It was good to be back to Lebanon Valley Dragway after a devastating flood about two weeks ago submerged most of the facility along with many racers' trailers and RV's. Howard Commander, track owner, spared no expense in getting the facility back to top shape, and as you'll see in the photos, all of his efforts paid off. The track was hookin', the stands were packed, and the fans enjoyed an awesome night of jets, wheelstanders, fireworks, and doorslammer drag racing.

Image Hannah Motorsports was out for the second time this week with their funny cars, the First Strike driven by Rich Hannah, and the Top Secret funny car driven by Ken Hall. As always, "Ken's Brother" Mike was in the house taking care of the crew responsibilities, and Al Hannah, team owner, was there as well, celebrating his birthday. The crowd was treated to three passes from the Hannah cars, along with it, some ridiculous fire shows and burner pops. Also racing jets was "Team Steam" in their jet-powered dragsters, done up like locomotives, complete with train horns!

ImageThe Super Shockwave Jet Truck made two appearences at the starting line, the crowd on their feet each time! This beast pushes out about 25,000 horsepower out of twin J-34 jets, while flames shoot out of the stacks all the way down the 1320. If you ever get a chance to see this truck in person, we highly recommend you take the opportunity!

Nate Pritchett was in the house, promoting the upcoming Outlaw Shootout Series coming to LVD on August 22nd-23rd. He dropped the bomb that if you hold a night of fire ticket stub, spectator entry to the Shootout series is only $10. Awesome!

We'd like to thank Sue Bell and the LVD staff for having us at their track! Sue is truly one of the friendliest drag strip managers on the east coast!

We got some neat shots of the Super Shockwave Jet truck, I thought I'd share higher resolution images with everyone! You can download them here
