Pomona, California is about as far away from Dan Fletcher's Churchville, New York home as he cares to get. But, the K&N sponsored driver likes it there, at least long enough to polish off another drag race. Last month Fletcher put the shine on the 46th Annual Automobile Club of Southern California NHRA Finals, by taking the Competition Eliminator victory.
Fletcher nailed the tree and took the Competition Eliminator victory by only six feet over Vinny Barone.

Piloting Rick Braun's 2008 Chevy Cobalt, Fletcher nailed the tree with a 0.002 RT and managed to take the win by a mere six feet over Vinny Barone.

"Yes, Pomona has been quite good to me," admitted Fletcher. "I have won there often. I think I've won one class or another in five out of six events there. My overall season was a mixed bag though."

And by "mixed bag" Fletcher illustrates that he has positioned the bar exceptionally high for himself. He reached a total of nine finals in 2010 winning over 60 percent of those he entered. The win in the 46th Annual Automobile Club finals was Fletcher's fifth win for the season, and the 70th NHRA event victory in his storied career. With the win in Pomona Fletcher has now passed legendary nitro racer Kenny Bernstein, moving him up into the number seven spot on the all-time NHRA winner's list.

So what does a drag racing legend do with his time off from racing? "I've been more than a little busy plowing snow, and we just bought all new computers, and have struggled to get everything up and running."

Fletcher will return to Auto Club Raceway at Pomona in the spring of 2011 to kick off his next history making season. "For now, I'm just plowing snow and hoping that the firewood holds out," said Fletcher.
