The latest update as of July 6, 2016

Half the season gone already?

We're just past the halfway point of the calendar year, and starting the second half of the NHRA Mello Yello drag racing season this week. After a gruelling four week stretch of non-stop national events, the Pro teams - at least those that are still standing - got 10 days to regroup and retool before this week's Route 66 Nationals in Joliet. Then it's one more week of "rest" before they head out on the annual death march that's politely called the "Western Swing".

If we had the time to spare, we'd do a quick recap of the first half of the NHRA season, take a quick glance at two major local events from the past month at Mission Raceway, and report on the IHRA Nitro Jam Canadian Nationals at Grand Bend, Ontario. Due to circumstances that had a much higher priority, I gave the IHRA race a miss, and similarly wasn't able to attend either of the Mission races. There is a small sliver of tiresmoke on the horizon however as I'm booked into the IHRA Rocky Mountain Nationals in Edmonton next weekend for what will most likely be the only drag race I attend this year.

For now though it's back to drawing up house plans and looking at the myriad details that go into constructing a waterfront home from scratch. It's going to be almost as much fun - and even more expensive and time-consuming - than building another race car, and infinitely more useful in the long run. As always: stay tuned!
