Thanks to a stellar late-season push, Christiansburg’s Matt Hagan has put himself in contention for a third NHRA Funny Car title this weekend.

He still has plenty of work to do, however.

Hagan enters this weekend’s final event at Auto Club Raceway in Pomona, California, third in the Funny Car standings. He trails leader Robert Hight by 56 points and, depending on qualifying results, would need to advance at least two rounds further than Hight to win the title.
