Labor Day for drag race fans there's only
one place to be --
Clermont, Indiana at a track called I.R.P.
And for the teams that race here the reason
that they come
They can't say that they've done it all unless
they've won this one.
One thing everyone knows -- when you come
here five days to race
Bring plenty of parts, run every session,
and make sure you don't make a mistake
'Cause everyone that competes here knows this
is the big test.
To win the U.S. Nationals you gotta beat the
Another thing, remember and keep it on your
Think of all the great competitors that ran
at this track and crossed that finish line.
So Monday after the anthem and two cars on
the line ready to race
The starter picks up the control box, goes
over and takes his place,
Then he nods to the crew chiefs and says Start
And this is it, first round, first pair, and
you hear the starter's whine,
Then the motors come to life and the fans
begin to cheer;
You're about to find out why the U.S. Nationals
has lasted for fifty years.
