Drag Racing is a Wonder
Just Wondering … Can it be true that the NHRA has raised ticket prices for racers and the price of a Top Eliminator Club ticket at Gainesville? If that is true, what the hell are Compton and his management team thinking?
Just Wondering …How much longer can $5,000- to $50,000-to-win bracket racing events continue to be successful? Will this year see a marked decline in entries for those races where the entry fee is often $100 per tech card or more not including buy backs?
Just Wondering …How independent Top Fuel and Funny Car teams are going to survive on $10-12,000 first round loser money even if they just make one qualifying pass and one round of eliminations?
Just Wondering …What were they thinking? Unfortunately for IHRA and ADRL Pro
Just Wondering …If the NHRA was forced to cut back their race schedule, which events would be the first to go? I would bet that national events at NHRA owned tracks would be safe.
Just Wondering …On the same subject, would it really be a bad thing for everyone involved if the NHRA schedule were reduced to, say, 15 races?
Just Wondering …Why doesn’t the NHRA management offer Humpy Wheeler, the legendary ex-promoter of Charlotte Motor Speedway, a consulting job to show them how to make the U.S. Nationals, Winternationals and other historic NHRA races something really special again.
Just Wondering …Did you know that NHRA’s press conference for their season opening Winternationals, the first race of the NHRA’s Full Throttle sponsorship era and a race with a new title rights sponsor attracted none of LA’s TV camera crews and no one from the L.A. Times? Unbelievable!
Just Wondering …Why NHRA broadcasters Paul Page and Mike Dunn seemingly are forced to wear white shirts and ties but the pit reporters aren’t? Are the pit reporters too cool to wear a dress shirt and tie? Or do Page and Dunn really need to?
