New England Dragway Ray Knight

It doesn’t come as a startling revelation that capturing a championship in any category at New England Dragway is the result of determination, skill and hard work.  This year’s Indy Auto Parts Super Pro Champion Ray Knight is the epitome of those attributes.  Ray has been part of the New England Dragway racing community for decades, recognized by his peers as one of the toughest drivers on the track.  But, if you ask him about the most thrilling aspect of this year’s hard fought battle you will not hear stories about margins of victories measuring in the ten-thousandths or near perfect reaction times.  Instead he will tell you it’s the opportunity to share the podium with his son Steven who captured the E.C.O.P.E. Junior Dragster crown.
