        Used to go all the time.....not so much anymore. The track is only about 20 miles away and when the wind is right, I can hear the TF cars.....

          It's been about 9 years since I've been to a "top fuel" event. Nothing can match being there in person to experience the impact of those cylinders firing off.
          Going back Sunday, then heading back home. Seems to be a great track.

            A few pix. As many of you know, nitro methane fumes from a running TF motor are pretty intense. 20170422_153647.jpg Really cool 69 Charger Daytona Pro Mod

            Really like the picture, and the statement at the bottom of the picture: 20170422_101142.jpg Same team, and another true statement on the back of the wing: 20170422_102514.jpg

              The track is good when NHRA takes it over and preps it for the big guns but it sucks most of the time for the weekend warriors.

                I didn't even do that!! If I can't be there or participate in some form, well, don't want to be there or watch on TV.....at least one of my last full passes around 2003 or so was one that was worth mentioning.....
