Fans attending the TascaParts.com NHRA New England Nationals presented by Bandero Premium Tequila will be in for some extra excitement as Ernie Bogue will be on hand with his “Beast from the East” jet dragster.
While the race will mark the car’s debut at an NHRA national event, driver and team owner Bogue has wheeled the car for more than two decades. Born and raised in Oakdale, Conn., Bogue’s parents introduced him to drag racing at an early age. Prior to making a name for himself in the jet car world, he owned and drove a Pro Modified entry for 10 years. In 1994, at the young age of 19, Bogue was crowned rookie of the year in the Northeast Outlaw Pro Mod Association!
Bogue holds a champion title from the 2017 40th annual Kelly Services Night Under Fire event, is a three-time Jet Wars champion, 2019 North American Jet Dragster champion, and is the current track record holder at Palo Marga Int'l Speedway in Aruba.
