With Drag Week looming large in the not too distant future, some competitors have only a couple days left to get their cars assembled and on the road to Tulsa for opening day. That means the stress level, work level, and intensity really juices up. In garages all over the country, the lights will be burning bright until dawn for many of these intrepid racers, all in the quest to take part in one of the last truly great gearhead adventures intended for regular dudes.
It is not just on the for Drag Week either. At race tracks and in garages all across America this coming weekend projects will be rushed together by dedicated groups of gearhead buddies, race cars will be serviced in record time between rounds, and other lunatics will look at an impossibly hopeless situation and start the snowball rolling with the immortal, “Ya know, I think we can pull this off…” comment.
Whether your thrash ended in triumph, more busted parts, or the simple satisfaction of seeing a car do something you never thought it would a short time ago, they are all memorable and probably some of the most cherished experiences hard core gearheads have.
So, the question of the day is easy. What is the best thrash you’ve ever been involved with?
