I race SCCA in an SRF. Although it has been a few years since I was active.

I watch F1 as often as I can. I have attended races at Watkins Glen (in the old days), Hungary (Budapest), Canada (Montreal), and Turkey last Istanbul F1 weekend). I even had breakfast with Bernie in Budapest. At least in the same room as Bernie. Also Red Bull team stays in Marriott, so have been in the hotel with the 3 times.

I will watch most any racing when I have the time.

Nitromethane (explosive like a bomb 11,000 plus horsepower supercharged), methanol, super high octane racing gas, nitrous oxide. Supercharged, turbocharged, injected, normally aspirated. 330 plus miles per hour etc. Everybody stands up with their hats off for the national anthem (not like the pathetic disrespectful NFL). A skydiver usually jumps out of a plane with the USA flag on Sunday before eliminations start. Now that is REAL USA. Real patriotism not like the phony NFL.
Used to drag race a lot at the now defunct Capitol Raceway and York US 30, closed years ago. Now I'm into RC drag racing. Much more affordable, fun and no injuries if you crash your car. And yes, MOPARs RULE!!!

Funny Car runs ~ 1.5s to 1.6s, (132 ft., 1/10 qtr mi), The Challenger and Superbird are brand new and as yet untested. We'll find out in the spring. Both are bracket cars and should be fairly quick. Both have simulated header flames and engine sound and Superbird has simulated NITROUS system!!!

What kind of longevity do you typically see in SRF engines? Are you rebuilding every season? The idea of sealed engine/trans is appealing to me.

I have gone to a few events over the years. I hit the Baltimore Grand Prix the last year that it was here. I also hit the Red Bull Global RallyCross the last year that it was in DC. Had a good time at both. I went to the NHRA Mopar Nationals at Maple Grove and learned that I do not enjoy standing anywhere near a Top Fuel car when it fires up in the pits. Much better from the stands.




We are looking for something to go to this year. Thinking about the Jefferson 500 at Summit Raceway or possibly the White Rose Hill Climb in Jefferson, PA.

Used to have a dirt midget 20+ years ago put together a drag car a couple years to have fun with. Helped with some Pikes Peak hill climb cars a long time ago, Always wanted to run Pikes Peak when it was gravel doesn't seem the same since they paved it.

Chili Bowl is on MAVTV tonight at 8:30 one of my favorites.
