Now I get it. Thanks for the picture to represent the article. Unfortunately it is not a possibility for us this year. This is not just because of all the hard feelings from last year, but some health issues with our families. The NHRA explained some of the reasons for the massive problems last year, but it is a year late explaining it to the participants and they sugar coated it. Hopefully the "Cacklefest" can be restored to what it was in the future. Only a few of us have the original restored cars (A lot are re-pops) and even then it is a pretty big ticket to come and show and run these things on our own nickle. Between the entry fees, nitro, motorhome parking, period correct push vehicles, food and lodging, it cost us "Geezers" about the same as if we were running a car minus parts attrition. This is a case where the "Clowns" are paying to put on the circus which is doable, but no one wants to feel like a "Red Headed Stepchild". How's that for being politically incorrect? It does look like there is a concerted effort to make this right though.
