I thought it was Vancil piloting, Romine as the crew chief and V&H owning the bike?

^^ Been my Experience that TF is getting more and more expensive.  And the average "customer" won't pay for it... A few cry about not having it...but even fewer are willing to pay more for them!
In My world Anyway!!!
BTW when you see a Street Tire bike without a bar go 160 MPH in the 8's...it is pretty Friggin Cool too!!!!
Watching a Top Fueler that does 8's???? Not so much!!!!!

That AMRA Outlaw Street class is probably my favorite class. The things Greg Dahl is doing with those bikes is nothing short of amazing.

Usually I ask if I can ride it.
I don't think I want to ride that one, it's a bit intimidating.

Just being a wise ass, I would never seriously ask to ride another's bike. My comment on that one was more directed to the fact that the sound of it scares the hell out of me.

I have to check to see if they are anywhere close to me. Do you know if the nitro bikes are coming to Brainard this year with the NHRA?

Prostock Motorcycle for sure. There'll be some good racing. Brainard is in the points schedule and known to be a good track to set records on. Book accommodations ahead and maybe at a spot a short ride from town.

In some posts from last year, it said the nitro bikes weren't going to be at tracks with the Pro Stock motorcycles, but I thought I saw they are at some tracks together this year. I hope so, it would be fun to see them at Brainard.
KD, I have a friend with a cabin near there, and his father-in-law gets greatly discounted tickets, it's only a couple hours away from home, so we take a long weekend and ride up there (the long way, taking about 12 hours to get there!), ride the area quite a bit while also going back and forth to the track. My buddy needs it, he doesn't get out much, and it's his therapy weekend to recover from the family duties.
