    I imagine the pilot is just changing his focus from the flagman to where his car is on the track. With that much engine blocking your view do you concentrate on just one edge or if you are somewhere between the stripes when going down the track? Having never even driven on a strip that must just be an insane rush keeping it straight and fast at the same time. -Scrump

    Lots of buzz at Maple Grove last week about JS Drags. Should be a good turn out. Same weekend as Fall Carlisle so you can hit both.

    Yes and no,that is I loved drags at the strip when in Jr.& Highschool,but it got boring after I started to run Oval track stock races. Still enjoy going to the dargs, if there is no oval track races around.

    It's hard to see in these old B&W photos, but he may have "turned on" the "red flag" with this wheels-up launch.:rolleyes:

    You look down the sides as best you can and watch the lines. Once you get used to not seeing out front, you focus more on the car and the engine, not worrying about where the car is going. Your seat will tell you if you get sideways.

    from nowhere...

    We have not missed a Showdown drags yet...
    We NEVER intend to...Its simply the best vibe, best track, best little valley in our season, We will only keep working to bring better, faster, and MORE cars in tow...
    Count on it!
    Everyone who comes to these is straight BITTEN! You'll never want to miss one...
    It has a very special "feel", I guess...
    Its non-chalance rocks...
    I'll most likely be ( at this rate, anyway, unless I get a few things accomplished this week...) car-less, this year, ya' know what?
    I still won't miss it for the world!
