Del Worsham became just the third driver
to win a championship in both NHRA pro
nitro classes, adding the 2015 Funny Car
crown to a Top Fuel title earned in 2011.
The 45-year-old Californian, who joins
Kenny Bernstein and Gary Scelzi in the
exclusive club, didn’t grab an event win
during the 18-round regular season. But
he cut loose in the Countdown to One
playoffs, winning four of six events in his
Kalitta Motorsports DHL Toyota Camry
flopper (LEFT), including a title-sealing
win in the season-ending Pomona Finals.
“I’ve been in the hospital, I’ve been
hurt, I’ve lost races I should’ve won...
I went years between wins at one point.
So for it all to come together like that,
it takes its toll on anybody,” said an
emotional Worsham after clinching the
title in his home state.
Sebastien Ogier wrapped up the 2015
World Rally Championship for Drivers with
his seventh win of the season on Rally
Australia (MAIN). A VW 1-2 on the event
also secured the Manufacturers’ title.
