    Thanks for the pics! We're keeping an eye on the weather, the forecast last night looked bleak, but not so bad today.

    One picture, which shows a part of Drag Week which most folks don't get to see. This is the hotel parking lot presentation to Jesse Maddafari, he's a fellow who's been driving his John Deere painted Chevy truck on DW for several years, and he is always late getting to the next track because he was helping half a dozen broke down racers get going again. He's building a new car, but doesn't have the money to get it done. A few of the regulars got together and decided to do something about it...put out the word that they were going to help Jesse, and they collected over $8 grand and a bunch of parts. We presented it to him last night.

    Sorry for the lousy picture, but that's the best I could do.
  9. Can somebody put up the live stream?

    Re: Post #70 above

    A great example of the old school hot rod spirit surviving the onslaught of modern commercialism. Thanks to the folks like these that made this happen there is still hope for the future!

    This is awesome.
  13. Squirrel that is amazing!

    Blasphemi went 8.75 @ 159. Just put a brand new motor in it, for his sake I hope it stays together.

    I believe hot rods website has the live stream link
  14. Live Stream starts at 7:40 ET on Motor Trend on demand, from the best I can tell. Not real easy to find on the web so far.

    Looks like Jim ran a 10.12 - nice run
  28. Heard the Franklin went a 30. Fastest I heard so far was a 6.2 from sick seconds 2.0.

    I heard the route is up 95 then 301 to the Baltimore beltway. Good luck dealing with the traffic gentleman
