2024 14th Annual FABO NHRA "Pick 'Em" Game - It's NITRO Burnin' Time Again!!!

Nice work, Bud!

I'm shocked that someone slid in under me. If anyone wants to know who the first round losers will be, just watch my picks. :rolleyes:
You're in the lofty (for me) middle of the pack, alsant!
I zipped through the coverage this morning before work. No PS or PSM coverage until round 2? Jeez. I love the nitro cars as much as anyone, but come on. And the lovefest with Tony Stewart is nauseating. But they go where the money is. Their over promotion of anything they think keeps them in business is unfortunate compared to good, solid coverage. Oh for the days of Diamond P with Steve Evans and Dave McClelland. I miss Mike Dunn, too. My .02 cents.
I just read announcement on MSN.com and nhra.com that Jasmine Salinas will be driving the Scrappers Top Fuel car at the Winternationals next weekend and in the immediate future. Mike Salinas is stepping out of the car to take care of some personal health matters but is looking forward to getting back in the car as soon as he is ready.

@SSG_Karg, you locked Mike Salinas in as your Top Fuel driver pic. Please let me know if you want to pick a new Top Fuel driver.
I will use game points from Jasmine Salinas for any player selecting Mike Salinas as their Top Fuel driver pick until he returns.
please, change one of my 'locked in picks' to
P/SM Gaige Herrara for me :thankyou:

I went to the finals around 2006 and about froze my axx off. It's SoCal should be warm and beautiful. Got to the track and it was about 60 with the wind blowing about 10mph. Had to buy a sweatshirt at one of the stands for about $30.
Good luck guys in the Winter Nationals event
sticking with my 'locked in picks'
