Spending my Saturday (yesterday) at Old Bridge Township Raceway Park for the 48th Anuual NHRA Summernationals was a spectacular and sizzling hot rodding affair... The grandstands were packed and the pits were filled with the very best of our nation's sportsman and professional race teams... It was so nice to see so many of you fine folks from the drag racing internet at Raceway Park yesterday. What a pleasure to put cyber "screen names" with faces in person. Lots of old friends and new ones at the track yesterday... As we go into Sunday (today) with eliminations, here's your top qualifiers of their respective fields-- New Jersey native Antron Brown is No#1 in Top Fuel. This makes for Antron's 48th career top qualifier (whew!). He also broke his 2 year E'Town track record for elapsed time with a scorching 3.713 on Friday... Courtney Force makes the Summernationals her fifth No#1 qualifier of the season in her Advance Auto Parts Camaro nitro Funny Car. She also set an E'Town  E.T. record for her class on Friday with a 3.725 charge... 'Birthday Boy' Bo Butner hangs on to the No#1 spot in Pro Stock with the Butner's Auto Chevy Camaro (6.551 from Friday). The Summernationals marks Bo's third top qualifier of the season...  Today the temperatures are supposed to go up a bit in Englishtown, so we all need to stay hydrated and healthy-- keep that in mind if you're gonna be at the Summernats today... If you can't make it out to the track, check listings for Fox Sports 1's excellent TV coverage of the event...
