Check.
Man, I swore that was him, but I've slept since then. I remember well that Billy got in and out of that hauler a couple times. I was waiting for him to back in and I was going to just walk through, but I kept hearing people yelling and jawing at him. The reflection on the truck is where they all were standing including Bob. They weren't helping him and making him get out to see where he was going. Billy (smiling the whole time) didn't come out between the haulers on the second or third time walking back there and Bob finally came walking out to back it in, also with a smile.

Of all the things that's on Bobs mind and having to back it in could have pissed alot of owner/drivers off, but not good ol' Bob .

They were all having a good time with it all and that's what made the pic(s) special for me. That's when the crew guy came walking out from the haulers next to him and was walking towards the commotion. It was a great moment you stumble upon at the drags.

Its part of the uniqueness of the sport to witness such things early in the week. Especially now when the "stars" just fly in.

Is that the HEAD tennis equipment company? Why were they sponsoring a funny car?

^ May be tennis, but looks like mostly athletic apparel. The back of the hauler might give some extra clues as there's 3 different logos



Only in for a year then left and team broke up soon after. I always thought they had one the best paint schemes to this day

^ thanks slug, I think it is the same company. Looks like they were promoting a shirt division. Very unique sponsor for racing.
