Sorry BP. I'm done with it, will not post again. Actually I'm sorry I even started it. Lock it, delete it, whatever you want.

Drag Racing will survive in spite of NHRA, I hope. It always has and it always will. NHRA Drag Racing is such a miniscule proportion of the sport that it barely affects the remainder. Overdriv(E), let me know why I can buy one of those " text condescension detectors "; I wanna try one to see if the...

He hit it right, everyone was focusing on the dive he took and the trouble it caused and hardly anyone payed any attention to Ashley's win. Media and people, fans or not will always seem to focus on the negative. After watching the interview, I didn't come away thinking John Force cleared anything u...

Things seem different when you put them in perspective! Since I compared taking a dive to splitting a round, no one seems inclined to offer a differing opinion!!! I've watched all week for someone to come back at me over that one but it hasn't happened. Think before you argue, it might make you see...

With all do respect to all involved in this conversation, splitting a win or what ever you call it at a local event and all past dives, falls, or what ever it may have been in the past by whoever, big name racer or obscure local hero, does not and did not have the negative impact on the sport as the...

I know it's been going on since the '60s 'cause that's when I saw it first! You know what made me madder than anything? Mike Dunn. That was just too much mouth on NATIONAL TV. He should have kept his opinion to himself. His job is to tell what is going on, not tell everyone how pissed he was becaus...

All I can do is laugh and shake my head at those who refer to " new lows ". This stuff is older than most of the people complaining about it . What I'm referring to is just a few days old, and it's a new low to me. You sound like you think it's ok. With all due respect, if you can remember back that...

Although I avoid these conversations like the plague, I'm obligated to make a point. When this topic is raised, it always includes the phrase, " new lows ". Traditionally, somebody will reply that the same tactics were used in 2005, 2000, 1995, 1990, etc. I find it absolutely hilarious that nobody ...

I think you guys have missed my point. When ever it's as blatantly obvious as JFR on Monday or admitted to as when KJ held up his "I still got a job" sign. It really lowers our sport to new lows. In my opinion of course. As much as I respect John Force for what he has accomplished, I have to respect...

Defend JFR all you want but I'm saying it's hurting the sport. I had a first time national event attendee with me at the US Nationals. I had explained how the countdown works so he knew what was going on with Robert Hight needing one more round to get in the top 10. When they came up to race, he sai...
