You should let us know when you're running. Been years since I went to a drag strip. Used to run my car at 75/80. RIP 75/80!

Summer of 1966, I was a 6 year old kid playing at a roadside park. Guy pulls in with a front motored fueler on an open trailer. He took the time to answer a million questions from a 6 year old and let me sit behind the wheel. I've been a gearhead ever since. Raced on and off for several years. Last racecar I had was an alky injected altered. I miss that car. I love the smell of nitro in the morning.

I'm surprised you don't run at one of the Nostalgia Drag events. Not sure if there are any in your area or not. Still, it has to be a thrill to start 'er up for a cackle-fest event. Neat. Now that I live within 4-5 hours of a National event, we've attended the "Gator Nationals" the past two years. They had their "50th Annual" a little over a month ago. Pretty big deal for the NHRA and the track. They brought back some of the legends of the sport - Garlits, Shirley, Prudomme, W.J. and 4 more. Unfortunately, as so often happens at these types of anniversary events, they had them match racing ... wait for it ..... wait for it .... in new Toyota Camrys! That was about as exciting as watching paint dry. Good to see them all though.

Two weeks later we attended the NSRA Southeast Nationals event in Tampa at the fair grounds. I always enjoy looking at the street rods, customs, and every other 'genre' of car/truck they have there. There were some really high dollar resto-mods being exhibited. My first time at that event as there's always a conflict with bike week Daytona - this year we did the 4 wheel thing. The wonderful part of it for me is that my GF actually enjoys doing both car and bike events. Winner, winner, chicken dinner!
