Three-time NHRA world champ Dan Fletcher claimed the inaugural ThisIsBracketRacing.com BTE Power Rankings overall championship on the strength of a phenomenal season that included nine NHRA national event victories. The unique program, hosted by Sportsman racing's only online driving school, ranks Sportsman competitors based on final-round appearances regardless of class, sanction, and type of competition. The program awards drivers Power Points for final-round finishes at any major event, including bracket races that feature a winner's purse of $5,000 or more. More than 1,400 Sportsman competitors earned BTE Power Points throughout the 2009 season. Fletcher received a lucrative prize package that included a BTE Top Sportsman (or Top Dragster) Powerglide transmission, K&N carbon fiber scoop, and a complimentary annual subscription to ThisIsBracketRacing.com.
