You know that old saying that "time flies" well that is so true. I was sitting here thinking about what to write and I was just amazed that since my last blog Ashley Force got her first nation win in funny car, John Force made his 500th event and his 999th round win and they where already at their next event. Well the qualifying rounds are over and Tim Wilkerson has once again nabbed the pole. We will have to see how the chips land tomorrow.
I listened to the races on NHRA.com which are in Madison, IL but I really wanted to be there. You know its only 7 or 8 hours away from here, and that's close for a national event. Well, hopefully next year we will have things going strong here at dragracingheaven.com and can take some time off to go to at least 4 or 5 of the nationals and lots of local events.
The store seems so empty now that the jr. dragster and Scott's drag sled are gone. I just want to say thank you to Myron and Henning Racing for letting us display them for the last few months. It was cool to see the look on kids faces when they see them and I already have people stopping in asking about them and where they are. I hope we can get some more display cars or something in here again soon.
If you or someone you know has something that we could display let me know. I did get something super cool from a guy that used to work for NHRA back in the 70's the other day. It's the decal of the National Hot Rod Association Street Division at the top of this blog. He said he would give it to me if I would keep it, and of course I said "they will have to pry it from my cold dead hands". I have found a coat patch to match it and plan to put them and some other things together in a NHRA wall hanging for the store.
Well, I gotta go.
See ya at the track,
