Thumbs up Cool display at NHRA

The boy and I went to the NHRA finals yesterday at Pomona. Needless to say, when a Top Fuel Dragster or Funny Car thunders past you, it's impossible to describe the feeling as your whole body vibrates.

Harley-Davidson had a really fun display. Two VRods were mounted next to each other on dynos. Race fans could sign up and get selected to drag race the Vrods on the dynos complete with ETs and top speed.

It was totally free and a neat promotion by H-D.

The only-other thing I've seen that's "MORE" than a Top Fuel car is that "Shockwave" Peterbilt-Truck-Thing with three jet engines mounted on the back of it (and Top Fuel is WAAAY faster - like by 100mph). Even (single) jet dragsters got nothin' on a Top Fuel.

And the Harley thing - the absolute BEST sportbike night in this area is sponsored by the local H-D dealer, complete with "Dyno Drags" and a "Twisty Time-Trials Course", Demo rides, food, - the Works. They go All-Out.

I've seen the Shockwave a few times at the Miramar air show. We just went a few weeks ago.

J. Purient Burns had - years and years ago, when he was but a pup - a story about seeing his first he-man drag race. Said it put him on the road to where he ended up. Which was a bike mag, at least back then.
