(AP) NHRA Top Fuel points leader Shawn Langdon made it a memorable double-win weekend, racing to the Chevrolet Performance U.S. Nationals victory Monday at Lucas Oil Raceway.


A day after winning a special $100,000 eight-car Top Fuel shootout, Langdon earned another $100,000 prize after powering his 8,000-horsepower dragster to a run of 3.818 seconds at 320.97 mph to beat Steve Torrence in the championship round for the second straight day.


Langdon, who earned a class-best fifth victory of the season and sixth of his career, also beat Pat Dakin, Terry McMillen and Doug Kalitta to reach the final round.


Robert Hight (Funny Car), Mike Edwards (Pro Stock) and John Hall (Pro Stock Motorcycle) also were winners.
