    Kool man. That looked like North West of town. Was that Best in the Desert, or SCORE? I went to LVMS this weekend because the Nitro boys are in town for test-and-tune sessions for the new NHRA season coming up. here are some pictures I took.

    Giver hell

    I've been in the passenger seat, white knuckle all the way. Doing a 100mph down a powerline road with so much dirt in the air that you can't see 10 feet in front of you is as exciting as it sounds. I have no idea how people drive like that.

    Oh OK, that is Lauglin in the background. Have you ever met Brendan Gaughan out at any of those races before?

    No, I have only been to a couple of SCORE races. I used to go to a lot of the SNORE races before wife and kids came in to the picture.
