JOLIET, Ill. -- Tony Schumacher's engine exploded in a fireball Sunday as he crossed the finish line to win the Route 66 NHRA Nationals.

Schumacher, the seven-time season champion from nearby Long Grove, raced to his third victory of the season and the 72nd of his career. He finished in 3.930 seconds at 269.29 mph to hold off Clay Millican and regain the season points lead.

Matt Hagan topped the Funny Car field, Jeg Coughlin won in Pro Stock, and Michael Ray was the Pro Stock Motorcycle winner.
