May 19, 2002 - The Drag Racing List Goes Over FIVE MILLION HITS! That's right, gang. Sometime in the late, late hours of Mother's Day 2002, Draglist.com eclipsed the five million hit mark. More than five million times since April 1996, a drag racer or fan has displayed a page at Draglist.com! It's sure been a fun ride.

There are two asterisks to put next to that five million hit number, however. Asterisk one: for the first four years of our existence, we only tracked the hits coming through the front page. We've come to find out that many readers enter through other Draglist.com pages. In fact, just about as many readers enter the site through the Photo of the Day and Classifieds pages as do those who enter from the front page! For the first four years, none of those people were tracked, so despite our OFFICIAL five million page view number, the actual number is probably way higher than that.

Asterisk two: our incredible growth over the past year! Draglist.com is on track to receive four to five million page views in 2002 ALONE! Thanks to all our readers. And thanks to our amazing volunteers who help to record the history of the world fastest men and women. To steal Don Ewald's phrase, "We do it for love." It's incredibly gratifying to have all of you share our passion for drag racing. Happy Mother's Day, indeed! Bill Pratt
