I visited an NHRA even a few years back. Access in the pits, the crews and drivers were terrific ambassadors for their sport. Saw the test fire in the pits, burned my eyes!. Went to the starting line and watched the launch and felt the Thunder (VGG Quote). ... more »

While a valid and correct response, I offer a variance of that. Imagine if cars had to be hand cranked, you had to retard the timing and adjust the fuel mixture. There sure would be a lot of people walking around talking on cell phones! Always an upside!!! ... more »

I started using RMATV several years back. Like how they supported Baggett and other riders. I mostly deal in the relics and pre-historic iron. Their web site was good to help identify parts, order of installation and learn what was/was not available. ... more »

A good example of American Patriotism is on display by the US Olympic teams. Embarrassing to me.
