Hundreds of cars. Well over five hundred race cars descended upon Las Vegas Motor Speedway on Wednesday to come slug it out at the Spring Fling Million, and they slugged it out all day long. There’s door cars aplenty for all door car fans, but what stunned me were the amount of rails that showed up to run. I took over from Chad right on time for the first round of dragsters and if I didn’t know better, I’d swear that it took hours just to run the one class. HOURS. I’m not bitching, either. It is killer to see one class of cars packed like that, filling the lanes. Hearing the announcers making calls to the lanes with the words, “I’m almost afraid to do this…” because the substantially large staging lanes here at LVMS had dragsters packed in like sardines in the little tin warms my dark little heart. Seeing a front-engined dragster slugging it out against rear-engined units is great. Seeing the broad spectrum is drivers trying to chop the tree down and trying to make the driver in the other lane stumble with bracket racing fun is bitchin’.
And the best part of it all? There’s another three days of this, prizes and all!
