(05/29/12) Old Bridge Township Raceway Park hosts the ninth stop of the NHRA Full Throttle Drag Racing Series. Now that the NHRA points standings are taking shape and the Traxxas Nitro Shootout board is nearly full, drivers will have to bring their A game to New Jersey if they want an entry into the 100,000 Traxxas Shootout and a spot in the NHRA countdown to the Championship!
Old Bridge Township Raceway is one of the original seven NHRA national event tracks. Even though John Force Racing has been the dominate team in Funny Car this year, the Don Schumacher Racing team has been making a stand the past couple events, winning the last two races in Funny Car. Up to this point, Top Fuel has had a good assortment of drivers take home a Wally this year, but the headline has still been all about Spencer Massey. He has been in four finals this year, winning three of them. This being said, last years Toyota Supernationals winners were Mike Neff in Funny Car and Spencer Massey in Top Fuel. Can Mike take Traxxas and John Force Racing back to the winner circle in Funny Car and will Spencer Massey steal a fourth Top Fuel win of the 2012 season and defend his 2011 win?
These questions will be answered this weekend in New Jersey! Traxxas will be on-site with their full line of RC cars, support staff, and mobile hobby store. Fans will have a chance to drive a Traxxas Slash, a Traxxas 1/16 Rally car, and watch our professional RC drivers demonstrate the agility, power, and strength of Traxxas vehicles! Make sure you stop by and check out what we have to offer. If you don’t plan on attending the races this weekend, you can stay up-to-date on Traxxas.com, Facebook.com/TraxxasRacing, and on the Traxxas Racing Twitter page.
