Over the last 20 years drag racing has taken a much different path than most other motorsports. I sit here and ask myself how we actually got here. How did we get to the point where the most important thing in drag racing, to some, is a television show?

Recently I had the pleasure of meeting Mike James and photographing his awesome Procharged 1995 F150 Lightning. Now to be a little honest I fanboy'd a little bit. You see I've known of Mike and his Lightning for almost a decade now as we travel in similar circles.
We caught up with Kevin Fiscus “Flash” fresh off his NMCA Xtreme Pro Mod victory in Joliet at the end of July. Kevin is the reigning PDRA Pro Boost Champion and competes in the NHRA Pro Mod tour. This year Kevin has been on a tear, going to his first ever NHRA National Final, having an amazing showing at the American Outlaws race.
As most of our readers that know E3xtreme know us for our heads up coverage and that is what I personally am used to. Our founder Ellen on the other hand has been to grudge races in the past, whereas I personally never have. So I just want to give you an idea of what to expect and whether going to grudge events is for you.
Everyone that has been involved in drag racing, whether a tuner, driver, owner, crew, or spectator knows that races can and do come down to inches. It's those inches that can mean the win, the money, or even the championship. At Menscer Motorsports they are doing everything possible to make sure that your shocks aren't the thing that costs you those inches
Now I understand why people say what they say, but hear me out. Competition among series is good for the sport of drag racing. It's just as important as cars competing against each other.
That's right folks, as you have already heard, whether it was through rumors or from the mouth itself Larry & Kenny are bring back what was the best drag racing series outside of NHRA. The ADRL (American Drag Racing League) is coming back in full force.
