    Cory Reed crash update:
    Yesterday, Autoweek.com reported that Cory Reed suffered a both a compound fracture of both the tibia and fibula of his left leg just above the ankle and a broken shoulder during his top end crash at the DeWalt Carolina Nationals. Surgery to repair his broken leg was scheduled for Monday, September 20.
    He is currently entered in the NHRA Texas FallNationals October 7-10 but you may want to confirm he'll be racing if you plan on making him your Pro Stock Motorcycle class pick for that event.

      Congratulations to 'Back in Time' (FABO) for winning the 'Top Qualifier' title for the NHRA Midwest Nationals with an outstanding total of 23.5 bonus points. He picked the #1 qualifiers in both Funny Car and Pro Stock, and the #2 qualifier in Top Fuel.
      The runner-up qualifier spot is shared by 'memike' (FABO), 'shittyslant6' (FABO) and 'stroked340' (FABO), all with 23.0 bonus points.
      The top FBBO picker is 'Outlawd' with 21.0 bonus points.
      Great picks all!

      We have 14 players this week and 11 different driver combos made up of:
      * 3 different Top Fuel drivers with no head-to-head matchup in the opening round of eliminations. The earliest possibility of a head-to-head matchup is in the semi-final round of eliminations if both drivers survive the first two rounds.
      * 6 different Funny Car drivers with one head-to-head matchup in the opening round of eliminations between team mates #7 qualifier Robert Hight (1 pick) and #10 qualifier John Force (4 picks). There is a possibility of two head-to-head matchups in the 2nd round of eliminations if all drivers survive Round 1.
      * 3 different Pro Stock drivers. The earliest possibility of a head-to-head matchup would be the semi-final round of eliminations if the drivers survive that long.

      Top Fuel is an all 3-second field for the first time the year, and the 16 Pro Stock qualifiers are separated by only only 0.1 second elapsed qualifying times.

      Good luck all!

                      Congratulations to 'Back in Time' (FABO) for winning the 'Top Qualifier' title for the NHRA Midwest Nationals with an outstanding total of 30.0 bonus points. He picked the #1 qualifiers in both Top Fuel Car and Pro Stock, and the #3 qualifiers in both Funny Car and Pro Stock Motorcycle. This is the second event in a row that he won the 'Top Qualifier' title.
                      The runner-up qualifier spot is shared by 'memike' (FABO), 'Nick2317' (FBBO), 'ocdart' (FABO) and 'stroked340' (FABO), all with 29.5 bonus points.
                      Great picks all!

                      We have 14 players this week and 11 different driver combos made up of:
                      * 3 different Top Fuel drivers with no head-to-head matchup in the opening round of eliminations. The earliest possibility of a head-to-head matchup is in the semi-final round of eliminations if both drivers survive the first two rounds.
                      * 6 different Funny Car drivers with no head-to-head matchups in the opening round of eliminations. There is a possibility of two head-to-head matchups in the 2nd round of eliminations if all drivers survive Round 1.
                      * 3 different Pro Stock drivers. The earliest possibility of a head-to-head matchup would be the semi-final round of eliminations if the drivers survive that long.
                      * 5 different Pro Stock Motorcycle drivers with no head-to head matchups in the opening round of eliminations. There is a possibility of two head-to-head matchups in the 2nd round of eliminations if all drivers survive Round 1.

                      Good luck all!

                        Congratulations to 'memike' (FABO), 'Nick2317' (FBBO), 'ocdart' (FABO) and 'stroked340' (FABO) for sharing the "Top Picker Eliminator" crown for the 2021 Texas NHRA FallNationals, the 17th event of the 2021 season and fourth event of the playoffs, with outstanding totals of 184.5 points each. They each picked the class winners in both Pro Stock and Pro Stock Motorcycle, and their Top Fuel and Funny Car picks each made it to the final round of eliminations before losing. Each of them was also helped with ET bonus points in Pro Stock and Speed bonus points in both Funny Car and Pro Stock Motorcycle.
                        'shittyslant6' (FABO) was the race runner-up with 159.0 points.

                        No time to rest because the 5th event of the playoffs, and 18th race of the 2021 season, the NHRA Thunder Valley Nationals is scheduled for October 15-17, at Bristol Dragway in Bristol, TN.
                        As always, your picks need to be posted before Pro Qualifying starts. The first of 3 Pro Qualifying sessions is scheduled to begin at 5:00PM EDT (2:00PM PDT) on Friday, October 15. There will also be two additional rounds of Pro Qualifying on Saturday, October 16.

                        NHRA.com shows there are currently 18 Top Fuel, 15 Funny Car and 17 Pro Stock Motorcycle entries for this race event but that is always subject to change.

                        Pro Stock will not compete at this event.

                        Post your picks and good luck!

                        Here's your Tuesday before the event reminder for the upcoming NHRA Thunder Valley Nationals in Bristol, TN.
                        NHRA.com currently shows there will be
                        18 Top Fuel
                        15 Funny Car
                        18 Pro Stock Motorcycle

                        Make sure to check to verify your driver picks are scheduled to compete and post your picks before Pro Qualifying starts on Friday, September 10 at 4:45pm EDT (1:45pm PDT).
                        There will also be two additional Pro Qualifying sessions on Saturday.
                        I tried to find more information on NHRA's COVID-19 protocol but no luck. Matt Hagan is currently shown as the driver of his Funny Car per the current NHRA.com entry list.

                        The television schedule for the Thunder Valley Nationals is:
                        * Qualifying: Friday, October 15 at 2pm EDT (11am PDT) on Fox Sports 1 [re-air on Friday at midnight EDT and Sunday at 9pm EDT on Fox Sports 2]
                        * Eliminations, Sunday, October 17: 2-5pm EDT (11am-2pm PDT) on Fox Sports 1. There are multiple re-airs scheduled - check NHRA.com.


                        The current weather forecast is for 79F and mostly sunny for Friday qualifying, 66F high temp and a 55% chance of rain showers sunny for Saturday qualifying, and 55F-65F high temp and sunny for Sunday eliminations.
