Dragtime News On Location: 2016 NHRA Summernationals
We were on location at the NHRA Summernationals at Old Bridge Township Raceway Park from Friday - Saturday, June 10th - 11th, 2016. Classes were Stock, Super Stock, Super Gas, Super Comp, Competition Eliminator, Top Dragster, Pro Mod, Pro Stock Motorcycle, Pro Stock, Funny Car and Top Fuel Dragster. As always, we have to give thanks to NHRA for supplying credentials and for their hospitality during the weekend. As a result we were able to get some really great shots of all the classes. Typical of our coverage, we tend to go heavier than most on the Sportsman classes. We also tried to position ourselves in a variety of places around the track to provide numerous points-of-view.

Due to the volume of photos, we'll be presenting this in four parts, so be patient and stick with it. Subscribe to the email list (upper-right of this page) to be alerted to when new items are published.

Part III is now published HERE or start at the beginning with Part I HERE.

IHRA Drag Racing Series Finale at US 131 Motorsports

NORWALK, Ohio (July 8, 2016) - International Hot Rod Association (IHRA) officials announced the cancellation of the IHRA World Nationals event and the Summit Pro-Am Tour scheduled at Dragway 42 due to construction delays. The IHRA Drag Racing Series will host their championship event at US 131 Motorsports in Martin, Michigan August 12 - 13, 2016.

Dragway 42 located in West Salem, Ohio was scheduled to be the last event of the 2016 IHRA Drag Racing Series season on September 23 - 24. Unforeseen construction delays have prevented the management at Dragway 42 to complete the rebuilding of the facility to host the IHRA events. The IHRA will look to host a national event at the quarter-mile dragstrip again in 2017 as well as sportsman events.

"Dragway 42 is a big part of the IHRA family and we will continue to monitor their progress in hopes of placing a national event there in 2017," stated Mike Dunn, IHRA President. "I know that Ron and his crew have worked very hard to try and get everything prepared but it has become apparent that it will not be ready for the scheduled September date so we needed to make a decision to accommodate our racers, fans and sponsors."

The IHRA Drag Racing Series "season ending" racer point fund will remain the same despite the elimination of the season-end World Nationals. In addition, the Summit Pro-Am Tour events scheduled for Dragway 42 will not be rescheduled. To assist Division 3 competitors in fulfilling their "in division" points claims, both events scheduled at Empire Dragway August 19-21 will count as "in division" events for those racers claiming Division 3 points in the Summit Pro-Am Tour.

The focus now shifts to the remaining two IHRA Drag Racing Series events at Edmonton, Alberta based Castrol Raceway (July 15 - 17) and Martin, Michigan based US 131 Motorsports (August 12 - 13) as well as preparation for the 2017 season.

Wrap-Up: Fahnestock, Holcomb Become 1st-time MA90A Winners at Maple Grove Raceway

The Mid Atlantic .90 Association finally got its 2016 season underway after weather forced the cancelation of its season opener in May. Maple Grove Raceway in Reading, Pa played host to the series under clear, sunny skies. In the end two new faces graced the Winner's Circle at the end of the two-race weekend held June 25th & 26th, 2016.

Chase Fahnestock was a busy man as he found himself wheeling his DWI Construction / Yards Brewery Dragster in two different states and two different dragstrips. At the beginning of the week, Fahnestock was in Norwalk, OH for the Summit Racing national event. After a tough first round loss, the team packed up and headed east to Maple Grove for Race #2 of the 10 race series. The long trip paid off for the team as Fahnestock found himself in the final against a familiar opponent in Lee Ream. Fahnestock and Ream were no strangers to each other in finals at Maple Grove as the two lined up for the finals of the 2013 Lucas Oil Division 1 event that saw Ream come out on top. This time around Fahnestock had different plans in the rematch as he strapped a 2 thousandth package on Ream. Chase took the starting line advantage (.002 to .015) and parlayed that into a perfect 8.900 to Reams game 8.907. Fahnestock wanted to thank his sponsors & friends and of course his parents, Crystal and Joel for all their hard work and effort to get him to Maple Grove.

The other first time winner came from the Super Gas ranks as Dover, Pa’s Jerry Holcomb wheeled his 2002 Chevy Camaro to victory. In the final, Race # 1 winner Don Miller turned on the dreaded red-light handing the victory to Holcomb and preventing Miller from doubling-up. Holcomb stayed in it and ran it out to a 9.885. Jerry celebrated in style with his wife April, two puppies, his dad and Team Hookdaddy Motorsports.

Other event winners over the weekend included Jack Donnelly taking down 2015 MASCA Champion Ash Senft in Super Comp, Keith Mayers over Bill Trum in Super Street and as mentioned before Don Miller took down Don Knocklick in a battle of “The Dons” in Super Gas on Saturday. Joining Fahnestock and Holcomb in the winner circle on Sunday was once again Mayers as he took down a red-lighting Dom Burgese. Not only did Mayers sweep both MASSA events he picked up a third trophy by winning the Nostalgia Stk/SS Race in his 67 Dodge Coronet.

Wrap-Up: War on Wheels II at Maryland International Raceway
MECHANICSVILLE, MD (July 10, 2016) – On a hot and humid night at Maryland International Raceway ™ (MDIR), Baltimore, Maryland based Tommy Gray and his ’05 Supercharged Corvette once again took to the Winners Circle as the “Last Man Standing”, topping a strong field of eight pro mods at the track’s War on Wheels II mid-week feature.

The event features a “unique”, no qualifying or ladders format where racers draw from a deck of cards for their pairing and lane assignments for eliminations following an earlier shakedown pass. The initial 6 p.m. shakedown session provided an early casualty with Danny Sauro of Gwynn Oak, Maryland and his new nitrous ’68 Camaro not being able to make the first-round call at 7:30 p.m. As a result, Tommy Gray was the recipient of a first-round bye having drawn the lucky card from the deck. Gray didn’t rest on his laurels however, laying down a 4.003 ET at 190.14 MPH serving notice to the rest of the field. In other round-one action, Andy Jensen of Nescopeck, Pennsylvania topped Rob Hunnicutt of Hughesville, Maryland, Carl Stevens of North Herledon, New Jersey grabbed a win over Casey Stemper who was unable to fire his ’63 supercharged Corvette at the line and Ed Burnley of Pasadena, Maryland got past Tim Essick of Port Tobacco, Maryland to move on to semi-final competition.

In the semi-final round, Tommy Gray received his second gift of the evening as Ed Burnley grabbed a red-light giving Gray the automatic win to the finals, Again, Gray didn’t sleep on the free pass as he put down a 3.963 ET at 190.40 MPH as he moved on to the finals. Andy Jensen’s ’68 turbo-charged Camaro got past Steven’s ’14 turbo-charged Camaro using a 4.114 ET to meet up with Gray in the finals and a chance to claim the “Last Man Standing” crown.

In the event final, Gray used an event best 3.931 ET at 191.73 MPH effort to best Jensen’s 4.068 ET to claim the “Last Man Standing” hardware and purse.

"Thank you to all the racers and fans for coming out for our Wednesday War on Wheels program. We are proud of this signature series and pleased with the large turnout on all fronts,” said MDIR Director of Marketing and Public Relations Rick Lindner. “We look forward to hosting this series again on August 10 and we will continue to build on the current success into future seasons.
