      Did they have to pay admission to the grandstand? Were the concession stands open? is an event t-shirt available?

        Dude!!! Events shirts would rule. When I die, will you guys put on a big drag race, cruise me down the quarter, and drink beer while wearing a shirt that says "Chad's Last Drag Race" or some such thing?

        That would rule.

          Guess that's a better send-off than the usual methods.......may the tech lines be short and the track conditions prime where he's headed.

            Creamate me, pack me in a chute, and dump me at the stripe at 2 bills......

                A friend of mine in Colorado did the ashes in the chutes deal for a local racer. They had ashes in the chutes of their dragster and roadster and ran down together to the top end and simultaneously put out the laundry. Pretty cool ideas both of them.

                  If I recall right Kong Jackson got the parachute treatment at Bonneville. I don't know the details or speed though.

                    Man, it must be the rain or the cold or something, but I got a little emotional watching that.

                          ARS Promotions was renting the track and they told us that day when we showed up that there would be a funeral coming through. When we rent the track we have a spectator free admission policy and sometimes 3-400 people show up on Friday afternoon.
                          The procession came through at a time when were waiting for the track to dry so there was no harm in paying our respects. The funeral received a lot of press in the Chi/Milw are on TV as a way to send a loved on off on the final journey. And yes the concessions we open. The t-shirts were free to the racers and a DVD of the event will also be free to anyone who payed to race. We eventually were rained out and will have a Race Day Restart on the 16Th of October so if you are in the Chicago/ Milwaukee area come for some FREE racing and world class's Track concessions.

                            Can we bury you at the TRACK?
