I have been going to NHRA national events every year since the 80's. I've been to E-Town, Maple Grove, and Phoenix.

I have been to events that had long delays caused by oil on the track from a fuel car blowing its motor apart. I agree that the delays were no fun and it would be nice if those issues could be eliminated.

But there is a far more sinister threat to a national event. A threat so evil that it actually caused an entire event to be canceled and held at a later date. That fiend was rain.

In all my years of going to races oil-downs have caused maybe 10% of the grief that rain has. Get rid of the rain and you're on to something.
