    All I can do is respect your decision. And donate to Carl. And buy a shirt if there is such a thing.

  2. I think we all knew a cancellation was inevitable, I know you and many others are disappointed but taking the advice of the professionals during this pandemic is the right thing to do.

    The Hamb Drags, like every other show or activity will resume next year, hopefully bigger & better! HRP

    You probably should marry her first, then introduce us. She could very easily change her mind.

    On a brighter note, WZ JUNK won't beat me this year.

    When I mentioned T-Shirts in post #6, I was just wondering if they were on the shelf ready to go. It's as important to support Ryan as it is to support Carl and MoKan. If the shirts happen, I'm in for one or two, for the drags that aren't happening.

    Pre-order so @Ryan doesn't end up with a bunch of unsold stock on the shelf.

    Limited edition, signed and numbered by Ryan (and Carl?). I'd even be willing to bid on #1.

    Make it happen!

    Haha. I totally dig the art. Typography needs some work... but the art is ON point.

    Jasper County started blowing up with cases about two weeks ago, and I knew then that this was coming. It's a good call, even though it sucks to make it. Next year!

    As far as t-shirts go... I'm in. I have not bought a single tee all year. The coffers are full.:D

  19. I’d be down for a shirt or two. Please put the art on the back. We stout guys don’t need something on the front to call attention to the old tool shed. Good call on the cancellation, I’m afraid this thing will get worse before it gets better.

    Well that sucks but if enough of us rathole the money for next year it should be a good one. I'm in for a 3x shirt.

    I guess we could label this year’s event “The Lost Drag Race”. (With apologies to Lions.)

    Great artwork. I'm a guy with stick figure art skills, so I'm always in awe of someone with the chops to create something like this.

    Not to turn this into a contest but this popped in my head for a caption so I thought I'd throw it out there.

    "2020 Red-lighted, what a drag!"

    I kind of got caught in the middle of this... I've talked to two different doctors in Joplin. One of them told me the hospitals are empty and everything is normal. Another told me their isolation units are at 100% capacity and if you extrapolate the current numbers, their ICU beds will be full by late July and they will be running short on staff before that.

    For the past two months, I've been getting 30-day models from a well known epidemiologist that also happens to be a car guy and a HAMBer. Sadly, he doesn't want credit because he fears the political backlash that many people attach to science these days. Regardless, here's an email I got from him on June 1:

    He then goes on to explain how last year's registration list, travel, social distancing probabilities, etc... would likely effect Joplin's curve. This was my first report from the guy, I'm not a scientist, and... well, I didn't put all my eggs in that basket. I decided to wait for the next 30 day model.

    But even before I got that model, everything he said was going to happen, happened...and almost on the exact dates his model predicted. Austin blew up, Joplin starts to blow up, etc... I am now a believer...

    What scares me though is something he said on the last update:

    I agreed to post that in return for all the work he did for me. I appreciate him more than I can say... and appreciate his passion for helping folks even more. That being said, I'm out of the Covid update business as of today.

    I'll see y'all next year at the drags.
