DELMAR, Del. -- It's no secret that NHRA drag racing is a family sport so, it's not uncommon to find first and second generation racers actively participating among NHRA's sportsman and ET ranks. Well, the Raser family, from Oxford, Penn. seems to have them all beat. With three generations, spanning from 74 year-old Lon to 19 year-old Jason, all racing at the NHRA Summit Racing Series Northeast Division Finals for Cecil County Raceway, their dedication to the sport of drag racing is truly notable. Among them they have nearly 100 years of drag racing experience.

The obsession with the sport first began with Lon, in 1958, when the Pennsylvania native began racing in Super Stock. He then started bringing his sons Don and Dave, who cut their teeth in Stock Eliminator. Then when Dave's son Jason, a sophomore at the University of Delaware, was old enough to race, the Raser's family tradition was passed on.

Currently the Raser family race at Cecil County Raceway, in Rising Sun, Md., where Lon, Don, Dave and Jason all compete in two categories on a weekly basis.
