NHRA top fuel drag racing tends to get overlooked on these pages, despite it being a raucous good time. Here's a wallpaper from Eric Rieskamp from the 2010 NHRA US Nationals qualifying of Brandon Bernstein's Copart top fuel dragster. So fast.

I gotta admit that although I love all forms of motorsports, NHRA is the most fun event to attend from the fan's perspective. I went to Bristol this past June and I went home with 2 clutch plates, a piston sleeve, and a piston autographed by Tony and Don Schumacher. The best part is I got those autographs from Tony and Don personally, on race day, and I didn't need any special pit pass or anything. It's just amazing to have this level of interaction with the drivers/owners/teams on race day and it's even more amazing that they make you feel so welcome. One time I had Melanie Troxel ask me if I was having fun and enjoying the races and I did a double take because when does a driver actually ask you something?! Go to a NASCAR event where you're lucky to see a driver let alone have one actually say something to you.

I also forgot to mention that it's just pure awesome watching the cars run. Nothing is louder, the Nitro exhaust makes you choke/cry, the flames (which is raw hydrogen burning in the air) are dead sexy, and the cars are damn fast. I've been to World of Outlaws, CART, NASCAR, and many other forms of racing but nothing is more fun than a day at the drag strip.

If you like motorsports you owe it to yourself to see an NHRA event.
