Bob K, you are correct about drag racing. All forms of racing took a hit when the economy was circling the drain, but drag racing seems to have done better than most. My shop is located adjacent to Lucas Oil Raceway (Formerly IRP) and there are well attended drag races there nearly week in week out. Having said that the Pro Nitro fields are getting thin, very thin but the sportsman categories have held up very well.

Another thing that hasn’t helped things at all has been the regular obsoleting of expensive imported engines. Overall TAG has been a disaster, example; How much is a racers $3000 Parilla Leopard worth these days? I have little faith that the KA100 is going to revolutionize anything.
