Meyer Team Finally Earns First U.S. Nationals Victory and Closes in on Championship Chase

Meyer Team

September 5, 2019 - Indianapolis, IN Powerhouse NHRA Top Alcohol Dragster team Randy Meyer Racing claimed their first win at the NHRA Chevrolet Performance U.S. Nationals in Indianapolis, leading a stacked sportsman field at the World’s Biggest Drag Race. The team has competed at this event for decades but never sealed the deal until now as Megan Meyer added her name to the history books at Lucas Oil Raceway.

“After the disappointing outing we had at the Brainerd race, where I red-light in the finals, I was beating myself up for disappointing the team,” said Megan. “We have some of the best dragsters in the nation and I had to let it go and come to Indy with a clear head and intentions of winning the race. Having my fiancé and family in the pits with me was comforting, and the crew did a great job of keeping me calm before each run and getting the car dialed in to run quick every run.”

Megan qualified second with a 5.18 ET at 279 mph, setting top speed of the event, pairing her up with Jasmine Salinas on Monday for first round of eliminations. The NGK Spark Plugs/Technician.Academy team ran a 5.26 ET at 271 mph to defeat Salinas. Megan faced Duane Shields next, and pulled ahead with a 5.23 ET at 272 mph for the win.
