    2:01 p.m. Weather conditions: air temperature 61 degrees, relative humidity 46 percent, barometer 29.87 inches, adjusted altitude 315 feet, track temperature 58 degrees.

    300 FEET of air, I wouldn't get all that excited about NHRA doing something to the AFuelers....

    OK Mr. Wasr4k,

    Lets go to Denver and see if an Afueler can run in the 50's... or in the hot and humid midwest in the middle of the summer on 98%

    You all are cracking me up! Just so you can all be JEALOUS just like me.... I just talked to my Dad (Niver)who happens to be in Maui at the moment (had to give him race results you know!!) I am sure that after he heard the news...(Great run by Reichart!!) I am sure it didnt take him 5.08 seconds to get to the bar to get another Coors!! I am sure he is still enjoying it as we type!! :)

    Doug- are you implying that the BAD's will run 5.1's at Denver- What is your point?
    by the way, my name is Bob Meek (I feel it is only fair to disclose that- as you are using your name) Not trying to be smart- my point is that the BAD's can not run 5.1's in any conditions whatsoever, so are we to compare best performances or what?

    I thought the big deal was that Mitch Meyers and Gunderson quit? Now I hear Gunderson goes a .20?!

    Short retirement I guess...

    It seems that alot of the statements about the 96 and 98% hurting the AFDs were just flat wrong...

    Drag racer- I feel every racer should be able to do his BEST! Michael Gunderson is a real straight up guy and it is nice to see him on the track- This a/fd vs BAD conflict has nothing to do with guys and gals that race either type of dragster- I think if you got everyone together we could have a good party- it;s the constant rule changes that are the cause of the anger/frustration in my opinion. People don't seem to be so angry in the pits as they appear on the internet. I start at the Div6 opener in May, and I bet I see nothing but smiling faces in the pits.(if it doesn't rain that is. LOL)

    It will all even itself out in the end. Naturaly asperated engins don't run good at higher elevations and there is not a lot you can do about it. They do run good at 300 feet. Check the pro stock times out!! At least you can make more air with a blower when at elevations. Richert, Gallant and Gunderson are just plain good when the air is great. You wouldn't catch one of them at Denver if it was the last race ever held.

    No I'm not amplying that they would run 5.1's any where, But they will run 5.40's and the afuelers will run 5.70's.

    BTW where were all the blown cars last weekend at Houston? only one showed up, (Wilson and he went to the Semi's). So you want the rules changed when only one blown car shows up?

    Gunderson is only running to sell his car, per Mike.
