Billy Torrence wins second Top Fuel victory of playoffs

ENNIS, Texas -- Billy Torrence won the AAA Texas NHRA FallNationals at his home track Sunday for his second Top Fuel victory of the playoffs.

Torrence had a 3.775-second run at 319.67 mph to beat first-time finalist Jordan Vandergriff at Texas Motorplex. Torrence has four victories this year and five overall.

"It's home turf and we love to race here," Torrence said. "We've raced here our whole career and we have a lot of fans here. There's no better place to race than Dallas, Texas, and we did have the best car today. It has been very humbling, and we've been very blessed and fortunate to have the success we've had.
