Volume 1 – Issue 27
For the week of October 18 – 24, 2021

 It took until almost the final round of the final race for the last champion of the 2021 season to be crowned when the Northeast Old Drag Racers and Musclecar Association (NODRAMA) held their last points race at Lebanon Valley Dragway.

Ironically, the champ isn’t old, and she drives a pony car, but Britt Taylor earned the championship trophy with a strong finish in the second half of her season.

The Central Mass Drag Racers held two eliminators on Saturday at New England Dragway, an open gambler’s race, and a club Top 16 shootout.

Sunday featured the NY State Championship Bracket Gamblers Race at Lebanon Valley.

The cold, dry weather also helped a couple of racers in their efforts to set personal records. 

Jim Fisher has been working all season on getting his Buick Grand National into the 7-second range, and he succeeded on Saturday at LVD with a beautiful, straight-as-a-string pass that netted Fisher a 7.98-second time slip.

On Sunday, Ernie Bogue, Jr. took his “Beast From The East” jet dragster on a 308 mph ride at LVD that left the small crowd in the stands speechless. Just goes to show you never know what might happen at the dragstrip.
