Ok Billy .. you asked for it!!!!
First and foremost .. drag racing was the brains of man and car .. NOT ELECTRONICS
. You get these guys now who are computer experts putting chips or whatever into the control boxes, clutches, fuel systems .. let them get back to racing by the seat of their pants. Make it an even playing field for everyone.
Second, there was a place for EVERYONE to race, not just the "PROS". Now it's a three ring circus with the multi-million dollar teams taking up most of the pit space with their "support" vehicles. What they have seem to have forgotten, is guys like you, who keep these tracks open week after week. Without the tracks there would be no NHRA, IHRA or the likes.
Third, and this is personal .. when officials came to us back in the day and told us we could NO longer go to THEIR event and make one shot to qualify and sit out until race day.
Fourth, now you have to get approval for a sponsor on your vehicle. That's hog wash .. they just want to get their hands deeper into the pockets before the racers do.
Fifth, let the tracks control their shows not an organization that might be in that area once a year.
Sixth, get back to the origin of the superiors being .. "Dedicated To Safety"
I'll crawl back under my rock for now ..
Families are like fudge .. mostly sweet with a few NUTZ!!!!
