Since the 2000 U.S. Nationals, the U.S. Army colors have adorned the Top Fuel dragster of Tony “The Sarge” Schumacher. An eight-time world champion, Schumacher holds numerous NHRA records including the national elapsed-time record and national speed record for both the quarter-mile and 1,000-foot distance.
In 2015, the Army Racing family will again be comprised of Tony Schumacher and Antron Brown with his Matco Tools/U.S. Army dragster. Together, they are focused on being the best in the Top Fuel Class and proudly race in honor of the more than one million Army Soldiers around the world.
The Army’s major associate sponsorship of Antron Brown’s dragster continues to keep him on the Army Racing team. Antron originally rode the U.S. Army Suzuki in the Pro Stock Motorcycle Class from 2003 – 2007.
NHRA Youth & Education Services (Y.E.S.) program presented by the U.S. Army is motorsports' first and only full-time event dedicated to educational programming for high school and college-aged students.
