We've skipped past the usual April Fool's Day antics, and have gone directly into the fourth event, of 24, on this year's NHRA Camping World Drag Racing Series schedule. The NHRA Four-Wide Nationals kicked off yesterday under warm sunny skies at The Strip at Las Vegas Motor Speedway. First day's qualifying results were decent, but with an increase in corrected altitude of nearly ONE MILE from the mineshaft conditions at Gainesville three weeks ago, the performances suffered somewhat. Not drastically, but the Top Fuel cars were running 3.70's instead of 3.60's and Top Alcohol cars were running 5.30's instead of 5.20's, or quicker. Most notably affected were the naturally aspirated Pro Stock cars, with e.t.'s nearly .15 slower than at the Gatornationals.
Today sees two more qualifying sessions for all the fast cars, then three rounds of four-wide eliminations tomorrow. Unfortunately, we don't have our photographer on hand for the event, but we'll follow the action on NHRA.tv and provide some commentary on just how the event is unfolding. Before we get into that, we've posted a synopsis of how the Top Ten racers in Top Fuel and Funny Car are doing so far, and what their prospects are for what promises to be a very interesting and ultra-competitive season of racing. Check it out on the "What's New" page.
