The latest update as of August 24, 2023

Project 'Catch-Up" launches

After more than two weeks of "radio silence", we're back in action at Northern Thunder. A combination of circumstances conspired to keep me away from the keyboard until today, but we've got four full weeks of uninterrupted time to get things rolling here again. First up is to complete the Nightfire Nationals coverage, then start filling in the blanks (lack of captions and details) for the last few Funny Car Chaos races.

While that is happening, we've got incoming photos, courtesy of "Big" Bob Snyder" from this weekend's first East Coast FCC event at Maryland International Raceway (Budds Creek, MD), followed by next weekend's 6th annual Funny Car Chaos event at (Smokin') Mo-Kan Dragway (Asbury, MO). We're not sure if Bob will fly home from Maryland, then drive back to Missouri, but in any event, the plan is for him to cover both races for Northern Thunder.

And on that same Labor Day weekend, there's a rather big race happening in Clermont, IN. It's the 69th annual Dodge Power Brokers NHRA U.S. Nationals at Lucas Oil Indianapolis Raceway Park. That's quite a mouthful of titles for what is usually just shortened to "Indy". We're taking a special interest in that race this year as our Colorado correspondent, Dale Fackler will be on hand to (hopefully) provide some great photos from a truly iconic event.

That's all for this morning; now it's time to get to work on those Boise photos. Stay tuned!
