We are finally Drag Racing at all four tracks

by Neil Van Zile

All four of the dragstrips that service the New England region hosted some action this past weekend. Unfortunately, our pesky early spring weather kept one track from finishing their eliminators on both Saturday and Sunday. So we only have one complete set of race results and one partial set to report, but we do have links to a lot of great photos from all four tracks.

New England Dragway was the only track to actually finish their eliminator when they hosted Race #3 of the VP Race Fuels Bracket Points Series on Saturday. Sunday was Mother’s Day and NED has historically been closed that day, and this year was no different. 

Lebanon Valley Dragway had a Bikes in the Valley race and Race #2 for the Central Mass Drag Racers scheduled for Saturday, and Race #1 of the NHRA Summit Bracket Points Series planned for Sunday. Unfortunately, there were no winners for either event due to late day rains that ended the action early on both days. Saturday’s racing ended before time trials finished. Sunday’s weather looked like it might hold off long enough to finish the eliminators, but the rains came before any class was able to get to a final round.

New Oxford Dragway had great weather for racing on Friday night, but they couldn’t beat the clock and were only able to finish two eliminators in their Bracket Points program before they hit the curfew. 

Winterport Dragway successfully held their Opening Day event on Sunday and will begin their Bracket Points series next weekend.
