That wasn't even close. My guess would be the 99,000 were drag race fans hoping to get in on the action. The 16.6 million gamblers were just in it to make a buck. I think we are all better off in the long run that it fell through.

What NHRA should do is give Bruton a call and beg him to make another offer. I don't really think they will, but they should.

I'd bet you anything he's already talked to Compton yet today. You could see it in the Charlotte press conference last week.

If I was wagering on it, I'd put a load of dough on that deal being done lickety split.

clwill, i hope you're right, but i have my doubts. If Bruton bought the NHRA the first thing he would want to do would be to put competent people in key positions. That would leave the glendora boys without their cash cow (NHRA) and they would be forced to pick strawberries in the valley.

Why would we want a guy who has only recently got involved with drag racing run it? The man makes beautiful tracks, let him stay at that.

Bruton has more invested in drag racing than even the NHRA itself. I know of no better candidate than he to lead the sport into the future.

Since when has NHRA done anything more than add a couple of suites at any of it's company owned tracks? When was the last time they have done anything to improve the experience for racers or fans? When was the last time NHRA did anything to increase the payout for either pro or sportsman racers?

I think it's time for a real change and i think Bruton is the man that could make the necessary changes happen to better the sport.

Just who do you think is gonna lead change within the current regime?

Larry I think you should re-invest in EE stock or certificates or whatever the hell she and her father were peddling.
