Langdon was one of 62 of the best NHRA sportsman drag racers who converged on Route 66 Raceway in Joliet, Illinois. They battled for a share of a $100,000 payout in a year long points battle between drivers in each of the eight Lucas Oil Sportsman categories. The divisional points leaders in each eliminator are joined by the defending event champs, who are invited to return as blockers.

Defending Allstars champions in each category, (Top Alcohol Dragster, Top Alcohol Funny Car, Competition, Super Stock, Stock, Super Comp, Super Gas and Super Street) are automatically placed in the filed as blocker, rounding out the eight car fields.

Langdon scored on a holeshot, netting a .009 to .045 edge at the green against Division 5’s Gary Stinnett and hung on for a 8.94 to 8.91 victory.

The Division 7 Super Comp racer uses K&N Engineering products. “My K&N Oil Filter (HP-3002) performed flawlessly in this race and all my races,” said Langdon. “It’s one less thing to worry about. I know my engine will run great with K&N Filters during every race.”

Langdon took home $4500 and a trophy, and said he gets to return next year to defend his title
