SUPPORT THE BACKBONE OF THE SPORT

Just wondering...Would it break the NHRA bank for Paul Page or Mike Dunn (dumb and dumber) to give a brief mention of the 140+ local NHRA member tracks, that operate weekly racing events, during their prime time telecasts of the Ashley Force show?

C'mon, the weekly bracket series', member tracks, and NHRA ET Racer's memberships ARE the spiritual AND financial backbone of the NHRA. Can ya throw a bone out for the 140+ tracks that shell out over $2500 a year to fly the NHRA banner? Maybe that would just be too much? Oh yeah, maybe a video clip of a REAL race car (S/S or Stock) that anyone viewing can relate to would be a plus too.

So far, the best exposure of sportsman racing on TV is Pinks. How sad is that?

C'mon NHRA, GIVE A LITTLE BACK!!!!

WHAT ABOUT TWO-WHEEL SAFETY?

This may be nit-picking, but if John Force is so concerned about safety, why does he race up and down the return road with one hand on his scooter handlebars, and no helmet?

APPLES AND ORANGES

I hope the Goodguys didn't pay too much for your SAME DAY COVERAGE of the March Meet that turned out to be DAY AFTER coverage. Thank God for Drag Race Central! I enjoy your site and read it almost daily but this was a big disappointment to me...

Brad, we’re sorry you didn’t get exactly what you wanted, but we are a magazine, not a ticker tape. As you know from all of our race reports, we go out of our way not to run round-by-round race reports. Our motto is “drag racing from a different perspective” and that’s what we offer our readers -- photos and information they won’t find anywhere else. We think there is room in the drag racing world for both the live round-by-round coverage as well as coverage that offers more behind the scenes information and photography. We were short-handed at the event, with one person unable to attend the event and therefore Darr Hawthorne handed all writing, posting and photo coordination chores. For one person, we think he did a great job under very stressful circumstances. Evidently others (over 9,800!) liked what we provided, as we had our largest number of unique visitors ever for a Sunday.

Here's What's New!
