Another Drought Broken

No, not the one in Denver (after our 2 feet of snow we got last weekend)! I'm talking about Morgan Lucas' win at Atlanta.

When a driver of this caliber and funding wins for the first time, I go back and double check the stats to see for sure if this is their first win or not. It's hard to believe and I'm sure harder for the team and driver.

It happened last year when Tony Bartone won in Seattle and Greg Statnfield won in Dallas for the first time in the pro ranks. Both had won previously in the sportsman ranks...although Greg had won in the defunct PST category.

Now, Morgan Lucas has broken his win-less streak!

Previously, Morgan's stats were:
54-42 first round
26-28 second round
5-21 third round
0-5 final round
85-96 overall...96 events qualifying until a win!

Who we pullin' for now to break that win-less streak?
Bob Vandergriff 189 qualified events without a win.
Here are some other top fuel drivers that are still waiting for their first NHRA win and how many qualified events since...
Rhonda Hartman-Smith 116, John Smith 92, Scott Weis 90, Clay Millican 82.
