They kept hyping the "4wide" as history being made. I have heard positive and negative comments about getting away from the standard 2 wide.

It is the first time I have been. It is not something that I would typically go to - by Brother-in-law got the tickets for my Christmas present. I actually had a good time.

John Force won and his daughter Ashley came in second. For all you "eye candy" guys who have heard about Danica, go to Google Images and search on Ashley Force........

How do they divide up the lanes in 4-wide?

8000 HP?! I had no idea they were that crazy.

I thought it might be fun to watch on TV, but drag racing is intensely boring if you're not there.


They used to hover right about 6000HP and were limited to 500 CID when I was in the game a decade or so ago. It wouldn’t surprise me if they’ve been able to squeeze out another 25%. I never did build anything that would burn nitro, but did build a few pro-mods in the 700 CID / 2000HP range that ran on alcohol. Drive a sub 10 second car down the track once and you’ll forever be hooked on drag racing. Nothing quite like it and you’ll never appreciate just how much skill / talent it takes to keep that dam thing straight until you do. My first attempt was on a country road out in the middle of Texas. I immediately launched the car off the road, through a fence, over an arigation ditch and about half way through a field of ready to harvest alfalfa. Wasn’t any graceful way of sneaking away from that one……

This thread has been on topic for a long time. Tagging on to Dean's comments, I went to the NHRA "4 Wide" top fuel drag races last Saturday in Charlotte. I had never been to a drag race before - and of course, they start with the lesser horsepower stuff first. I was not prepared for the Top Fuel boys & women when they came out. Each "car" "rocket" puts out 8,000 hp. At 4 wide the effect was nothing short of incredible. I am sure that there was some "stuff" in the 13 hz and below range here. To further heighten the effect, we stood at the start line - you could actually get quite close - when the light went green, the result was nothing short of indescribable. I am sure that either my eyeballs or my optic nerve vibrated as the entire scene sort of pixelated. I did not puke, BTW but I did utter a few expletives.


I use to go to the drag races when the top fuel cars were in town when I was a teenager. I can smell the rubber and nitro when I think back on it. I remember that it is hard to watch anything slower than Pro Stock once you have seen the top fuel cars.

Oh, I'm sure it's a blast to drive (lesser to be there, but still!), but watching it on TV doesn't do it for me.

I worked with a fellow who tried oval track racing and said it was a lot of fun, too, but watching that type of racing is for curing insomnia, imho ;\)

Oh, I like oval racing, at least when it comes to Indycars. Well, as long as there's overtaking.

There were 2 lanes together then a concrete wall divider and lanes 3 & 4 together.
