A Day at the Drag Strip.

Filed under: Uncategorized — Jim @ 6:03 pm




It was hot as hell, and there was no shade to be had. I’m beat, and my cruller is cooked.

Still, it was a great day to have the chance to see our buddy Willie take a few very short Sunday drives at 155 mph in his funny car, which is pictured above.


  1. I’m so farookin’ jealous!! Geeze, I’d love to see me some drag racing. I’ve only ever watched it on the tube. I can imagine the noise, the roar, the smells.

  2. I went to a drag race once. Those transvestites were fast!

  3. I’m with Joan! For that matter I’ve just been watching drag racing tonight on ESPN2 – it’s pretty nice on HD with surround… but nothing at all like being there I’m sure. LOL. Sounds like it was a great day.

  4. Awesomeness! We love funny cars here.

    Every once in a while, we get them rollin’ through and it’s so much fun to go watch them.

    Hmmm, you know, I think I better ask my dad if we have funny car night coming up at one of the big classic car cruises.
