 I'm already there... in the north that is...not racing but I would like to take the the trip east to epping for the drags.  I have never been able to figure out NED's schedule for the bike drags.

Make sure to go early. On NHRA weekend the traffic is horrible getting into the track, the roads just are not able to handle that many vehicles once a year. You can hear them run when your sitting in traffic on 101 but it is no place to watch from.  :wink:

 222 miles an hour .... whew !   Seemed warmer than 80F..very exciting..I have not been to any type of racing since I was a kid. My uncle used to take me to motorcycle hill climbs..He used to run an indian up the hills in the late 40s - early 50s..Before he lost a bunch of fingers ripping logs into boards at te mill.
Lane    Driver    Class    Dial In    RT    60 FT    330 FT    660 FT    660 FT MPH    1000 FT    ET    MPH    Ov/Un
Left    Jay Turner    TFH    --    .039    1.150    2.896    4.228    185.66    5.394    6.487    191.57    --
Right    Doug Vancil WIN    TFH    --    .046    1.088    2.791    4.132    187.13    5.297    6.283    222.44    --

3:14 p.m. Weather conditions: air temperature 80 degrees, relative humidity 39 percent, barometer 30.30 inches, adjusted altitude 1,463 feet, track temperature 134 degrees. 
Turner was quicker at the tree but Vancil got by him before they reached 60 feet. Vancil continued to pull away on the track and crossed the finish line first to take his third win.

222 miles per hour? That is seriously screaming down the track.
No wonder Pro Stock doesn't want them at the same events.
