Volume 1 – Issue 29
For the week of October 4 – 11, 2021

by Neil Van Zile

The drag racing season is winding down here in the New England region, and accordingly, most of the various points series have already crowned champions. Winterport Dragway was the lone track with a race left on the schedule to decide that track’s class winners and they held that event this past weekend.

Lebanon Valley Dragway hosted the next-to-last race of the NODRAMA club’s season on Saturday, and that race is still too tight to call. Doc Z’s 9th Albany Shakedown Shootout was also held on Saturday. 

The Import Face-Off crew made finished their Northeast swing at LVD on Sunday.

New England Dragway was the site of the next-to-last race for the Central Mass Drag Racers and the Fast by Gast Top Bike series on Saturday. 

Sunday at NED saw the final race of the 2021 season for the Outlaw 10.5 series and all five class champs were crowned. 

The Underground Street Bike series also held races for its two index classes, and the East Coast Flatheads were racing for points as well.

Winterport Dragway hosted their last Bracket Points race on Sunday.

Did you know that there are nearly 70 different series championships spread out over the four dragstrips that serve the New England region?

I didn’t, but now I do. 

We are still awaiting a couple of final points races to decide the last of the racing series championships. Once those champs are crowned Northeast Drag News will publish a complete listing, with photos of all of the drag racing champions from 2021. Hopefully we won’t miss anyone.
