Very true. Last weekends races were probably the best I've seen in awhile though, a lot of side by side runs. IF the fuelers ran that way all the time it would be awesome, but it's not likely to happen. Pro stock classes, be off a hundreth on the launch and you've lost, ALWAYS exciting. How many classes are there where 1st qualifier and 16th qualifier may be seperated by only a couple of hundreths? Myself, I wouldn't be able to tell if a top fueler was running 330 mph at the finish line or 300 or probably even less, without being told how fast they were going. I HATE seeing these cars wreck, leave that to Nascar. Dan
