Dragtime News On Location: 42nd Annual Night of Thrills at Old Bridge Township Raceway Park in Englishtown NJ, July 19, 2017
Englishtown, NJ - We were on location at Old Bridge Township Raceway Park in Englishtown, NJ for the 42 Annual Night of Thrills. I was doing double duty behind the wheel of the Dodge and behind the lens of the Nikon. It's pretty cool that Raceway Park invites the top 8 racers in points to compete before the huge crowd. The Night of Thrills events are really popular with the fans so being able to race in front of them is special for us bracket racers who usually have no audience.

2017 NHRA Summernationals, Englishtown NJ
Englishtown, NJ - We were on location June 9-11, 2017 at Old Bridge Township Raceway Park for the 48th Annual NHRA Summernationals. What a great time! The weather was fantastic (although hot!) and we got TONS of Sportsman photos (and we all love Sportsman photos).

The classes were Top Fuel, Funny Car, Pro Stock, Pro Stock Motorcycle, Pro Modified, Top Sportsman, Competition Eliminator, Super Stock, Stock, Super Comp and Super Gas. As an added treat for me, two of Raceway Park's bracket classes were invited to compete...

Mid Atlantic .90 Association Awards Dinner
We attended the 2016 Awards Dinner for The Mid Atlantic .90 Association, which includes the Mid Atlantic Super Comp Association, the Mid Atlantic Super Gas Association and the Mid Atlantic Super Street Association. It was a great time and the room was packed. This series has gotten bigger and bigger over the years as Super-class racers have found it a great way to hone their .90 throttle-stop-racing set-ups and skills while racing in a fun and friendly environment.

29th Annual Performance Racing Industry Show
We were on location at the 29th Annual Performance Racing Industry Show, held December 8th - 10th, 2016 in Indianapolis, IN, and it was huge!

So sit back and take your time with the article. There's a lot of great info in here about companies whose products you just might be needing as you get ready for the coming season. The coverage starts HERE.

2016 Dodge NHRA Nationals at Maple Grove Raceway
We were on location at the Dodge NHRA Nationals at Maple Grove Raceway on Saturday, October 1, 2016. We were supposed to be there Friday-Sunday, but if you followed the event you know that rain was the big problem all weekend. Friday was totaly washed out, Saturday had some Sportsman cars but they had to make way for the Pros, and when we left the track on Saturday, the forecast for Sunday was so bad that we opted to cancel the hotel, head home and call it a weekend. So as a result there will only be two parts of coverage for this event and it includes a lot of the Pros as well. We'll try again next time, racers.

Part II is now up HERE, or start at the beginning with Part I HERE.

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.

2016 Bracket Bonanza at Englishtown
We were on location at the 2016 Bracket Bonanza at Old Bridge Township Raceway Park. This was a weekend of big-money bracket racing for Super Pro and Pro ET (footbrake) cars.

We were there on Saturday, June 4. The day was well-attended with good car counts in both Super Pro and Pro ET. The track was phenomenal and the event was run very well. There were a lot of heavy hitters on the property shooting for the big bucks.
