Sunday Stills – Controls

I haven’t posted a pic in a while. Mr. Mechanic and I attended Nitro Jam 2010 at Rockingham Dragway last night. Something about watching and feeling cars go 300 mph plus and sitting so close gets your blood pumping. FlxFlyer had to stay home, he wasn’t feeling well this weekend.

They even had side by side Jet Truck racing. Ed, not sure if your cab looks like this, but I’m sure you’d like to have these engines strapped on at times to cut through traffic. By the way, they burn around 160 gallons of fuel during each run. Both trucks had solo runs before they raced. Mr Mechanic and I had a BRILLIANT idea, lets go stand behind them and watch them go down the track. Note the smoke in photo 3, multiply times 2 and you have – what was I thinking? I wasn’t. Bad idea to stand there. You see nothing but SMOKE. Oh well, scratch that from my bucket list. Make sure you click on the photos to make them larger.
