MOHNTON, PA — Moduline-sponsored Top Alcohol Funny Car driver Matt Gill likes competing at Maple Grove Raceway. He has won his second straight Divisional at the facility.

Gill defeated fellow Divisional 1 racer D.J. Cox in the final round.

The Massachusetts native went 5.572 at 265.27 mph to get the win. Cox, who calls Maryland home, went 6.804 at 145.30 mph.

Cox had the starting line advantage. However, he began to lose traction and that’s when Gill capitalized.

This Divisional was moved to the dragstrip near Reading, Pennsylvania. Unfortunately, Atco Dragway made the decision to shut its doors for the final time after 63 years in the middle of July.

Thankfully for the racers, Kenny and Kyle Koretsky stepped up to move the race from New Jersey to Pennsylvania.

This is Gill’s 15th Lucas Oil Drag Racing Series win in his career. In addition, this is his third win this season, including the two at Maple Grove.

Gill will attempt to make it three in a row. In one month, Gill will be competing at the NHRA national event at the track.
