Eli Stack (age 6-9), Zack Gale (10-12), and Robert Fortuna (13-17) were the big winners during the Division 1 NHRA Lucas Oil Drag Racing Series event at Numidia Dragway in Pennsylvania.

Landen Kennedy, far lane, got the advantage at the Tree in the 6-9 final round, but Stack was able to drive around him and win, 12.298 (12.17 dial) to 12.348 (12.08).

In the 10-12 title round, Gale, near lane, ran dead on his 9.10 dial to turn on the win light against James Stack, who finished with an 8.913 (8.90).

Fortuna, near lane, got off the starting line first, .017 to .045, in the 13-17 final, and he carried that advantage to victory over Frankie Aragona III, who broke out by .012-second trying to chase Fortuna down. Fortuna turned on the win light with a 7.935 (7.92).
