I’m confused every time I read anything about ADRL, not really sure what to think.
As far as street outlaws, clearly it’s fake. Never saw a street race with temporary lighting towers and fifth wheel trailers lined up .. oh and can’t miss that same yellow guard rail in every race.
NHRA is kinda like Amy Winehouse: everyone saw it coming but nobody could stop the final outcome.

N-N-N-Never had any P-P-P-Problems W-W-W-With it. It It It. When you retire, you can become an Auctioneer. No training needed.
Yessir, gonna go straight to Hell for this shit, ain't I? So what? I sorta doubt they'll put up with the likes of me there either.
All bullshit aside, a blessed New Year to you and the Staff there at Phlegm Central. I really enjoy your little publication, and hope y'all keep it up. It gives me pause to reflect from time to time.
Will someone please instruct the next two contestants to fire the next pair...
C'mon Burk, you gotta know better than that. History is the Empirical Evidence that slowing down a race car is nothing more than idle and expensive talk. Set rear end ratios, shorten the track, regulate the tire size, regulate the RPM, and every time these have been applied it usually lasted about one season and then the next? Back where they were the two years before and then some. I dunno what the answer is, but it sure as hell isn't limiting the imaginations of the car and engine builders.
My best bet is the only way you're gonna get those cars slowed down is get Obama to be the crew chief. He'll slow 'em down in a New York Minute.
On the NHRA's attendance problems? Let twice as many in for half the price. Same amount of money. Go from there.
