Duane, sometimes desperate times require desperate measures ….how many times can a reasonable racer spend the time and $$ only to spin on a **** track. I don’t know who … nolongerracing is….BUT I like his style.

It's been quite a while since I've covered a race and had a chance to listen to conversations in the tower and in staging/starting line areas. I saw this situation maybe 5 or 6 times during all the races I covered.

Different staff back then, but I always heard the same thing - "If you don't want to race, fine. Don't race. There are plenty others who will be happy to take your place."

I firmly believe the NHRA has changed for the worse in the things they believed important, but this is not a recent thing. It should have been solved somehow years ago.

As for the Greg Anderson complaint, I seem to remember it was at Columbus about a very suspect left lane. He got the standard reply until one car ended up on its roof, a couple of others had near misses before anything was done.

nolongerracing has a great idea, but not for him to do,only to suggest someone else to do. Wonder who will chip in to pay the couple thousand dollar fine like I believe David got?

We are done for the day, racing resumes tomorrow. I have mix feelings today about track conditions. They worked on the all morning and into the afternoon. After the Juniors ran, they worked on the track for a good 45 minutes. Dragging and spraying the track. I had my best 60ft of the weekend and the racers I talked to said it was better. The questions is... if they could make the track better today, why couldn't they do it yesterday. Anyway, thanks to the crew for todays track prep.

Some one with some balls.

$2000 fine is cheaper than trying to replace a 75k stocker.


Or we can just complain more that seems to be working.

NHRA could give two ****s what we think!

Stick together and stuff gets done, one person can't change anything. What if everyone would have loaded there cars up and left???

Just more reasons we need to support races like Tyler's, Kens, Bo's,etc

It wouldn’t have mattered if everyone loaded up & left, NHRA got there $$$
when the racers rolled in on Thurs & Friday and payed already.
Probably have to pay online when you enter at some divisional’s too.

That's kind of my point if they keep getting there money why would they change anything. I don't know what the answer is ,but it sure sounds like there is a lot of unhappy people at the races.
