Default Not So Wonderful

The nitro's have the fire and power but are short on real racing. Getting back to Burgess he needs to be fair and balanced in his writings. But I guess NHRA is pulling his strings.

When people first come to the drags they have NO idea what anything is in drag racing is about, that is so wonderful.

people might get into the other classes more, but that love for nitro never goes away. There's just something so primal about that amount of power that PS and PSB can never achieve even if they do have a higher level of competition. I like PS and PSB a lot, but they'll never take the place of nitro for me.

I've been going to the races and I like pro stock, but as a lover of all things mechanical I'm way more amazed with the power of the nitro cars. Plus my ADD immediately attracts me to large, loud, shiny stuff.

Like I said, I like PS and PSB, but I'd rather watch a nitro warmup that a PS race.

Default Maybe...

Maybe Larry, if the NHRA would stop running the small block format and go to the real engines -- the mountain motors -- then you might have a legit argument.
