I have been a fan since before back in the day. I wonder if Bill France Jr. and some of his rednecks bought into the NHRA....as they also now have "the race" at the end of the season. It wasn't broke.....the points system was fine before the last 2 years. I hope other racing series do not copy cat the NASCRAP point system. Good to see Force doing well....he should just retire and manage Ashley's career.....he has nothing to prove. I can't believe Angelle will be riding a Buell!! Good to see someone else win Pro Stock besides Anderson or Line. Pedragon will not repeat as Funny champ....same for Schumacher in Top Fuel. Too bad they catered to the Buell and Harley in bike class. You almost have to have one to win anymore.

Totaly agree with you on the points the new system sucks but it also makes the fans come to the last race to see who will be the champ before it was warped up in some classes with 3-4 races left And i remember when the Harly's and Buell's were barely doin 8's

I like me some NHRA! I've been to Pomona California's Winter Nationals a few times over the years. As a spectator I think it is by far the most intense form of on road racing.

Ill give you one reason force stays in the car. LOVE. This is his life. Once drag racing gets in you blood like that its hard to get out. No hes got nothin to prove. Its alot esayer and funner for him to make a pass down the track then to worry about ashley hitting the wall.....again

To ad to his worries he just had both his daughters get there Alchol Dragster Lisences. Could you imagine if all three his daughters were in a funny car at thesame time. Forget about getting killied in a crash hell have a heart attack evry time one of them leaves thi starting line.

To be poltitcally correct the alchol (funny car and Dragster) are not pro they are still sportsman. And going to what i said before i was just makeing a point that force is more likly to die of worring then dieing in a wreck......But after what he just survied that man is like superman

I love NHRA!!!! I have been to the raceways in Reading Pa and Columbus Ohio. The earth shakes when the Top Fuel and Funny Car light'em up!

I met John Force (back in the day), Big Daddy Don Garlits, Don "the snake" Prudome, Joe Amato, Bruce Allen, Darell Gywnn, and Kenny Berstein etc etc

If you've never been to an event, I suggest that you go!!

That was a good start to the new season last Sunday. The Force camp looked strong. I can't believe Dave Connely does not have a ride this year after what he did last year.
