A perfect summer afternoon set the stage for Tom Boucher’s campaign July 26. It was the fourth All Star Racing Association (ASRA) battle of the season and first at New England Dragway for 2014, with 50 racers ready to battle for a shot at the championship. Things heated up in the quarter final round when Tim Stickles at the helm of his F/SA ’79 Aspen parlayed a 11.09 elapsed time to get past a red lighting Mike McCollumn’s ’67 E/SA Chevy II. Tome Boucher inched his ’97 Firehawk into the beams and benefited from a dial busting Greg Gay’s ’69 C/SA Dodge. Vic Santos posted a 10.31 in his ’85 Firebird to catch Tyler Fillipone at the finish line. Lee Valentine made his way into the semi final round thanks to a bye run. He met Tim Stickles in the semi final and assembled a four-thousandths package for a spot in the final. On the other side of the ladder Boucher locked horns with Vic Santos and moved into the final with a 9.77 run on his 9.75 dial. The all late model Firebird finale saw Boucher run right on his 9.76 while Valentine went four hundredths under to give Boucher the spot in New England Dragway’s winner circle.
Thanks to the efforts to New England Dragway's Junior Dragster racers D.R.A.W. will receive a nice boost to their coffers. Spearheaded by the Sparago family ju...nior competitors raised nearly $1,200 for D.R.A.W., the organization dedicated to helping all drag racers during troubled times.
The racers raised money by holding a bake sale and 50/50 raffle during the Lucas Oil Regional event at New England Dragway on July 19.
Competition heats up this weekend with intense battles shaping up as racers compete for the 2014 Division 1 championship July 18 – 20 at New England Dragway. Highlight this year’s event is the spectacular Night of Fire on Saturday, July 19. The best Top Alcohol Dragster and Top Alcohol Funny Cars in the country converge on Epping’s pristine quarter mile to walk away with the coveted “Wally” and important championship points.
“Last weekend we had several teams show up and test as they prepare for this weekend,” said New England Dragway General Manager Joe Lombardo. “Jackie Fricke and John Finke put down some pretty impressive runs in their nitro cars, gaining critical tuning data in the process. Both drivers ran better than 260 miles per hour. They feel with the right weather conditions race fans will see some new track records set in both elapsed time and mile per hour,” added Lombardo.
