Hit the fast forward button and we now find ourselves nearly halfway through the 2016 NHRA Mello Yello season. This week's tour stop at Bristol will be the 11th of 24 events on the calendar, and the third week of a string of four consecutive race weekends. And before we know it, the second half of the season will kick off at Chicago's Route 66 Raceway. Following that, we've got the Western Swing, then it's Indy, and then the countdown to the championship begins. Where does the time go?
This drag racing season will be a very short one for myself as the only event I'm (almost) certain to attend at this point is the NHRA Lucas National Open at Mission Raceway next month. Even next week's IHRA (remember them?) Nitro Jam race at Grand Bend, Ontario, has been erased from my calendar as much more pressing matters are keeping me close to home that weekend. What about Seattle? While I've tried to attend the Northwest Nationals every year, this year's event might be one that I miss, again due to circumstances.
We will try to keep current on what's happening in drag racing and bring you the viewpoints that made this site a factor nearly two decades ago, but the enemy as always is time, as in just not enough of it available to devote to the sport of drag racing. Next update as soon as there is a little bit of that precious commodity to spare.
PS: You might notice a new button on the left-hand side of the page. It's a link to what may well be my new home on Vancouver Island. So far, it's just in the planning stages, but in a very few days it could become a reality. If you want to see what a brand-new waterfront community looks like on the southern tip of the island, click away.
