This past weekend, the Top Alcohol Dragsters and Top Alcohol Funny Cars returned to Atco Dragway in Atco, New Jersey for the NHRA Lucas Oil Drag Racing Series. While the NHRA Lucas Oil Series has competed at the track before, it has been several years since the Top Alcohol Dragsters and Funny Cars competed here.

Rain canceled Friday’s action and delayed much of Saturday’s racing. Saturday afternoon, the racing continued and saw two rounds of qualifying for the Top Alcohol cars.
