Since the 2000 U.S. Nationals, the U.S. Army colors have adorned the Top Fuel dragster of Tony “The Sarge” Schumacher. During the fifteen year partnership, Don Schumacher Racing and the U.S. Army have shown dominance and resilience in becoming one of the strongest forces in NHRA Top Fuel Drag Racing.
In 2016, the U.S. Army Racing Team of drivers will again be comprised of Tony Schumacher and Antron Brown. The two teams have prepared for the seasons challenges and continue to proudly race in honor of the more than one million Army Soldiers around the world.
Through the U.S. Army's major associate sponsorship of driver Antron Brown, the Army Racing team secured the 2015 Top Fuel World Championship and second of Antron's career. Originally sponsored by the U.S. Army in the motorcycle class, Antron's persistence and perseverance has quickly put him among the best in the Top Fuel category.
