The latest update as of July 31, 2023

52nd annual Nightfire Nationals


It's just a few days before the action starts at Eagle, Idaho's iconic Firebird Raceway. There's going to be a full - or overflowing - field of Nostalgia Top Fuel Dragsters and Funny Cars on hand, plus the dinosaurs of dragdom, the AA/Fuel Altereds. Throw in a host of supporting categories, and it will truly be an event to remember. And we're going to be there, bringing full coverage of the race from the pits, the starting line, and all points between. We won't be arriving at the track until Friday morning, thereby missing the open test session on Thursday, but we'll hit the ground running when we do come through the gates.

Our first posting will be Friday evening, followed by updates late on Saturday and Sunday. Full coverage will start being posted next Tuesday and will likely take a week to complete. That's a week of Northern Thunder TIME, which may be "slightly" longer than a week of actual time. And as always, stay tuned for updates.

Before we leave for the Nightfires, we're hoping to post photos and descriptions from the latest FUNNY CAR CHAOS race, the 60th anniversary special event that finished Saturday night at Albuquerque Dragway. Some great racing was provided by three full fields of floppers, with the track e.t. and speed records being shattered in every qualifying session and throughout eliminations. There were three photographers (Bob and Ginger Snyder and Dale Fackler) representing this website on site, so we'll have heaps of photos to go with the details we picked up from the FLOracing broadcast.
