Fans now will enjoy reduced admissions, free entry for children under 12, free Friday entry for active military members, and discounts to NHRA merchandise. Its a great step for the NHRA.
With the gloom and doom of the off-season, its easy to get caught up in the soap box of pointing blame. (Myself Included.) But, Funny Car driver Ron Capps really made a great point:
There can be two ways we can handle the situation. One is that we can all complain about it, say that since there may not be full fields the racing won’t be as good, and that I am gonna stay home, not go to the races I might usually go to, and not watch it on ESPN. The other option is do everything as a drag racing fan to help our sport through these times. Trust me, all motorsports are gonna see tough times, but I think that times like these will define our sport and its fans. -Ron Capps, NAPA Funny Car Driver
