    Just got back from the drags today at the local race track.

    Got a picture of me and my favorite driver. John Force. Notice my Molon Labe hat?

    He put it down the track today at 318 mph @ 4.85 sec. Now thats cooking.

    Oh yea, I passed up shooting the new 30-06 today for this. Well worth it!!

    Very, very cool, Lennyjoe! I've always liked John Force, he is the ultimate AA type personality in his sport. :) Just once, I would love to feel the acceleration that he feels on a daily basis in his Funny Cars. I doubt that he ever tires of it.

    Did he wear the cap on the ride or did it just go along for the ride?

    Ditto: Very Cool Indeed.

    When younger (secretly still do) always wanted to be a Top Fuel Pilot; not insane enough to want to drive a Funny Car.
    5000+ hp motor between your legs in a short wheel base:eek: :eek: :eek:

    Gotta love the SWEET smell of nitromethane in the morning.

    Force is the man in Top Fuel Funny Car. Those cars haul. Something you have to experience to believe.

    I do believe it was a good decision to go.

    Mom in law is here this weekend so I wont be able to go again tomorrow. Gotta do the tourist thing.

    Range visit is scheduled for Monday.

    Gonna go out to Tucson Gun club at 3 points and do some shooting.

    Mom's gonna have to spend Monday with her daughter. ;)
