Consistency Ranks Ashley Above Former Top Fuel Champions

When he departed Bristol (Tenn.) Dragway on Saturday afternoon with the New England Nationals Wally in hand, Justin Ashley was firm in the belief it was just another victory. But on Saturday, Ashley added a third Wally to his rapidly growing collection. “Four wins in only eight races is certainly an accomplishment and a great feeling,” Ashley said. “The depth of the field is so tough, every round is difficult, so it’s only natural to have those ebbs and flows — to have the wins and the first-round losses,” Ashley said. “Truthfully, the reaction time is irrelevant if we don’t have the car that we have,” Ashley said. With four victories, the dragster driver has inherited the Top Fuel points lead from Torrence, who is now 64 points behind Ashley. “This is not a changing of the guard,” Ashley said with a chuckle.
