Nitro Night 2012 (corrected)
Escondido, California's "Cruisin' Grand" is a weekly car cruise that runs throughout the summer months. Their Grand Finale night of the season has been dedicated to drag racing's history. Vintage drag cars will be fired on nitro and pushed before the crowd. 25 living examples of the quickest and fastest from drag racing's past. Information about "Cruisin' Grand" can be found on their website. It is STRONGLY SUGGESTED that you arrive early for this fan packed event. Cars will begin their static fire ups at 6:00 p.m. Then will stage for the final "fire and push" at 7:30 p.m. One block of fire and nitro that you won't want to miss. Restaurants and stores will be open for your enjoyment as well as the display of some very amazing street and racing vehicles. So bring a chair and watch the dragsters go by. See you there.

Plane vs Car at Northwest Regional Airport in Roanoke Texas
Not my video, all rights go to original photographer (Davis family - Pilot's wife) and WFAA. Just sharing the video. Please read description. I have turned on comments, but please please try to keep it civil. A male diver (Female was the passenger, male was driving SUV) of a black SUV fails to stop at a crossing that is at the very end of the start of the runway at Northwest Regional Airport in Roanoke. The road is marked with STOP and there is a sign to yield to aircraft. Driver does not even slow down or make an attempt to stop and the plane clips the roof. Yes the aircraft was too low on their approach, but this is why the STOP painted on the road is there. Driver claims to not have see the airplane, well you did not even make an attempt to look as you did not stop buddy. This type of crossing is not uncommon in the USA and the airport says they have tried to fix this, but the property owner on the other side will not sell the land to make a new road. I go to this airport often for the Blue Hanger Restaurant and this is where the couple in the SUV was going. I have often had to wait for an airplane to land and always stop, but usually I am on my motorcycle so I can see everything. When I am in my car I will stop, look out the widow and take time to look for air craft. I will also look as I am driving on the road with my window down before the turn where you first see the black SUV on the very left for a brief second at 0:06. I have never had a problem seeing the aircraft from either street. The SUV driver my opinion was not paying attention to their surrounding and should know better as it was reported they often go to the Blue Hanger. Video was provided to all the local TV stations from the Davis family. See video of a plane landing at the same airport from earlier this year that I took. This will show you just how low they can be and why you need to stop and look. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RViyJZ22TGk This is a video to show driving on the frontage road of the runway and the truck in front of the motorcycle stopping to make sure there are no planes landing. (Note start video at 21:00 minutes) http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=eFhmcuIVHOs&t=21m00s Video original link http://www.wfaa.com/news/local/denton/Caught-on-Tape-Roanoake-177177461.htm l Making Roanoke's airport safer for motorists http://www.wfaa.com/news/local/denton/Making-Roanokes-airport-safer-for-mot orists-177370681.html

48-Year Itch!
When the stars line up in front of me, I just have to record it. I have no choice. And this was one of those moments. I don't know if this will ever happen again. I certainly hope it will--and in front of the grandstands at some selected NHRA events. For you see, you just don't see this happening at all-- when you look back at how unlikely it is that the car and the driver would still be around in 2012! Take the driver, Don Prudhomme. How many times did he make full passes in a top fuel dragster or funny car? And for how many years? In short, it's a miracle that he is in one piece, after all that--and he is! Thank goodness! Then the car: The Greer, Black, and Prudhomme dragster, built by Kent Fuller and raced from 1962 through 1964, with the original partners, it ran up an incredible record at southern California tracks of 81 wins and only 8 loses! (According to Phil Burgess) Then lengthened--bought and raced as the "Bonanza" for a while, eventually stripped of it's motor and left sitting for years. Restored by Steve Davis, bought by Bruce Meyer--How likely is it that it would be allowed to join up with "Snake" for this moment? Pretty unlikely--except that it's owner Bruce Meyer, is a good friend of Don's, and after hearing about Rick MacDonald, they gave him the nod to bring the car to the track, and push start it to life. Now the driver could have been someone else....but it wasn't. That's what makes this fire up so significant. And like I said: All we can do is hope that this mind blowing moment will happen again at a track near you. And if you hear they are coming, better "Make the Scene". For the chance may not come again. Like an old legendary cowboy on a white horse in your local parade. And all you need to do is what you did when you were a kid: Sit on the curb and watch him go by. Perfect. :)





Front Engine Dragster built in five months
In December 2009 I got the idea that it would be fun to have a FED so I asked a few questions and read a few threads on the HAMB. After wieghing all the advice and suggestions I bought a set of Mark Williams blue prints and got started. With the help of a good friend or two I had a can the was ready to race at Eagle Field in May 2010.
