kab: Fisty Bum: Too bad he's 9th in points.

I loves me some drag racing.  It's a shame I never catch it on TV anymore.  I used to love watching Joe Amato, Kenny Bernstein et al. with my dad every weekend on TNN when I was a kid.

I dig it as well, even though it breaks every "rule" I have about what racing is :)

If there was ever an event that really absolutely positively HAS to be seen live to appreciate, its drag racing.   Watching the look on someone's face when they see a top fuel car do a tire warm up is priceless.


The cars are still the fastest accelerating vehicles on the planet (0-100mph in less than 1 second), but there is a marked difference in them today with the 90% rule (nitro:methanol) compared to what it was when they could run 100% nitro....to stand on the line between two fuel cars as they leave the line is literally enough to knock you to the ground if you're not expecting it...

Used to do some part time crew work on a couple of funny cars when they would do the west coast stops...at one of the races (Pomona 06-ish?) after Saturday qualifying had wrapped up, they had a charity auction in the pits where all the teams and sponsors showed up....basically just a reason to drink and hangout...one of the best times I ever had at a race was watching John Force and Gary Scelzi get absolutely HAMMERED at that auction and then get into a pissing match to see who could spend the most ungodly amounts of money on the items offered, all the while talking epic trash to each other.  At no point did it get "mean", just two friends busting each others balls and drinking LOTS of beer and Black Velvet...

Nobody finishes a race upside down, backwards, and on fire, like John Force.

*nobody*.

His daughter ain't hard to look at, neither.
