Written by Richard A. Brink

Continued from page 1

    If we could somehow get these sights and sounds through our TV's,repparttar NHRA would explode with popularity. "Maybe they should send out bag of rubber dust and a candle that smells like burnt rubber before each broadcast," we quipped.

    In reality,repparttar 102721 biggest thing I see that can be done is for television to help us get to knowrepparttar 102722 drivers andtheir crews. Evenrepparttar 102723 World Poker Tour understands they can't just show you people playing cards. We have to feel as if these drivers are our friends. Introduce us to their world! We must be able to connect with them on a personal level. Show us what it takes to go 300mph in less than five seconds! The crews can tear down an engine and put it back together in less than an hour. Show us that! Dont talk whilerepparttar 102724 rockets thunder downrepparttar 102725 track. Let us blow our speakers! It will never takerepparttar 102726 place of being atrepparttar 102727 track, but it would go a long way in bringingrepparttar 102728 NHRA back torepparttar 102729 fore-front ofrepparttar 102730 racing world.

    Do yourself a favor,repparttar 102731 next timerepparttar 102732 NHRA is in your neighborhood, GO. Take your kids, call some friends, or go by yourself; just go. There is no experience like it inrepparttar 102733 world, at least not yet. Maybe someday soon, when we can board a rocket bound forrepparttar 102734 moon,repparttar 102735 NHRA might have competition. Until that day comes you owe it to yourself to take in an event.
