Congrats to you both and I would have loved to be there to witness drag week. Play is it safe.... at least on the first race! You know that we would like to see wheels up in the air, roofs flying off, loooooong smoking burnouts and all that stuff  Cheesy

Such sleepers! Love the sleeper look and 500WHP, which is 500FWHP on gasoline as we all know  Cheesy

Very, very impressive! Best of luck and I hope your clutches and tranny's hold out for the week!

Richie is already well on his way, I'm loading up the trailer tonight and heading out early tomorrow.  The event is usually streamed live on either Hot Rod Magazine's YouTube channel, or on MotorTrendOnDemand.

Here's a compilation I put together of my passes for the week during HRDW 2017.

Then have a cup of tea, log on and report to us here at The Lounge. Not too much to ask for is it  Grin

Good Luck Steve and I hope the weather is as good as it was 2 years ago.
And remember, anything more than a 9 will get a "NEIN" from me  Grin
I've subscribed to MotorTrend for a while now and my diary next week has only jobs booked in for the morning  Tongue

Thanks Steve!!
