nhra, are you reading this? it's not just about racing. it's an event. do not forget the weather girls.It sucks that you didn't go because you would have loved it. It was a full day of seeing some of the coolest hot rods ever gathered on the west coast lined up for city blocks in each direction from Forces shop. There was great music from different bands including Adrian Force/Hight's band that she was in and they would take turns on the large stage that was setup. There was a lot of food venues set up there including southern California's famous In&Out Burger trailer. Just the smell of nitro, frying burgers, and caramel corn in the air excited me. There were a lot of other vendor booths set up all over the place. You also got to take tours of the JFR shop with Johns brother Louie. You could also go up stairs in the race station and and Kenny Young Blood would do a cool cartoon type drawing of you. I couldn't believe the long autograph lines for all of the racing legends and celebrities. There were so many drag racers and drag racing legends like the Snake/ Mongoose. Plus Celebrity car people like Chip Foose and Jay Leno. Then you could also meet the KCBS southern California weather girls Vera Jimenez and Jackie Johnson. There was a lot more but I already feel like I'm writing a book. The whole thing was for a great charity for kids and you only needed to donate a $10.00 unwrapped toy.
