A day at the (drag) races
Of the little assortment of motorsport activities I had planned during my trip, this was the biggest one. I had seen the event was scheduled and was able to plan around it. So the day tickets went on sale I jumped online and secured a seat to the Mac Tools 50th US Drag Racing Nationals.
I was a fan of the drags before I got caught up in circuit racing and flagmarshaling all those years ago, and I was pretty excited about seeing it on a big scale: lots of top fuellers and huge crowds!
My seat was under sunshine and blue skies and opposite the start line.
It was a great day and I was so glad I made the effort to go.
