season and entering the
Full Throttle Countdown to the Championship with a 30-point lead,
Worsham could only watch his points lead diminish as drivers below him
in the standings raced their way to consecutive final-round appearances.
A runner-up finish in Reading, Pennsylvania, gave the Al-Anabi Racing
driver a confidence boost he needed, and now, as the NHRA Full Throttle
Drag Racing Series makes its penultimate stop of the season at the Big O
Tires NHRA Nationals at The Strip at Las Vegas Motor Speedway, Worsham,
currently fourth, knows that this may be his last chance to make a push
toward his first world championship.
