The NHRA 41st Annual Lucas Oil Deep Clean Supernationals concluded on Monday at Old Bridge Township Raceway Park in Englishtown, New Jersey following a rain delay.

Here are the results from Monday's final rounds in Englishtown:

Larry Dixon defeated Antron Brown in Top Fuel as Dixon went a 3.824 at 320.05 mph, going a perfect six for six in final rounds this season. Brown went up in smoke running a 6.314 at 101.94 mph. Dixon collected the 54th win of his career and also won at Englishtown last June. Dixon has a 199-point lead over Tony Schumacher in the standings.

Bob Tasca got a hometown win on Monday, scoring the Funny Car victory in his FordParts.com Ford Mustang Funny Car over Del Worsham on a holeshot. Tasca ran a 4.117 to Del's 4.107. Tasca took home a win in Top Alcohol Funny Car in 2007 but I'd say this was a little sweeter.

Mike Edwards took home his seventh win of the season, winning the Pro Stock final against Shane Gray. Edwards cut a .012 reaction time and ran a 6.596 at 209.39 mph to Gray's 6.634 at 209.07 mph and took home his first Englishtown win and 27th of his career. Edwards has an impressive 34-4 win-loss record this season and extends the points lead.

Michael Phillips took the Racers Edge Suzuki to the win at Englishtown. Phillips ran a 6.911 at 194.32 to Johnson's 6.886 at 194.63 mph as Phillips was first off the lights at .012 and took the holeshot victory.

The NHRA ThunderValley Nationals from Bristol will be next weekend.
