Landen Kennedy (age 6-9), Mogan Harp (10-12), and Anna Sawicki (13-17) took top honors during the Division 1 NHRA Lucas Oil Drag Racing Series event at Maple Grove Raceway in Reading, Pa.
In the 6-9 final, Kennedy, near lane, was nearly perfect on the starting line with a .009 reaction, and he used the advantage it gave him to defeat Epping LODRS winner James Stack Jr., 12.356 (12.33 dial) to 12.186 (12.20).
Logan Anderson, far lane, got off the starting line first in the 10-12 final round, but he carried too much momentum on the top end, breaking out by .006-second. That opened the door for Harp, who turned on the win light with a 9.034 (8.99).
The 13-17 final was decided on the starting line when Jeniel Ramos, far lane, red-lighted. That gave the win to Sawicki, who powered to an 8.067 (8.11) en route to victory.
