Did a Thing

Hey-o guys,

So this past weekend the big dog NHRA guys were in town Fri-Sun. I've been wanting to go for quite awhile now so a few friends and I took the day off work Friday and went to practice/qualifying. First off, the nitro cars are absolutely insane. If you ever have a chance to go watch these cars, DO IT! Quickest passes in the 3.60's@325ish. The feels and sounds of those cars passing is like nothing else I've ever seen or felt. I have no clue how the crews and drivers can be around those daily and now have serious hearing loss/issues. I wore ear protection knowing they were loud..still didn't expect that loud!

Here are some pictures from the day. Not much and they are all from my phone and zooming on a phone isn't the greatest. We sat a little past the 60' mark. Right around where they would do their burnouts to(well where they would stop rolling).

A little Idea of how freakin' massive those tires are.

Awesome, dude!! Idk how I didn't know about this.

I didn't even think of it until I was typing the original post but I would have totally invited you too! Not sure if you would have been able to get off last minute-ish(decided the week of) but if you could have it would have rocked
