I began going to AHRA events in the early 70's. Things were quite different then. 1500 horsepower was the oft quoted figure for fuel motors then. Now, it's 10,000 horsepower. Now, they're racing the track. Track conditions change greatly with tempera

It's so the CAMERAS can read them better. Cameras for stop-lights; cams for toll-lanes; and especially the squad-cars that can now scan plates every-where within visual distance- welcome to GO1984.
