It may be Funny Car, but fourth NHRA title is serious business for Robert Hight

It’s been a few years, but Robert Hight is back on top.

The California native won his third NHRA Funny Car championship in 2019, but had to wait a few years before he could compete for the title once again.

COVID-19 prevented Hight from competing in all but two races in 2020. He went on to win just two races on his return to the sport in 2021 and finished a disappointing eighth in the standings.

But now, Hight appears to be racing toward his fourth title. He already has six wins this season and a 250-point lead in the Funny Car standings.
