Thats a good point but alot of time when they have problems it when the car hits the sand at a high rate of speed which makes them glyde over the sand all together or the nose digs in and the car goes end over end.

That would not be a good thing to have then they would have more crashes at the top end from that they could lose control and hit the wall or even worse the other car

I said that awhile ago they should make the track owners make the sand traps longer at the tracks that need them. 1000 ft. is ok but 1320 is better

im just glad to know the tony shumacher streak will come to an end!!!!!

What i herd is that nhra has all the intetion of going to 1320. My opinio is that they have to go back in time about 10-15 years and get down to those speeds. those speeds plus the new safty rules would be very very safe
