NHRA returns to Maple Grove Raceway

The Auto-Plus NHRA Nationals are back at Maple Grove Raceway this weekend.

MOHNTON, Pa. -

The NHRA has rolled into Berks County and Maple Grove Raceway.

They'll race this weekend, although things did not start well Thursday. Action on the track was washed out because of rain.

The drivers still think this will be a great weekend as they always get a lot of fan support in Berks County.

Antron Brown certainly feels that way. The NHRA top fuel standings leader loves the atmosphere.

"These fans are more than just fans," Brown said. "I call them nitro-haulics. Once they get a little whiff of this nitro, they can't get enough."
