11 years going, Honda Day brought yet another great event. Compared to the last few years, I have to say this year was a lot more organized and well run. Granted arriving at the venue at 6am, there was hardly any traffic getting to the track. Great job and I hope this continues in the future. Another change this year was the addition of a VIP car show section. Competitors, prior to the event, had to submit photos of their car in order to be entered into this section and I thought this was great. It was nice to have the more elite class of cars in one section rather than to have to weed them out throughout the 800 other cars that attend the show. On the other side of the bleachers was some exciting drag racing. 8 second turbo civics and 9 second all motor cars running down the 1320. I can remember when I first started going out to races, if you were running 10’s or even 11’s, that was considered Fast. Anyways, congrats to OGS for putting on another great event and putting together a fantastic give-a-way car. For those that wasn’t able to make it, click the photos above to jump to the gallery.
Honda Day celebrated the 10th year anniversary with a huge bang. Can’t believe it’s been a decade already since it all started… The event was held on August 11th and 12th at Raceway Park, Englishtown NJ. Every year I notice the turnout get’s bigger and bigger however this has got to be the largest Honda Day event at Etown to date! The gates opened at 8am but I heard that cars actually started lining up as early as 2am! Within hours the car show area was sold out. It truly felt like the cars and spectators were just pouring in non stop all throughout the day. Congratulations to all the car show and drag race winners and a huge congrats to the lucky lady that won the 10th year anniversary project DC2 giveaway! For more photos of the event Click Here!

Honda Day was held on April 14th and 15th at Atco Raceway in NJ. This event was recorded as the largest turnout in Atco Raceways’s 50 year history. Cars lined up in at the crack of dawn and the event was sold out within hours due to capacity limits. The Ruckus crew also rolled in deep this year. The event was hosted by our very own Frankie Five and MC Slick. Both provided solid entertainment and got the crowd jumping all weekend showering them with free gifts from the stage. We also had some very special guests that flew in strait from Japan to check out the east coast scene and cover the event for USDM Freax magazine! Congratulations to all the car show and drag race winners. I cannot wait to see what the next Honda Day event at Etown will bring. For more photos of the event Click Here!
It wouldn’t be a Raceway Park Fall Nationals Event if it didn’t have crazy weather, fast cars, tons of break downs, hot cars and scantily clad women on stage dancing around. It was great to see Gary Gardella back on the drag strip racing again but personally, I was quite upset that Chris Rado wasn’t able to make it out to the event to have their grudge match. It’s never a dull moment at Raceway Park events and what a way to close out the season. I can’t wait until next years Spring Nationals to see how this scene continually progresses. Enjoy the photos!
