Saturday Qualifying

It started out as a pretty gloomy day, but the rain stayed away and the sun eventually came out, by the end of the day. Fast Jack Beckmen, did back up his 3.989 from yesterday and now owns the national record in Funny Car. Cruz Pedregon also joined Jack in the 3 second club with a 3.997.

Tom just had to go harass poor Erica Enders.

Jeez, he got in a lot of my photo's.

Dave Grubnic has a chance to break the ET record in Top Fuel, if he can back up his 3.728, tomorrow.

The Safety Safari Crew.

Friday Qualifying

It was nice to see a tribute to Bill Grumpy Jenkins this weekend at the race. The Grump, passed away this year.

This is Dan Paige, a local New England racer. There were a lot of racers from New England here this weekend.

Nice hat!

Tom, checking out the new Harley's.

We had passes to all three of Don Schumacker's hospitality tents this Friday. Free food and drinks!

Bob Tasca, another New Englander.

Great 80 degree temps and sunny skies today. I got to see my first 3 second Funny Car run by Fast Jack Beckman. If he can back it up today, it will be a new national record.
