ImageEnglishtown Raceway Park did it again, packing the stands full of people, and the pits full of some impressive machinery to wow the crowd for the evening. We saw some wicked Pro Mod Passes, including Jeff Blasi in his Nitrous fed Vette, and Andy Jensen, who if you remember, set a world record at last month's event after going in the 5's with his single turbo, small block powered Pro Mod. Steve Cossis brought out his brand new car for some of its first ever passes. As usual, PC Richard & Son was sponsoring the event and brought out a bunch of their race cars.

Image Hannah Motorsports was out with their Jet Funny Cars, the Top Secret car driven by Ken Hall, and the First Strike car driven by Rich Hannah. They also brought along their Queen of Diamonds Jet Dragster, driven by Jill Canuso. Mother Nature cut our night short by a few minutes, so the jets couldn't make their second pass. That didn't stop them from putting on a show, however, as Ken and Rich emptied their fuel tanks and gave the crowd an awesome fire show at the starting line before the fireworks were lit in the famous "Tunnel of Fire."

ImageRaceway Park realy outdid themselves tonight, adding on to their regular group of Monster Trucks by bringing out TWELVE Monster Trucks for some car-crushing action. The fans were on their feet as the trucks had a drag race, zooming down each side of the track when the tree dropped, crushing cars on the way, then racing back along the opposite side of the track, crushing even more cars. Later on in the night, the trucks came back out for some freestyle action. We saw it all from the likes of trucks like Bigfoot, Monster Mutt, and Tom Meents driving Maximum Destruction. Monster Mutt was doing some sick cyclones on the starting line, dizzying just about everyone watching. Tom Meents had a response, and did some even crazier cyclones, most scratching their heads wondering why he wasn't flipping over -- he was spinning THAT fast! In the end, the crowd favorite Meents took home the trophy yet again.

ImageAlong with the exhibition programs, many of Raceway Park's regular race programs were featured at the event, such as programs we follow like the 8.50 Index. and two of the Corvette Challenge classes. We saw Mike Conway and Jason Penna duke it out in the 8.50 Index final, Mike taking home the win after Jason went in deep and got the foul. David Shen took the Corvette Pro 10.0 class, and Angelo Valla took the win in the Corvette Pro 8 class (Valla also regularly races the 8.50 Index program). Congratulations to all of the winners, and thank you for taking the time to come out to an Exhibition show and share heads up racing with a huge crowd!

I'm a past customer of yours, pics came out great. I drive the Total Insanity funny car that was at the Night of Fire and was wondering if you have any shots of it at night, in the left lane. Thanks in advance.
