Sik97bird and I made it last year but this year I've got to work. I sure wish I could go this year!

Have fun. You're in for a treat! They're going to run them on all four lanes simultaneously!

For the first time in NHRA history, modern Top Fuel dragsters and Funny Cars will race four-wide, unleashing a powerful assault of 28,000 horsepower on the Bellagio of drag strips, zMAX Dragway on Sunday, Sept. 20. In what is sure to be a must-see demonstration of the ultimate in high-horsepower performance, four NHRA Top Fuel dragsters and four NHRA Funny Cars will race in a four-wide configuration during separate races in a special exhibition event just prior to the final round of the NHRA Carolinas Nationals.

Here's some pictures I took last year.






Mods? Yea, I got mods ...
Air silencer delete, warp drive, dilithium crystals, flux capacitor, Slingshot Rubber band power adder, Moonshine & Gas, Leaf Blower Supercharger, Hamster Wheel & Hamster, Energizer Bunny generating 1.21 gigawatts, Mr. FusionŽ Home Energy Reactor, hover conversion and a sextant celestial navigation system (The original GPS)
Best 1/4: 1,320 nanoseconds @ 670,616,629.2 miles per hour

Well...one out of three ain't bad. I usually shoot one car and two ladies myself! Hey I may be old, but I'm not dead!

Even if you fall on your face, you're still moving forward.
