NHRA World Finals At Pomona. Champions crowned on a Chamber of Commerce weekend.

It's always exciting when the World Finals come to Pomona and this year was no exception. The only class champion that wasn't crowned on Sunday was Greg Anderson in Pro Stock. He took the title by only needing to qualify so he was given the hardware, the jacket and most importantly, the check on Saturday. Top Fuel, Funny Car and Pro Stock Motorcycle were all decided on Sunday with top honors going to Larry Dixon, John Force and LE Tonglet respectively. Hope you enjoy the pictures below. It was a great race weekend!
