Billy Torrence might have broken Jordan Vandergriff’s heart for a few minutes Sunday with his Top Fuel victory in the NHRA AAA Texas FallNationals at Texas Motorplex.
But he might be breaking the spirit – or at least maybe breaking the habits – of fulltime racers who always struggle through 18 regular-season races and sometimes don’t make the Countdown to the Championship.

The weekend started out perfectly for the race debut of Charles "Tommy" Youmans' beautiful new 1970 GTO at No Mercy 10 in the Pro 275 class. The car performed well in front of fans and photographers who immediately fell in love with the bright orange Judge. The good times ended abruptly, however, hard against the right-side wall of South Georgia Motorsports Park.
Youmans stepped up from 20th to sixth in the third-and-final qualifying session with a 4.17 at 181.91 mph on the SGMP eighth mile, then made it past Nigel Alexander in the opening round of racing. The McIntyre, GA-based driver faced a bye run in round two, which turned out to be fortuitous.
