Goodbye Sweet Charlotte....

If it's Monday, then I must be on the road west to Dallas and the next event on my NHRA national event tour. Of course that's in a perfect world, and mine has been far from perfect lately. Starting with the camera breaking down in Indianapolis, to dropping the new one and breaking my only lens in Rockingham, and now car trouble in Charlotte. It never rains... it just snows on me.

Instead of being on the road to Mobile, Alabama, I'm sitting at Keffer Dodge in Charlotte, North Carolina, waiting for the technicians to finish putting in new rear axle seals. Not a big job, eh? Just don't ask how much it's costing. There is no alternative, unless you consider hitchhiking across North America in the 21st century as a viable mode of transport.

What about the Pep Boys NHRA Carolina Nationals at zMax Dragway? How did that turn out? After three days of iffy weather and dire forecasts, the sky let loose yesterday afternoon while they were cleaning up the remains of a crashed Pro Stock car (driver uninjured), and that put a merciful end to an ill-fated event. The balance of eliminations (they got the 1st round of Top Fuel and Funny Car completed and half a round of Pro Stock) will be completed during qualifying on Friday and Saturday at the Texas Motorplex during the AAA Texas Fall Nationals. Westward ho... once the car comes down off the hoist and I bail it out of "service jail", that is.
