Mercer Grad Top Drag Racer -- Featured in The Times
Antron Brown, a 1998 Mercer graduate, has made headlines in the world of drag racing and is featured in a Trenton Times article Sept. 19 by sports writer Craig Haley. "Don't mistake the value of a college education, even for someone whose job is to drive 7,000-horsepower dragsters at speeds of 330 mph," writes Haley.

Brown's education helped shape the direction of his life, which today places him No. 1 in the point race in Top Fuel, the premier class of drag racing in the National Hot Racing Association. If the Trenton native wins the Top Fuel championship when the 24-event series (including six playoff events) wraps up in November, he would become the first African-American to win a major NHRA championship.
