Well that's interesting. Exclude the race fans and have a big money private race at one of the best tracks in the South-East. A great way to encourage fan participation for the drag racing industry. Well done Sir.

It is an interesting concept....where the front gate is accessed with a $9.95 live stream ticket. https://tickets.thefoat.com/DuckXPro...s/event-34644/

In any event, here's more on the race.....

221!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Can you believe 221mph on radials. in the 1/8. with no friggen wheelie bar.

Apparently he was "slow" to 60. That would be explained by taking the extra bump on the box.

Literally my favorite car out there right now.

I saw an update on Soldridge, broken wrist, couple broken fingers and a broken hand. Impressive considering the impact.

I have no idea if Micke, or anyone else is using electronic TC... If so, it doesn't matter to me.

Electronics are the new dawn of a different type of awesome drag racing.
My son is in his 40's and we used to go to the Gators together annually.
We went back for the first time in about 10 years.
It was fun and he agreed the nitro classes are still awesome, but overall he prefers radial racing.

Electronics is doing what indoor plumbing did to the outhouse building industry.
Yes, there are still port-a-potty's at every drag strip.
But some people are starting to pick a different throne.

If they could just get all the people on the starting line to line up at the restrooms...
