Dragtime News On Location

Welcome to our photo coverage of the NHRA Toyota Summernationals. held June 4th - 7th, 2015 at Old Bridge Township Raceway Park in Englishtown, NJ. We'll be starting our visit with Friday, June 5th. What a day! Even though it started out wet, it quickly cleared and the action got underway with only a minimal delay. There were lots and lots of Sportsman racers on the property so as usual we focused most heavily on them, although we also included the pros, too.

NHRA provided us with access to the starting-line photo area on Friday and as a result we got some great up-close shots of the cars. On Saturday we concentrated more on the Sportsman classes as much as possible. By the time Sunday rolled around we had more than enough Sportsman coverage so we shot a handful of Top Fuel and Funny before calling it a weekend. We had a great time and had the pleasure of meeting many drivers, both Professional and Sportsman.

A great addition to this year's event is the Hanna Motorsports jet funny car team. They'll close today's show after the final pair of Top Fuel Dragsters go down the track.
