In Beast Coast news, we have Englishtown Raceway's Spring Nationals, also in its 14th year. The Northeast's unofficial premier drag racing/show event, this year saw more than $20,000 in cash and product fall into the hands of winners in eight classes of drag racing and 60(!) show categories. Sport FWD boiled down to Kelvin Gomez and his '96 Civic with a 10.301 @ 149.41 mph over Elvis Liriano's 10.9-second pass, Unlimited FWD saw Henry Montero's '95 Civic pull a 9.632 @ 159.7 over Jonathan Reynolds in a busted DC2, but the true show of the day was in All Motor, with Jose Bello and his '92 Civic's 10.513-second run almost not fast enough to edge out vixens Loan Nguyen and Cheryl McCollough, with a 10.759-second Final and 10.903-second Semi-final effort, respectively. Props to Abel Burgos for taking Quick 32 with an 8.757 @ 147.34 mph in his '72 Datsun, but damn-Jorge Lazcano's qualifying run of a 6.697 @ 211.49 mph in his '05 350Z was straight sickness!
