Default Siren Nationals - Drag Racing Inside

Hey, just thought you guys would enjoy this. Had a lot of fun this weekend running down the strip in my Pontiac! If anyone here is from the Wisconsin/Minnesota area, come check it out this fall! I think the second event is September 21st.

I don't think many in here that follow Drag Racing. This is likely due to the fact that there are no good looking women in the sport.

Gave it a look and saw lots of nice cars in there but does the stupid music ever stop?

Does "No Prep Drag Racing" mean no track prep or no safety prep? There are a lot of people just waiting for a good "Crowd Plow" when a car gets loose with no guard rails.

No prep is track prep.

You must have missed the blonde putting some fuel in the blower scoop of the white nova a couple of minutes in. Think she qualifies... haha.

Yep. It stops after 90 seconds or so. If you use copy written music on YouTube the audio can be pulled against your will, and rightfully so. There's a reason nobody uses radio songs in videos..........

Good point, but I meant racers. Have you ever met a good looking Female Drag Racer before? I rest my case!

Looks like a fun way to spend a day. I have not been a religious follower of drag racing, but I do enjoy watching the cars run down the track.

Rick, Rick, Rick. You gotta get off the meds now. I'm sure the hip is doing better by this time. Have you seen any of the women in Top Fuel, Funny Car, and Pro Motorcycle? When you heal up, go see an NHRA sponsored drag race. And take picture or two.

Happy to report...that the Meds are still strong and I may have to do that some day....go check out a race...you know someday. In the mean time I googled some images of images of the Women of the NHRA to see what I was missing. This schmucks photography keeps coming up, looks like a pretty good gig...I wonder how he gets that close? He probably did a lot of photoshop on these chicks though...

Those chicks probably think he's a little pervy following them around all day taking pics of them.

I found a video of this Creeper Photographer and apparently he does impromptu interviews prior to events and he is terrible. ...and this Driver...Megan something or other her last name is...really needs to work on her interview answers as well!

Just watch that little girl look at that big man. Methinks there's a little crush building there.

I think she now has a restraining order against him... and he should just stick to photography.

I really like Megan she is such a sweetheart and just overall a totally badazz chick. Hunts with a bow, fishes, drives 4 wheelers in the back country and of course one of the best drag racers out there ... and can look killer in a dress with some of most photographic eyes you have ever seen.... Ummm that is the word on the street though...you know from her photographer. Guy is likely a total dick!
