    Kalitta tweeted earlier today that they will be announcing "some excellent news about one of their mates" tomorrow. I take it that someone from down under will be announced as the driver for the second Kalitta TF dragster... Could it possibly be Richie Crampton ;)

    I really wish we would call it something else besides 'silly season'. silly season is a term coined by nascar followers. Drag racing needs its own term for off season antics. how about 'wacky' season or 'crazy' season :)

    The "4 wide Nationals" will now be known as the "4 x 8 Nationals" with 4 - two passenger Top Fuelers going against each other....as soon as Larry Dixon can get the NHRA to go along with it.....:rolleyes:

    You know, years ago John Boy said he seen Elvis at 1000'. I think he knew way back then that the suits would de-nut the fuelers... o_O

    Force went by the "1000 Foot Club" on fire hence the term....Elvis was in the stands cheering him on that day.
    If you don't think that's possible, I can at least prove he was at the Hershey AACA swap meet a few years ago looking at the cars for sale in the Car Corral...

    Thin Elvis or Heavy Elvis, take your pick
