Burk, you are right. There are a lot of different ways to enjoy Nitro racing.
I went to my first Winternationals in 1962. Gave up my reserved seats in 2010. Only went Thursday and Friday this year. Haven’t missed an NHRA big show in Vegas since they started having them. I ain't going this year. I’m going to the Rockabilly show in May.
The last race I missed at the Texas race in Dallas. Shelly Anderson went 326 MPH, fastest ever at that time. I'm going to my first DRO Funny Car race in Kennedale this year instead. But I will be in Boise again as I think they have the best drag strip around. Went to March Meet for the first time in 1964. I'll be there. Hot Rod Reunion, wouldn't miss it.
Hated to see Irwindale and San Diego not having street racers a place to go is MURDER, these guys are going to race on the street. See Ya at the Nostalgic Stuff.
El Cajon, California
I grew up in SoCal between the San Gabriel and Pomona drag strips and still race. That is why it so sad to see what has happened to my state.
The greedy municipalities make it impossible to run a profitable business and the liberal laws allow some crybaby to shut these tracks down.
Burk, watched the March Meet online, pretty cool.
The good, cool cars running flat out. The bad oil downs. I don't miss those in current NHRA racing.
Delays gave me time to go out and pick up dinner between Top Fuel and Funny Car finals.
