We wanted to say congratulations to Tony Bartone and the whole New York Top Fuel team for locking up their second straight NHRA Hot Rod Heritage Series Fuel Dragster national championship at New England Dragway on August 30th. An amazing feat in it's own right, Bartone collected titles this season at the March Meet in Bakersfield, the Pepsi Nightfire at Firebird, and the Hot Rod Reunion in Epping, New Hampshire this past weekend (where he recorded a pair of booming 5.60 performances in beating Dusty Green in the final). His only loss thus far in 2015 was to Bill Dunlap in the final round at the Reunion in Bowling Green, Kentucky. With just the Reunion in Bakersfield (in late-October) left on the racing calendar, T-Bone maintains a lead that cannot be overtaken. Great job to brothers Tony and Michael, Steve Boggs the mastermind behind it all, and the whole team for sweeping the championship from all your friends out here in the Gem state.
