In this Feb. 24, 2011, photo provided by NHRA, Antron Brown stands in front of his Top Fuel dragster during the season-opeing NHRA event in Pomona, Calif. Entering this weekend’s Auto Club NHRA Finals in Pomona, Brown is in third place, behind leader Spencer Massey and second-place Del Worsham. If Brown can win the series crown he would be the first African-American to win an NHRA professional title as well as the first to win a series crown in a major American auto racing series. Brown has raced to victory in the Top Fuel category at the last two Auto Club NHRA Finals. (AP Photo/NHRA, Marc Gewertz) less
