    NHRA Drag Racing - Charlotte

    The NHRA drag racing series is in Charlotte this weekend, and I spent Friday at the track - all of 3 miles from my place.

    One of the unique things about this NHRA event at Charlotte is the 4-wide format. This is the only event on the tour running dragsters four-wide - even the fall Charlotte round is normal two wide racing. For Sunday eliminations, the first two cars across the line advance, until final round winner.







    Pro Stock driver Vincent Nobile is making a name for himself in the series. At age 22, he has 8 event wins in three full time seasons. Like me, he's a Long Island native, and I used to work with his aunt when I was at Newsday. I had a chance to talk with Vincent and his father (a veteran Pro Stock driver himself, that's him near the left front wheel) between qualifying rounds. Really nice people.





    One of the neat things about NHRA events is the access you get - the "pits" are part of the spectator area, and you can get up close to the teams working on their cars.
