ENGLISHTOWN, N.J.â€” After two qualifying days of heat and humidity at Old Bridge Township Raceway Park, the warm weather was replaced by cooler temperatures and the result was tire smoke from a lot of Top Fuel dragsters in the opening round, including Doug Herbert`s Snap-on Racing entry.
Herbert left the starting line first (.080 to .091 seconds) but encountered the traction trouble soon thereafter and Larry Dixon got the win with a 4.695-second time at 316.52 mph to Herbert`s 6.198 at 145.25 mph.
The finish left Herbert in ninth place in the Top Fuel point standings
