    Whoa! Chad said he wasn't going to be there either. Though Bruab is supposed to be the travelling announcer.
    Escaped on a technicality.

          My guess is hot rod is gonna film and air their own coverage via the YouTube channel. And possibly sell a DVD.

            I heard the speed channel was going to involved this year somehow. Probably has something to do with their contract.

              Crap. So how are the rest of us losers who can't be there going to find out what's going on? Man, I was looking forward to the day to day coverage.

                      The guys that truly put Drag Week on the map(1320 Video/BangShift) and now that their is a possibility of this thing being huge its worth it for the powers to be to actually make an effort to give it some internet coverage. Thats quite disappointing to hear, I know Kyle has a real job and the video stuff is just a passion. Why not have those guys comeout and still provide coverage under the Hot Rod umbrella.

                            I get it, I run a business. I would just hope there would be a good way to still involve those folks. Just like they do with the photographers that they buy pictures from for articles. The guys like Chad and Kyle get the real meat of the race. You can feel the passion they have for the event just talking to them or listening to their interviews. I can tell you as a spectator I felt like I was there between the coverage by 1320/BankgShift. I can't speak for last year because I was doing the event .

                              Chad and Kyle will be missed. Did my first DW in 2009, about 115 cars, very small group. It felt like a family event. DW has now gotin big, almost too big. It is what it is, and there is nothing like DW out there. I still plan on running DW for years to come. Guess we will see if this change is for the good or not.
