(Photos by David Whealon) It has been a wet year for NHRA Drag Racing and the Virginia Nationals were no different. Leading up to the race there was a lot of doubt as to whether or not they would even be able to get the event in and the weather forecast looked like racers would go straight into eliminations on Sunday based on points instead of qualifying. Luckily a break in the weather got most classes qualified and the event had more racing action than was expected.
Thanks to our friend David Whealon, who stayed throughout the weekend waiting for breaks in the rain, we’ve got some cool photos to share of all the nitro action. We’ve also got one door car gallery that we’ll be sharing this week, but the first one we’re sharing is all Top Fuel and Funny Cars.
