Well there are plenty of you that don’t like to hear this, and I am sure some will be upset by me saying it, the fact is that races being scheduled on the same weekend are unavoidable, and the are NOT bad for the sport of drag racing.
Now before you call me crazy for stating that the second half of the season is about to kick off and we are almost to Labor Day Weekend, let me explain.
For years we in the drag racing community have spent our days looking towards certain classes and what the future holds. Yet, at the same time we have neglected to pay attention to some of the most exciting classes in all of drag racing.
We have entered the second week of July and what I keep hearing is “what am I going to do next season?” Fact is, if you are a racer that is looking to obtain marketing partners for the 2019 season, you are slowly running out of time.
The Snap On Tools backed Cruz Pedregon team is looking to get back on track this weekend in Bristol and the Thunder Valley Nationals.
If you have been involved in the industry that is drag racing long enough, there are times that you start to wonder “what does the future of drag racing look like?” Well I believe that I saw just that a few weeks ago in St. Louis.
If there was any question about that, it may have finally been answered this weekend in Martin, MI during the PDRA event, when yet again only three cars showed up to contest the Pro Extreme. So, does this mean that it’s time to move on? I think the answer is yes.
We have all heard the Musi name once or twice in drag racing circles. Whether it be Pat Musi and the days of Pro Street, or Lizzy Musi and he ability to wheel a pro mod. This weekend though, it was all about Tricia Musi.
We have all heard of the last week or so the complaints about the track prep that NHRA is doing. Has anyone taken the time to really think about this and look at the positive affect this can have?
During Outlaw Street Car Reunion V at Beech Bend last weekend, we saw yet again the ToothJerker break its own leaf spring record with Lyle Barnett behind the wheel. Has the record gotten to the point that no one will ever catch them?
In a move that didn't surprise most, Tyler Crossnoe decided to take his famed Outlaw Street Car Reunion further east and land in Bowling Green Kentucky. The week that Tyler and most of the racing community has been waiting for is now upon us.
While a lot of our readers are going to think that I have finally lost my marbles, I will tell you exactly why I think that NHRA is back on the upswing.

Well folks the week is finally upon us. That’s right, it’s time to fire up the NHRA pro mods this weekend in Gainesville. There have been plenty of offseason moves so let’s look at what we can expect.
Today is the age of social media without consequences it appears. No longer do you ever have to answer for the things that you would have only ten years ago said behind closed doors...
It isn't often that a gesture of kindness makes the news when it comes to drag racing. This is a situation where it is well warranted though. The receiver of this anonymous gesture is none other than PDRA Pro Nitrous superstar Jay Cox.
We are here at Orlando Speedworld Dragway for the weekend covering the RPM Warm Up, and the only thing hotter than the temperature are the runs from these pro mods.
In a day and age where we are lead to believe that anything is obtainable, one has to wonder if multi-time Promoter of the Year Donald Long has set the bar too high.

The topic of discussion lately seems to revolve around the No-Prep world and the safety involved, along with the crashes that we have seen lately with that style of drag racing. Is it any more dangerous than any other type of drag racing?
