Ask any competitive Honda drag racing aficionado what the best track in the U.S. is and you'll undoubtedly get more than a few votes for E-Town. Furthermore, if you're an avid Honda Tuning Magazine reader, you may remember Jeremy Lookofsky talking about beating his current record (at that time) and stating, "We're so close, but yet so far away. Stay tuned, though, my thoughts are that it will happen at E-Town, Fall Nationals--the perfect way to end a race season." Well, he called it. Running consistent low 9s naturally aspirated for quite some time, Lookofsky's Drag Cartel, tube-frame chassis Civic finally got over the humpand in spectacular fashion. Crushing his previous record of 9.01 @ 148 with an incredible 8.96 @ 151, Lookofsky once again blazed a new trail in modern-day Honda performance. But that wasn't the only record to fall during the weekend. Prayoonto Racing's very own Loan Prayoonto decided to smash the All Motor street record with a 9.93 @ 138. She then made quick work of backing it up with a 9.96 @ 137!

Along with Drag Cartel, a number of other West Coasters made the trek cross-country to compete at the yearly event. SpeedFactory out of Washington, after having set a new record earlier in the year that landed them in low 8-second territory, rocketed to a mind-blowing 8.13 @ 188, earning themselves yet another new record and inching them ever closer to the coveted 7-second mark.

In the SFWD (small tire) class, another record fell as the Sheepey Built Integra, piloted by the infamous one, Chris Miller of CMR, clicked off an 8.70 @ 179.
