David Rampy, Dan Fletcher, and Kevin Helms all added to their win counts, while Bradley Johnson, Brad Basgall, and Randy Cruickshank each captured their first NHRA national event win at the Mopar Mile-High NHRA Nationals at Bandimere Speedway.
John Hart in Alcohol Dragster and Phil Burkhart in Alcohol Funny Car led the winners list as New England Dragway hosted the NHRA Lucas Oil Drag Racing Series Night of Fire.

The NHRA Lucas Oil Drag Racing Series event scheduled for July 21-22 at Gateway Motorsports Park in Madison, Ill., has been rescheduled due to a multiple-day excessive heat advisory for the St. Louis area. The event has been rescheduled for Oct. 20-22.
The Fallen Patriots NHRA Route 66 Nationals presented by K&N Filters had a JEGS Allstars double, a traditional double, and a rare father-son final round, but all of them took a backseat to the most newsworthy event of the weekend: Dan Fletcher’s milestone 100th NHRA national event victory.
In a thrilling, down-to-the-wire battle, the host team from the NHRA North Central Division claimed the overall team title during the JEGS Allstars competition at Route 66 Raceway on Saturday of the Fallen Patriots NHRA Route 66 Nationals presented by K&N Filters.
