Maple Grove Raceway, boosted by Scott Smith’s Street Eliminator championship, won the team title in the NHRA Northeast Division Summit Racing E.T. Finals Saturday at Numidia Dragway.
It’s the 13th championship for Team Maple Grove, an unprecedented amount.
Smith is now eligible to race against other NHRA division champs at the final Nationals race of the season in November at Pomona, Calif.
Also helping the cause were semifinal finishes by Gary Simpers in Pro and Joe Stuebner in Top Bike.
The NHRA Northeast Division Summit Racing Series E.T. Finals are being held Thursday through Sunday at Numidia Dragway.
Team Maple Grove will be going for an unprecedented 13th team championship. The management of Maple Grove Raceway wishes our bracket racers the best of luck this weekend.
Bring home No. 13!!!

Denny Renninger saved his best for last. The Leesport, Pa., racer was the Pro class winner Sunday as Maple Grove Raceway presented its annual National Dragster Challenge.
Even though the Sunoco Race Fuels Money Trail E.T. Series wrapped up its season on Labor Day weekend, several racers returned to The Grove for a chance to win a prestigious Wally trophy that features the likeness of NHRA founder Wally Parks. For just about any drag racer, earning one can be considered a career highlight.
Wallys were also handed out to Derrick Fox (Super), Tom Harhart (Street) and John Lippincott (Top Bike).
The Race 4 Ronald’s House charity race was also held, and nearly 60 drivers took part. The annual event put together by Denny Parisan from County Corvette of West Chester, Pa., benefits the Ronald McDonald House of Philadelphia.
Another charity event kicked off the weekend. The Humane Society of Berks County held its annual Walk for the Animals and Walktoberfest on Saturday, drawing thousands of animal lovers and their dogs. More >
