Atco, NJ — Advance Auto Parts Top Alcohol Dragster pilot Josh Hart is on a hot streak at Atco Dragway. The Florida native has won the past two TAD events at Atco Dragway.
Hart had to defeat Dan Page both times in the final round. Once Page had problems, Hart was able to coast to the win.
He went 5.244 at 272.83 mph. Page could only muster a 7.530 at 112.79 mph pass.
Last year, also in the final round, Hart, who was then sponsored by John Deere, had a 5.344 at 269.56. Page had a 5.401 at 270.16 mph.
Hart joins Rich McPhillips as the only two Top Alcohol Dragster pilots to win this race. McPhillips won the inaugural race in 2014 and again in 2015.
There's also another interesting dynamic to this. Page and Hart share brother crew chiefs.
They were not previously talking to each other. But according to Hart, they're talking again.
