Boy, it was some kind of race day on Sunday at the US Nationals. Everyone was wondering if it would feel like the US Nationals, if it would have that intensity and that craziness. Well, it did. You are going to watch the final rounds from the four Mello Yello series professional categories but the road to get to these finals was insanity. Shawn Langdon and Justin Ashley engaged in a pedaling battle for the decades in the semis and racers like Erica Enders had themselves banner days with some luck thrown in as well. It was really an incredible, if shorter US Nationals that consisted of nearly 900 cars on the grounds and epic competition from top to bottom.
In these finals we’ll see Langdon just absolutely bring the fastball to the starting line against Leah. We’ll see Jack Beckman double bulb JR Todd, intentionally or not. We’ll see Erica Enders do what she does as one of the greatest pro stock competitors of all time, and we’ll see Scotty Pollacheck get his first NHRA National event win in his 12th final round attempt. Incredible.
Was the US Nationals different? Yes but it was absolutely the same where it counted. In action and emotion!
