I had given two tickets to our dog's groomer who had a close friend that just loved the races. The groomer got sick, so his friend brought his son along. I always try to get there fairly early so we have a lot of time to walk around the pit area and see the drivers and the cars. Here is Rick and his son about to get John Force's autograph.
And here they are getting Ron Capps autograph. I have never collected autographs from the drivers.
This is Rick's son getting Greg Anderson's autograph. Greg is a past pro-stock champion.
They had a top fuel engine on display with a list of statistics. It is an older display because I believe that they run 10,000 horsepower now.
This is the structure at the beginning of the race track. They bring the cars through that tunnel in the middle into the staging area.
OK, time for some action!! How about some Funny Cars burning out?
And of course the top fuel dragsters. As you can see, my reserved seats are just up from the tree. Directly across the track is the unreseved seats and the TV cameraman.
I took another picture and zoomed in. Click on the the pictures to see them full size. Then you will be able to see much more detail.
