    Isn't Jon Asher always calling for heads to roll ?

      I'd offer this:

      If the NHRA is unsatisfactory to those involved(I'm not really knowledgeable to their operating practices, but from what I've seen...not all that impressed) I'm sure the IHRA and ADRL will/would be more than willing to welcome any "defectors".


      "Countdown to the Championship".....BAH!

        With the terrible air times on ESPN2, and the fact that most of my favorite drivers have lost their rides, I don't think I've watched a whole race broadcast this year. I went and saw the race at Norwalk, but that was because I bought the tickets in January. I don't know if I'll go back next year. I definitely think the top management guys at NHRA are screwing up the sport. They seem really focused on making themselves a lot of money, and I think they've completely lost sight of what's good for the sport, the fans, or the racers. I really hate the countdown too.

        When NHRA coverage is supposed to start at 10 PM Sunday night, and gets preempted for an hour by little league baseball, and the qualifying show runs from 1 to 3 AM, I'd say they're probably not pulling the ratings they need to.

        I'd rather see coverage of the nostalgia top fuel / funny cars.

            IMO it boils down to employee attitude, from top to bottom, with exceptions of course. If you could fill the ranks with people that are race fans themselves, more concerned with good competition than personal convenience, the sport would explode.

              Both those articles were very good reading.

              Never really cared much for Jon Asher's writing, but these articles were very well done.

                    1000ft. racing sucks, the chase sucks and the NHRA sucks.........i basically quit watching when they went to the "chase" format and the '1000 was a kick in the nuts but this year really blows, kinda like NAYCAR........
