Today we congratulate the winners of this past weekend's Dodge NHRA Nationals at Maple Grove Raceway in Mohnton, PA... Hip hip hooray for Ron Capps on scoring the Funny Car "Wally" trophy at the Grove. It's his 7th victory of the 2017 season and the 57th of his career. Capps drove his NAPA Auto Parts Charger R/T to defeat a tough Courtney Force in the final. He retook the points lead in the Countdown to the Championship battle... Whether Drag Racing Underground's NHRA winner predictor, the infamous Franky, of "Franky & Felicia" fame is still AWOL in Atlantic City or back home in Queens, he must be mighty darn happy about Brittany Force taking the Top Fuel win. Brittany piloted her Monster Energy drink dragster to beat Steve Torrence in the final. And the win was certainly no fluke, 'cause she beat other heavyweights like Wayne Newby, Tony Schumacher and reigning world champion Antron Brown in earlier rounds. Maple Grove proved to be Brittany's second win of the season, her first win since Epping back in June... No #1 Pro Stock qualifier Bo Butner made it all the way to the winner's circle. He beat Greg Anderson in the final with his Jim Butner's Auto Chevy Camaro, reclaiming the lead in the Countdown to the Championship points standings. This marked Butner's 4th career victory -- he's making quite a name for himself among the "Factory Hot Rod" contingent... In the two-wheeling Pro Stock Motorcycle category, Old Bridge Township Raceway Park alumnus Eddie Krawiec made it three consecutive wins in a row by clinching victory at the Grove. This was Eddie's 5th win of the season aboard his Screamin' Eagle Vance & Hines Harley Davidson. He's making history and lots of us locals proud... Next on the grueling NHRA tour is the AAA Insurance NHRA Midwest Nationals at Gateway Motorsports Park in St. Louis on Sept 29th - Oct 1st... BE THERE!!...

 

 

Congrats to Brittany Force and all the winners this past weekend at Maple Grove Raceway
