I’ve done plenty of races in my time, but I still haven’t made it to an NHRA event. I was sorely tempted to head out to the Auto Club Raceway in Pomona for the Finals this year—I just couldn’t swing it. Thankfully, my good pal Eric Bellwood was looking out for me.
Bellwood and I met at the IndyCar race in Long Beach this year (and grabbed some drinks in Indianapolis for the 500), and he’s always done a damn good job of sending me amazing shots of racing events. He kept me updated with great NHRA shots all weekend. I just knew I had to post ‘em here for the rest of y’all. So, with his permission, I’ve collected a gallery of some of his best, because we all need a little more speed in our lives.
