Well, well! I guess you could say that the U.S. Natl's were delayed in many ways. What about that light that Dave put on Erica?
In my comments a few weeks ago I mentioned that Dave Connolly has some great talent and he has been sitting out of Pro Stock for quite a while now. I never thought that his talent would be showcased so soon by giving his teammate a lesson at the tree. People can say what they want about her talent, give anyone enough runs down the track and they can become good at what they do. Dave Connolly scares me when his thoughts are clear and he is determined,; he's a beast.
I learned several years ago at Frank Hawley’s that practice doesn't make you perfect; it makes things become routine, and once something is routine it becomes natural to you and you just do it out of instinct.
Dave, as a driver you are probably the best talent in quite a few years that has come into the Pro Stock class!
The Pro Stock final at Indy was the best drag race that NHRAhas had in years! No team orders! What a change! Then came TF.
The only thing I missed was the Pope coming in on his Popecopter and blessing the winner! Big Daddy did it on less than .000001% of what it cost the Shoes!
Just went to the Funny Car Nationals at US 131 Raceway Park in Martin, Mi, and I have to say I had a ball. The track itself was entirely accessible to anyone and the pits weren't a three-mile walk away. As a matter of fact, the pits were just a couple of hundred feet away from the tower, making it an easy walk for anyone to get in to the pro pits. There were no PR people for the drivers and no multimedia companies for the cars and no hospitality areas taking up a ton of real estate, oh and no interviews with various members of the Force family to waste people's time.
