And have the stunt bike riders jump over all 6 lanes as they pass the 300 ft. cones with roman candles zip tied to the spokes. This might require removing some bleachers though so maybe not.They could use the return roads and go 6 wide
There are a lot of great posts and some deep thought behind them already posted here.
My 2.5 cents. I thought it was different/cool as a novelty deal last season. Having it effect the outcome of the race and points is total BS. I will admit to rarely watching NHRA racing after Indy but did catch this event. I got VERY TIRED of seeing it replayed 50-times. JMO
As far as the racers not hanging it out too far,,,that is crazy. No driver wants to come in 2nd, and HELL NO to coming in 4th!! Again, JMO
Too many people are trying to make it a 3-hour show and go home deal so the people don't get bored. I say, if they are at a drag race and are bored, go play golf and leave our sport alone. They don't have the mental capacity to appreciate what we do here. I believe it is about the racing, bottom line. Now to go along with that, showmanship from the racers is a big part of the racing program. Forcing a days worth of experiences, into a small time window doen't do anybody any favors.
