Schumacher adds to racing legacy, wins record-tying ninth U.S. Nationals



“To finally get the Indy win and stand in the U.S. Nationals winner’s circle is something that I can look back on year’s from now,” Hines said.

As special as winning the U.S. Nationals is in the first place, there is an added benefit with Hines’ home and the Vance and Hines shop both being less than five minute drives away from Lucas Oil Raceway.

“It’s adds a ton because we haven’t had the success here before,” Hines said. “To finally get it with all of our co-workers out here in the stands and all of my family here, to get this with my sister, nieces, my mom, my dad and with my dad pushing me around the pits this weekend is a totally surreal feeling.”

During the early rounds, No. 9 seed Johnny Gray spoiled both of the Force’s U.S. Nationals chances in Funny Car action. Gray beat John Force in the first round and dropped No. 1 qualifier Courtney Force in second round before falling to Wilkerson in the semifinals.

Six-time U.S. Nationals and 2011 Pro Stock winner Greg Anderson was slotted third but fell to Larry Morgan in the first round.

The defending back-to-back U.S. Nationals Pro Stock Motorcycle champion LE Tonglet lost to Hector Arana Jr. in the second round.
