    Hello everyone.

    I am a member of a skyscraper forum and new members (or user name change) must provide a delicious food recipe, so here it goes:
    Sweet Pickles (family recipe):
    6 cups sugar
    1 1/2 cups water
    1 cup white vinegar
    1 gal. Vlassic Kosher pickles

    Bring sugar, water, and vinegar to a boil to dissolve sugar. Cool. Rinse pickles in cool water. Slice round (like for hamburgers) and sprinkle with alum as slicing. Pour vinegar/sugar mixture over sliced pickles and put into jar. Close lids tight and refrigerate.

    Hello all you drag racers and fans! I joined this forum to educate myself. My hubby is a long time follower of the sport. I've made it my business to learn all that I can. As a result I enjoy the sport more then I would have ever imagined! Competition Plus offers way more information then the other sites I have hit up. Thanks for all the work you put into this site!!

    Got a pm from Willie to introduce myself. Found this site while trying to gain more knowlege about NHRA pro categories. I am usually a short poster, but this first one will be kinda long. My screenname, "placebo", is because dragracing and boating make me feel better.:p I hang out on a couple of boating sites, RDP and Performance boats but drag race talk gets buried pretty quick on those sites. In fact I saw one screenname from here, that is a member at those sites. I have a goal to visit every venue starting with the ones that host PSM. So far I have attended Indy last weekend, Vegas, Pomona(year JF got his 15th), and Phoenix several times. I live in Tucson, AZ and got my first taste at a test and tune here when the pros still came. FC is my favorite class and JFR is favorite team, I know, I just alienated some of you.:D Also I cheer for whoever is in the other lane against G Anderson, he is probably reading this.:eek: I like S.Torrence in TF, K. Stoffer and the Hectors in PSM. That should be enough to get some responses. Look forward to thrashing with everyone here.:cool:

    Hello all, new member here, my dad ran junior stockers back in the late sixties, I was partners in a 9 sec. bracket Vega for a while, crewed on my buddies 7 sec. Top Sportsman car (until he crashed it!) and currently crew on another friends 32' Bantam Altered that we run in Top Dragster. Hope to get back behind the wheel again someday!...$$$:)

    Hello everyone, I'm new here. I've been a drag racing fan since the early 80's when my dad took me over to Indy for my first US Nationals race. Been hooked ever since. I'm just a fan, I don't have any practical knowledge or experience in racing but I just really enjoy all elements of drag racing from the super stocks to Top Fuel. I'm looking forward to enjoying the forum!

    I'm Barry, worked on a AA/Fuel front motor dragster in the 60's, bracket raced in the 70's, now I race Offshore Power Boats, but drag racing is still in my blood, especially the fuel cars.

    My name is Jeffrey. First thank Willy for helping me get on this forum. Drag racing is totally new to me, never been to an event. It draws my attention because I want to build extremely light car and find that drag race vehicles have light components. I will start shooting out questions once I find the doors and ways of this forum.

    Hi all, my name is Frank.

    New to the forum, but definitely not new to drag racing. I started going to the track when I was very young and helped my dad every week for years. Even started Jr racing myself when I was 10.

    Haven't been to the track in a few years, but now that my daughters are getting close to the age where they may I enjoy it, I hope to take them and maybe get one of them involved.

    I've noticed that a number of people talk from experience. I'd be curious to see the real names behind the screen names. I'll have to browse through this thread more soon.

    Hi all, another drag racing fan here. I've only been really following the sport for a few years. I've been to my local bracket track a good number of times, then finally decided to go to a NHRA National event( Norwalk 2011). Now I'm really hooked, the cars, the noise, the people, just everything about it. Last year I was able to go to Charlotte for the 4-wide race. This year, I'm going to try to go to Charlotte in April and Reading in October. I'm here because I also enjoy the behind the scenes news and the history of drag racing.
