Schumacher Wins A Day After Kalitta Killed In Accident

A day after Funny Car driver Scott Kalitta was killed in a qualifying accident, five-time world champion Tony Schumacher raced to his first Top Fuel win in 12 tries at the Lucas Oil NHRA SuperNationals.
The event was overshadowed by the death of Kalitta. He died from
multiple injuries after his car went out of control in the fourth
round of qualifying Saturday.
Schumacher said with the death of Kalitta casting a pall, the
race was "extremely tough to get through from an emotional
standpoint."
Schumacher posted his 46th win, moving him within six of Joe
Amato for most Top Fuel wins ever.
