Dragtime News On Location: NHRA Lucas Oil Drag Racing Series / Englishtown NJ, September 2012
We came to Old Bridge Township Raceway Park in Englishtown, NJ on Saturday and Sunday, September 8th and 9th for the NHRA Lucas Oil Drag Racing Series Divisional. In attendance were Top Dragster, Top Sportsman, Comp, Super Comp, Super Gas, Super Street, Super Stock and Stock. The turnout of cars was huge! It looked like a National event. We shot a ton of photos to try to give as many racers as possible some coverage. We also focused on the early rounds on Sunday, again to give the most racers some coverage. This piece will be 600 photos, so racers please be patient because we'll have to do this in four parts! Now let's get on with it!
When we arrived at the track on Saturday, these were the conditions: wet, but the rain had stopped.
Super Stock racer Jamie Schoenly figured it was clear enough to drop the gate and release the Maverick from its crate.
Lots of water still everywhere.
In my travels I ran into an old friend: that's racer Mike Calabro and his son Michael, Jr.
Hey, the sun's out!
The makes Super Street racer Pat Doherty happy!
Racers started bringing their cars out of dry-bernation, like the Stockers of John Leach...
...and Mike Quarterone.

I've met Top Sportsman racer Bill Janke a few times. He's a very nice guy and a class-act. And he bracket races a door car at over 190 MPH. Pretty cool.

Don't let your dragsters become hot and bothered. Keep them cool and dry with their own personal canopy.

So it's going to be one of those days. No rain, then lots of rain. Like now. Put the cars away!
ATI Performance Products was on the property with their trailer, and their DragPak Challenger Stocker.
These are some hard-core fans right here. They drove down from Connecticut hoping to see the Alcohol classes. Despite their disappointment at not having Alcohol at this event, they vowed to stay all day and enjoy the rest of the classes. Left to right it's Ro of Hamden, CT, Rene Gilbert of Meriden, CT, Dave Dow of Berlin, CT and Jim Red of Hamden, CT.
Sun's out! Now it seems like we're catching a big window of dry weather, so the track prep gets underway.
