    I was told this weekend that the last time someone did a big Sportsman race like this, the purse was $1000 and there were over 80 cars. I would say judging by of that, there should easily be 100+ Sportsman cars at this event.
    If winning was easy, then the losers would be winners.
    I wish I was the man my dog thinks I am.

    It's funny how many dragstrip claim to be the oldest. Cordova is another one the occasionally makes that claim. I believe this to be the oldest .......... http://www.greatlakesdragaway.com/

    Interesting. '55 vs' 56. I will have to do some research to see who legitamately owns the title.
