    A sad fact indeed that Petty's car killed an 8-year old boy at Southeastern Dragway in Dallas, Georgia on that day.

    Betcha didn't know that prior to the accident, Petty drove that same car to the B/Altered class win at the 1965 NHRA SpringNationals held at Bristol Dragway.

    Guys, I'm taking full credit for completely blowing that one.

    I was rush jobbing stuff last night because my entire house (including me) was getting sick with a wild ass stomach bug.

    100% bone job by yours truly.

    I say the article and BangShift fails for not measuring up.
    Now, now. I enjoy reading articles linked on Bangshift when the MSM reporter gets it wrong. All of us need to know the ways our sport is being distorted by the "legitimate press." So y'all ease up on 'em, ya hear! It's not a "fail" by Bangshift.

    As to whether Busch's first round loss was a "fail," at least it turned out better than when Richard Petty once ran the "Outlawed" 43jr. Plymouth down the 1320 in Dallas, Georgia. http://bump-drafts.com/2009/12/30/th...-the-boycotts/

    I would like to see some more info on his car.

    Cool to see a "big name" racer mingal with the common man, on un-common ground, and not just to berry pick a win.

    I bet every person in that class was honored to have him compete.

    Kurt running the car on Dragweek would be HUGE!

    Kurt did ok. I wish I had been there instead of what I was doing.... I would be ok with going out in the first round even.

    I would love to see him or one of the Nascar guys do Drag Week. That would be cool and increase the PR for the event.

    Now lets see John Force or Tony Schumacher run a Busch Nationwide race.

    Its pretty likely they would go out pretty quickly.

    It didn't quite pay off this past weekend -- Busch's engine misfired a touch on the start of his elimination round -- but hey, it beat hanging around the house and doing honey-do lists.
    This is quite true.

    Wow. For Bangshift to post that attempt as a fail is pretty weak and I'd thought beneath them.

    Here we have an accomplished racer going straightline in a STREET-LEGAL boosted muscle car, qualifies, and makes a decent run without ELECTRONIC BS and they parrot the line that it's a FAILURE...?!!! What gives....? Guys, you can do better. I don't care for NASCRAP anymore, but you guys got to give him kudos for making the passes and trying. I bet everyone else that tries SuperGas for the first time in ANY car makes it past the first round....NOT...!!

    C'mon guys.....get with the program. Next thing ya know you'll be parroting Pelosi. :-)

    Neely vs Busch
    .071 vs .041
    10.006 vs 10.10

    Busch tree'd him but really didn't do too bad overall.

    MOV = 0.064 sec

    Remember, 50% of the competitors are first round losers.
    ;D
