Richie Crampton has won his third NHRA national event in Las Vegas.

Crampton posted a performance of 3.902 at 301.33 mph in his Lucas Oil dragster to better Larry Dixon’s 4.466 at 201.73 in his C&J Energy dragster. It was Crampton’s first victory at The Strip.

“It’s huge,” Crampton said. “Obviously, we want to win right out of the gate, but that hasn’t always been the case for Morgan Lucas Racing. To win at the fifth event and technically go to the final at the [NHRA] Four-Wide [Nationals], we’re gathering some good momentum, and it’s a huge boost for our entire team. We got a great hot-track race car.”

Crampton, the 2014 rookie of the year, has never lost a final round and moves to fifth in the points standings. He qualified fifth and raced past Troy Buff, Steve Torrence, and No. 1 qualifier J.R. Todd, before beating Dixon in the final.
