NORWALK, OH- Drivers in incredibly impressive dragsters and door cars converged for the NGK $40 Grand Nationals presented by Hughes Performance, Sept. 2-4, 2022 at Summit Motorsports Park in Norwalk, Ohio.

Entries were limited to 425 for the esteemed event which welcomed competitors from Ohio, Michigan, Pennsylvania, New York and other states. Some of them traveled many miles before arriving at America’s Racetrack.

After several seriously challenging rounds on the perfectly prepared track, J.P. Schuster of Vienna, Ohio went to the Summit Motorsports Park Winner’s Circle in his dragster at the Friday, Sept. 2, running of the event, and David Davis of Toledo, Ohio was the runner-up.

Focused on the finish line, Will Holloman of Pine Level, North Carolina firmed up the win in his pickup truck at the Saturday, Sept. 3 running of the event, and John Brannen of Dunedin, Florida was the runner-up.
