Coughlin, Wilkerson, Schumacher Favored to Win NHRA ACDelco Las Vegas Nationals

October 29, 2008 by  

Pro Stock ace Jeg Coughlin, Funny Car dynamo Tim Wilkerson and soon-to-be-champ-again Tony Schumacher should win Sunday’s NHRA ACDelco Las Vegas Nationals at The Strip at Las Vegas Motor Speedway.

Says who?  Says Micah Roberts, veteran oddsmaker for Station Casinos in Las Vegas.  Roberts has selected Schumacher at 5-to-7 to top the Top Fuel Dragster field.  Schumacher needs only to qualify for Sunday’s 16-car elimination ladder to earn enough points to clinch the 2008 NHRA POWERade Drag Racing Series championship.

Coughlin’s JEGS-sponsored ride is set at 7-to-5 in the Pro Stock ranks and the formidable Wilkerson is favored at 3-to-1 to make yet another trip to the Funny Car victory lane festivities.

Hometown hero Rod Fuller might be a smart bargain at the ticket window: he’s won at Las Vegas before but only is rated at 20-to-1 for Sunday.
