As tradition, I take my dad out to the LA Roadster show at the LA Fairgrounds in Pomona, CA When we got there this year, the parking staff made us go down the NHRA quarter-mile track from finishing point to starting line in order to get to the back of the parking lot.
Being that we are gearheads, we got the crazy idea of racing down the track when done at the show. Since the track was open, we headed to the starting line and laid down water for a burn out. Then a woman in Dodge Magnum asked if I wanted to race. Of course I said yes and we headed down the track. We were neck and neck halfway, but after that she got the lead. I didn’t expect to win, but it was fun racing down the same track the top fuel dragsters go down.
