Trip Tatum smokes the tires
top alcohol funny car
This is my first time at this site, so pardon my stupidity. I'm a mom (racer's mom) and old enough to know that I don't know my way around computers and sites, but I am trying to locate information on top alcohol funny car, ldrs in Norwalk. I used to get reliable information from drag race central but apparently that site is not being maintained on an hour-by-hour basis, not to mention day-by-day basis. So when I can't make it to a race I am left in the dark. Do you post this information? I was a norwalk q1 results thread, but I don't know how to find the results. I click on the thread and it doesn't provide the information. I can see that top alcohol dragsters are lining up, which means the funny cars have finished (funny car friday....funny cars go first).... so can I find this information??????????????????
Sorry for my ignorance. Just trying to find information without bothering the crew.

I was told Tafc has been cancelled tonight due to cold weather. I was told it was 44.7 degrees an hour ago.
Dragsters were first today.
Didn't there used to be a live feed on Norwalk's web site? anyone know where to find that, or if they still have it?
It is 2014, NHRA should be downright embarrassed that they don't have live updates from all of their events.
