NORWALK, OH – The NHRA Lucas Oil Drag Racing Series descended on Summit Racing Equipment Motorsports Park Friday for the first day of qualifying for the annual drag racing event, the Cavalcade of Stars.

Members of the OnAllCylinders staff were there, soaking up the sights and sounds of the Norwalk, OH track’s first event of the racing season.

There were tons of cars. 15-second cars. 10-second cars. And five-second cars.

From Gassers to Super Comp to Top Sportsman to Top Alcohol Dragsters—there was something for every kind of car and racing fan.

Please enjoy the photo gallery of various cars (including a jet-powered semi and a racing fuel pump!) from our trip to the track:
