The Popularity of the NHRA

Written by Richard A. Brink

    It isrepparttar Christmas holiday weekend,repparttar 102721 family is sitting aroundrepparttar 102722 livingroom discussing how much of a very fine meal we've eaten, whenrepparttar 102723 conversation shifts: "You on forrepparttar 102724 drag races this summer?" I asked my brother. "Oh yeah," he answers back. As we reminisce aboutrepparttar 102725 past years NHRA Nationals and discuss plans and dates for this years race, we wonder whyrepparttar 102726 NHRA does not have a bigger following. If you like fast cars, and you have not been to a NHRA Nationals event, you have no idea what your missing. That, we decided, is exactlyrepparttar 102727 problem. You have got to see it live to understand why it hasrepparttar 102728 following it does. Television is at fault, after-all this sport has many timesrepparttar 102729 horsepower of NASCAR,repparttar 102730 pitts are open to anyone with a ticket, andrepparttar 102731 drivers come out ofrepparttar 102732 haulers just to sign autographs on a regular basis. They even give you a free, glossy team photo to getrepparttar 102733 autograph signed on. The problem is none of that comes across on TV. When you watch NASCAR they televise repparttar 102734 pre-race activities,repparttar 102735 on-track activities, andrepparttar 102736 post-race activities. They even have a segment called CRANK IT UP, in whichrepparttar 102737 anouncers dont say a word for a few laps so you can litterally blow your speakers apart with your surround sound. This helps give yourepparttar 102738 feeling you are atrepparttar 102739 track. You could be watching your first NASCAR event and byrepparttar 102740 end ofrepparttar 102741 race come away withrepparttar 102742 feeling you understand it, and more importatly you will feel like you knowrepparttar 102743 drivers. I dont want to take anything away from NASCAR; it is a great motorsport and they have done a fine job of marketing to get to this point. But (and it is a big but) there is no feeling inrepparttar 102744 world like two top fuel dragsters coming offrepparttar 102745 line simultaneously; it will shake your soul. Trying to explain this feeling to someone who has never experienced it is futile. Nor can you explainrepparttar 102746 smells ofrepparttar 102747 track,repparttar 102748 smoking tires,repparttar 102749 rubber dust inrepparttar 102750 air, orrepparttar 102751 way your eyes burn fromrepparttar 102752 half-burnt alcohol sprayed from repparttar 102753 firey pipes. The sound...absolutely deafening.
