Sunday

ENGLISHTOWN, N.J. In the final results from Old Bridge Township Raceway Park and the final round in the NHRA Northeast Division Lucas Oil Drag Racing Series Lincoln Morehead took the win in Super Stock and the division points lead over Kent Hanley to lead the list of winners at Raceway Park.

Morehead faced off with Kent Hanley for the Super Stock win and possibly the Northeast Division Lucas Oil Drag Racing Series Championship with Morehead coming out on top for the win and the lead in the division standings.  Although this is the final event in the Northeast Division, racers can travel outside their home division and continue to score championship points.  Morehead clocked in at 10.249 seconds at 121.62 in his '87 Camaro for the win.

In Comp Eliminator it was Ray Vierheller turning on the win light to take home the trophy over Frank Aragona, Freehold, N.J.  Aragona appeared to be on his way to the win but Vierheller caught him just before the finish line with a 7.288 second, 179 mph run.  The runner-up finish should give Aragona the division title.

Michael Kaufman and Jason Hoff took wins in the division's MXI/Magnaflux Top Sportsman and Top Dragster classes presented by Select Performance.  Kaufman, Woodcliff Lake, N.J., ran down Dennis Gaboriault in his '67 Corvette in 6.804, 201.55 for the win and division points leader Hoff beat Gary Koebbe who went too quick by .004 seconds and broke out in trying to hold off Hoff.

Stock Eliminator saw a good close race in the final with Bob Broadbent beat Lenny Williams in his '69 Camaro clocking in at 10.303 seconds, 128.49 mph.

Rounding out the winners at Old Bridge Township Raceway Park were Jack Sepanek in Super Comp over Michael Daymude, Mike Sawyer defeated John Maggiulli in Super Gas, Timmy Markoglu held off Marty Krohn in Super Street and Ed Armstrong downed Adam Fricke in Pro Stock Snowmobile.
