August 02-03, 2002 - No, we didn't go weekly. Despite our spotty coverage this week, draglist.com did not go from a daily publication to a weekly. It was a simple matter of the mind being willing, but the body not being able to pull it off. After last week's sleeplessness followed by the Funny Car Reunion, all it seemed I could do this week was go to work, then come home and sleep. I added an extra hour a night and I think I'm back... so hang in there for cool web updates. 

Danny White has sent new lists that cover the first half of the year, Steve Klemetti has sent updated personal bests from the last few national events, and James Morgan has sent between 60-80 photos from the Funny Car Reunion. In addition, Flyin' Phil will be sending more. He's currently in Wisconsin, picking up the new ramp truck transporter for the Nitro Nova. Oh yeah, brother Tim Pratt took dozens of shots and video clips at the FCR that we need to get up here, too. Stand by!!! bp
