    Nice shots, Number four shows some of how much torque gets delivered to the drive wheels in those top fuel dragsters

    Thanks. Those tires also expand to almost five feet high in a blink of an eye. Number four is a split second before the tire expanded fully,

    Yeah, enough torque is delivered to those tires that the rim literally turns for a fraction of a second before the tire even begins to rotate.

    Yep, Maple Grove. Toyo Nationals this past August. Lebanon, eh? I have much family in Annville and Lebanon. Remember B&H Frozen Pizza? That was my grandfather.

    Great shots, I go to the southern nationals down here in the south almost every year.

    Small world, I lived in Lancaster for about 10 years and in fact my folks are still living up there.

    Wow awesome series. I'm not a drag fan, but these pictures make me wonder why.

    I go to many NHRA events and they are all great. The St. Louis event is my least favorite however with the U.S. Nationals in Indianapolis being by far the best. Recently I've gone to some AMA Prostar events (all motorcycle drags). These are great fun.
