May 1, 2000 -- Happy May, everyone! Our Drag Racing Story of the Day consists of the complete results of the NHRA race at Richmond this weekend. Thanks to all the people who wrote with words of support on my "pit notes." I appreciate it. 

Oh, another thing -- WE HAVE UPDATED LISTS!!! Yes, we finally got the lists processed and up on the net. They are all fresh, except that this being drag racing, they are already obsolete! That's the nature of the beast, I guess. If you sent a recent update and it is not in the lists yet, you can be sure we are working on it. Don't be afraid to drop us another line, however, just to be safe. 

We still don't have the banner ads working right, and that calls for drastic action. I intend to write off the money spent on the current solution and find something better, with a target of tonight.

Thanks to Bruce and Pattie Mullins and the crew for their hospitality this weekend. See you all later! bp
