How are they getting away with not following NHRA rules at these races. I think that when you sign up for the race it states that you must pass NHRA tech.

Last night they said that they were taking a 32 car field that ran between 9.6 and 9.8.

I don't think any of the drivers had gloves, neck braces, or pants and I don't remember seeing any full cages.

I guess it's because the NHRA doesn't sanction "Pinks" events (Thank God.:rolleyes:.....But I'm sure they'll get around to it. It could be the only way they'll get regular TV coverage.:D)

Obviously, the bald guy in the small T-shirt can do whatever pops into his pointed head.:confused:

Oh yeah, safety doesn't have any place on Pinks, crashes are good for ratings, right???

Look at the one where Baldy high-sided his bike, I watched THAT one a few times!!

I just hope none of the racers get hurt or worse for Rich's ratings.

Dan,

From what I witnessed, it depended on who you got. The big guy teched me and was rather thorough. He was also at the booth on one of the runs checking to see if some were going too fast, like our friend in the old Comet...

I'm outa here, see you tomorrow?

I've done an Arm Drop event and they put us through an NHRA tech inspection.
