Last winter, former Comp champ Frank Aragona Jr. made a deal with team owner Charlie Greco and bought the E/DA dragster with which Doug Doll Jr. drove to the 2016 Comp championship. The purchase immediately paid dividends for Aragona, who won his eighth career national event and first Comp title since 2013 when he defeated Pete Hanratty’s A/DA in the final. Aragona lost .11-second to Competition Index Control penalties before the final round but needn’t have worried because Hanratty, who was down .09-second in CIC penalties, red-lighted. For Aragona, the win was extra special because he lives in Freehold, N.J., just minutes away from Old Bridge Township Raceway Park, and he had never won his home event.
