I couldn't make this event personally, but lucky for us we have a dedicated bunch of folks that hit the starting line and stands and posted their pics and vids up on GDR. Judging by what we saw, the stands looked PACKED and heads up racing got some good publicity! The 8.50 Index race from 5/29 was rained out, those that purchased a tech card were invited back to run at the Snap-On night of thrills event. 2 qualifiers were held, then an 8 car field went to eliminations. Headed to the finals were Rob Poochigian and the kid TJ Kasper. Rob baaaaarely went red, and TJ took home yet another win in the 8.50 Index program at Englishtown.

Running exhibition passes were a couple of funny cars, nostalgia funny cars like US Male, and I also saw a pair of Pro Stock cars making passes (did I?). A few pro mods were in the house as well, was nice to see Blasi Racing's Pro Mod making some wicked passes, with the exhaust lit up on the night time pass. Also keeping the crowd busy was a fleet of car crushing monster trucks, like Grave Digger, Wild Thang, and Captain's Curse.

Check out the material below to get caught up!
