Matt Hagan continues to check off those semifinal-round finishes in the 2010 NHRA Full Throttle Drag Racing Series, making it five following this weekend's Mopar Mile-High NHRA Nationals. Hagan competed in a special Mopar Dodge Charger R/T Funny Car at Bandimere Speedway.

The Don Schumacher Racing (DSR) driver regained the third spot in the Funny Car point standings when he defeated his teammate Jack Beckman (now fourth in the points) in the quarterfinals (4.276/289.69 to 4.336/285.53) after dismissing Jack Wyatt in the opening stanza (4.231/294.18 to 4.598/259.96). Hagan fell in the semis, his 4.237/290.51 not enough to best Robert Hight, the eventual event winner.

"We have nothing to hang our heads about this weekend," said Hagan. "I'm glad we got our third spot back (which he had given up in Seattle, the first race of the Western Swing - Seattle, Sonoma, Calif., Denver). That's our spot. We're going to keep it."

Mopar-powered DSR driver Ron Capps defeated Tony Pedregon before also
falling to Hight in the quarterfinals and is currently fifth in the points. The next event is the 29th annual NHRA Nationals in Brainerd, Minn., Aug. 12-15.
