LET'S GET THIS PARTY STARTED ALREADY!
Don't ya just love the International Hot Rod Association? The Quizter shore does, if for no other reason than they aren't the National Hot Rod Association. Have they just been damned by faint praise? Hardly, as the Quizter values variety in all walks of life, even drag racing. IHRA does, however, wait a good long spell to begin each new season, whilst the Westerners are well under way by now. Fear not, the IHRA lid-lifter at San Antonio is almost at hand, so here's a quick five Q's to chew on. Reference the 2006 San Antonio season opener and get to work.
