Greetings ORD fans around the world! Time for a little show and tell at this years BIR Lucas Oil Full Throttle NHRA Nationals in Brainerd Minnesota two weeks ago!
This is the motorsports event of the year in the great north woods, and one I always attend with my trusty and knowledgeable sidekick “Cuda500” (a.k.a. Warren). Rather than give you a boring list of names of winners and losers from a sport that I realize many of you have no knowledge of, I’ll just caption the following pictures for you.
Well, I hope I wasn’t too brief and that you all enjoyed the pictures. I can’t show you what happened each every night after the races, but drinking adult beverages was high on the list.
Man, I would love to get the chance to drive one of those, well except for the Super Comp ones, doesn’t seem like much sport in that!
You are right about the night life too, the parties are the best part about races, IMHO 🙂
Yes indeed, a fun time had by all! As for driving a car with 8,000hp, uh, nah, I think I’ll leave the death machines to the pro’s. lol
As you can see, unlike other high end motorsports, you can get right up close and personal with the cars and the drivers, a somewhat unique advantage for fans of drag racing. Through the years drag racing has always had this element of grass roots fan access, and have never forgotten where they came from, and how important close contact with the fans really is.
