I'm thrilled for all of the Kalitta Motorsports family and how they were able to have such a special and positive way to honor Scott!! - Alan Gould

FEEDBACK FRIDAY – BAZE - HYPOCRISY ABOUNDS

FEEDBACK ARTICLE: BAZE - HYPOCRISY ABOUNDS

09_09_2009_bazemoreI really do not claim to be an authority on peoples lives. Especially if I don't know them. This being said could there possibly be a bigger pair of lying back stabbing hypocrites in the sport than the pedrogon brothers. "small p" My only guess would be the producers at ESPN. Tony didn't mind getting all the benefits at JFR. - Mark F. Price

 

FEEDBACK FRIDAY – UP FRONT: THE MESS THAT IS THE NATIONAL HOT ROD ASSOCIATION

FEEDBACK ARTICLE: UP FRONT: THE MESS THAT IS THE NATIONAL HOT ROD ASSOCIATION

08_24_2009_asher_upfront.jpgThe problems at NHRA have nothing to do with the racers, it has everything to do with the two politicians at the top (Tom Compton and Graham Light) with no personal oars in water except for sucking large paychecks out of the organization and whatever else is being stuck in their back pockets.  The sooner those two quit, or are forced out, the better for all of us that truly love drag racing. - Jason Bonham

If you are not an ethnic American it is hard for you to understand why Tony proudly made his comments.  I'd like to comment on the person that brought up the "hyphens" among Americans.  No Latino, person of African decent, Indian, Asian or persons of color came up with the "hyphens".  Americans of African decent did not come up with the rule that says if you have 1% of African blood running through your veins that you are Black.  Brush up on your American history and you find out where the "hyphens" and labels came from. - Marc A. Powe

 

FEEDBACK FRIDAY – SUSAN WADE: LET'S FIX A FLAWED COUNTDOWN

FEEDBACK ARTICLE:   LET'S FIX A FLAWED COUNTDOWN

10_01_2009_wade_on_countdownI think the NHRA did the right thing by going to the countdown. Every ball or hockey sport does the same thing its called the playoffs. I think all the winers need to shut up and play ball. If your the best you got to play your best down the stretch. - Tony Pezzino

FEEDBACK FRIDAY – AS WE SEE IT: THE ADRL AND ITS GROWING PAINS

 

FEEDBACK ARTICLE: AS WE SEE IT: THE ADRL AND ITS GROWING PAINS  
7-29-2008_adrl_pains.jpgI have been going to drag races 45+ years NHRA, IHRA, ADRL and by far the ADRL is the BEST show around.

NHRA and IHRA are doomed if they don't change there ways. Just look at the grandstands which sanctioning body has stanging room only (ADRL)at the races and which ones are 30%-40% full (NHRA IHRA). The Fans know why can't the other sanctioning bodys see it! - Tom Jordan

FEEDBACK FRIDAY – SCHUMACHER NO LONGER HOLDS BACK

 

FEEDBACK ARTICLE: SCHUMACHER NO LONGER HOLDS BACK   

08_06_2009_schumacher.jpgExcellent article. I'm not a tuner by any stretch of anyone's imagination, but I've been a hardcore fan for 44 years now, and the talk about how the Army team was basically doomed to suck because Alan Johnson had left was just plain screwy. Same with the people that think Mike Green will be lost if AJ does some new tweaks to his tuneup for 2010 and "renders" Green's black book obsolete. Give me a break! - Bill Huseth

Tony is full of himself, they are using AJ play book they could not run the way they do before him. They use his fuel pumps heads and parts. You are doing good so far this year but you know you have to thank AJ still. - Craig Stevens

FEEDBACK FRIDAY – SUSAN WADE: DRAG RACING NEEDS A PROMOTER IN A BAD WAY

FEEDBACK ARTICLE: SUSAN WADE: DRAG RACING NEEDS A PROMOTER IN A BAD WAY

Amen!! We have been talking about this for years but who is listening?  I hope someone, it could save our sport. - JoAnne Vincent-Reynolds

This Might be a little late for when you wrote your article,  but did you read the story about the Parade of Power that Bruton Smith did in the up town streets of Charlotte on Wednesday the the 5th?  Thats one very good way you promote a race.  They were promoting the Lowes NASCAR race and the zMAX NHRA race, both in the fall.  What a very good way to get the peoples attention.  And when Doug Herbert fired up his top fuel car,  If that didn't get people to notice,  then they were dead.  What a promoter.  Bruton is hired.  Just my toughts. - Rick Mitchell
