Conditions were a little tricky this past weekend at Bandimere, as you noted. That's a fairly common scenario at that high-altitude track.

There is a razor-thin margin of error, so they either go fast, or have issues.

Anyway, things are getting busy here in the pit at Sonoma. Hopefully the overall performance of the Fuel teams, will be better for the fans.

Makes sense to me.

Why would anyone blow a engine in preliminary rounds and lose millions of dollars in revenue in lost sponsorship and earnings?

My opinion is this. By not racing at 100% full bore 100% of the time showcases the drivers overall skill thus to win takes a more complete driver. This is a complete balancing act on the driver and crew that really underscores the knowledge, skill, and ability of all aspects of racing.

Of course there going to differing opinions.

i know iam beating the horse. sorry. but when 70% of the runs are a fail to race. SOMETHING is wrong. the only reason i posted this again is that its all most EVERY race. course when you own half the car at the track you DO have a chance to do good.

They are over regulated for safety. They cannot risk a death on TV.

Thank the lawyers...

Over-regulated for safety?? You're kidding, right? NHRA is one of the most dangerous 4-wheeled motorsports, the NHRA people have blatantly ignored MAJOR safety concerns for years. WAY too much redneck engineering in NHRA, and far too many closed minds to accept any constructive criticism.

OK, what would you change?

I did get a chuckle out of the "redneck engineering" comment, though.

That one WAS good for a laugh, eh?

C'mon, really? Redneck? The faster classes feature some truly cutting edge engineering, expensive machine work, and are held to extremely high standards by safety regs and more.

He must have been thinking of "Test and Tune" night at the local strip...

i might be telling my age. but i remember when they found out the nitro fumes was knocking drivers out. mid-50s? in the late 60s the ONLY rules was safety. not to slow the car down. and i think NHRA is a bit like the gestapo. like you ONLY can use ONE certin brand of nitro.....???????
