Super Gas champ Tom Goldman’s second-career victory evoked memories of Old Bridge Township Raceway Park in Englishtown, N.J., where he won his first national event title in 2013. After he defeated Michelle Furr in the final round with a nearly perfect 9.909, Goldman didn’t’ need to be reminded that the Virginia Motorsports Park event replaced Englishtown on the NHRA calendar two years ago. No matter the venue, Goldman was tough to beat with his ’58 Corvette roadster. Highlights from eliminations included a pair of great .008 and .007 lights as well as a 9.906 to 9.892 win against six-time Division 1 champion in the semifinals. Furr nearly claimed her fourth national event title before a breakout in the final round. She used a 9.915 in the quarterfinals to earn a bye into her seventh national event final.
