The NHRDA Texas Diesel Nationals opener in April gave us just a brief preview of the bad assery in store for the rest of the season. Now at the halfway mark, points leaders from the first four events face brutal competition for the coveted National Championship and qualification for the World Finals. With four more to go, here's a breakdown of the standings:
Top Diesel - Wade Moody - 170 points
Wade Moody continues to kill it with a 90 point lead over his closest competitor.
Pro Stock - Dallas Theobald - 190 points
Dallas Theobald won Arizona and Oklahoma to take the points lead in Pro Stock.
Pro Street - Matt Kubik - 160 points
Matt ran an impressive 153.70 mph at Diesels on the Mountain to take the win.
Super Street - Chris Buhidar - 240 points
Chris is enjoying a very comfortable 150 point lead, and certainly looks ready to keep his 2015 National Championship status intact in 2016.
10.90 Class - Ray Ross - 240 points
Ross was another big winner at Diesels on the Mountain, and is ready for his shot at the 2016 National Champion seat.
Super Diesel - Ross Dunagan - 210 points
A slim 10 point lead makes the next four races crucial for Dunagan.
Sportsman Class - Scott McKinstry - 320 points
McKinstry promised to win from the beginning and his comfortable points lead shows him doing just that.
Hot Rod Semi Truck - Jim Disher - 260 points
In true Disher burnout style, Jim goes into the second half of the season with a very comfortable points lead.
Big Rig Bracket - Rick Fenwick and Carnie Disher - tied at 180 points
16 year old Charnie Disher has proven herself a worthy opponent to Fenwick this year. The next four races will tell which one comes out on top!
