I REALLY love drag racing…

I dig shows like ‘Pinks‘ and ‘Pinks: All Out‘ amateur drivers bringing their home built and often low budget cars to the drag strip and blasting down the 1/4 mile.
But my true love is NHRA Top Fuel and Funny Car racing. I’ve been a car guy all my life. I’ve owned some powerful (if not 1/4 mile) cars, 1968 Toronado, an early 70’s Firebird and even a 1977 Ford LTD Police Interceptor (it was a real cop car!) but nothing I’ve owned or even driven comes close to the eight THOUSAND horsepower monsters these guys drag out to the track week after week.
Count to five, go on… 1, 2, 3, 4, 5… a Top Fuel dragster will have gone from a dead stop to 330+ miles per hour before you hit five. The fastest car ever? 4.497 seconds. Four and a half seconds. Man, that’s got to be one hell of a ride…
