Craig's biggest hi-light in racing so far is his 1997 Indianapolis Raceway Park Track Championship. His subsequent victory in the Race of Champions of all the track champions in Division 3 was icing on the cake!
2002 - Memorial Day Weekend - Team Kendall Challenge/Summit Racing Series - Craig made it all the way to the final in Super-Pro Eliminator, and won over many fans by picking off dragster after dragster in eliminations. He lost a very close final after momentarily losing sight of one of the pesky railjobs.
2002 - Craig followed up his near-win on Memorial Day with a victory at round 5 of the Team Kendall Challenge/Summit Racing Series event at IRP.
SUPER PRO: Champ: Craig Meyer, Kendallville, IN (’62 Plymouth) – 10.957, 132.29mph; Runner-Up: Cathy Belcher, Nantoul, IL (’98 Boulton) – 7.277, 176.92mph
2002 - Craig finished 17th in the NHRA Division 3 points chase

2000 - Craig's so-far career high points finish in NHRA Division 3 - 13th place
2000 - Craig Meyer finished 13th in NHRA Division 3 Super Street points
1998 - At an NHRA Division 1 race in his first season of Super Street racing, Craig was #1 qualifier in Super Street with a 10.901. In the semi-finals at that same race, he improved to become a member of the Federal Mogul .900 club with a perfect 10.900. Craig just missed a "Wally" when he lost by just .006 seconds in the final round. All this was accomplished without the aid of electronics!
