With all do respect to Antron, his crew, the lady that lost her life, her family and all involved, it was a terrible tragedy.
It should be evident and I'm sure it is, to NHRA that TFD and TFF are both very dangerous classes. It does not matter if you are running 660', 1000' or 1320', things can, do and will continue to go wrong and disasters will happen. These drivers have to know the danger involved and they do. I hope the fans understand the risk they are taking even setting back from the action. If they didn't they ought to know now.
I understand they have put remote shutoffs in the fuel classes now. I think that is an excellent idea. So, can we get back to 1/4 mile drag racing now? Everyone I've talked to understands the problem and the reason behind the 1000' racing, but really does not like the 1000' racing at all. It is just a big exhibition show they try to call competition. NHRA, you're losing fans by the droves.
I know this will probably not be a popular post on this forum as I know most of you are dyed-in-the-wool NHRA, and I know this dead horse has been beaten badly. I love drag racing, watch it on TV every chance I get. I go to at least one race a year. It is not the same. In my opinion.
God Bless Our Troops!
