Viva Las Vegas


Las Vegas trip with the guys. We spent 3 days in Vegas watching all the drags we could watch. It was nice because no one was sitting next to me asking when it was going to be over. For anyone who thinks that this fits into the Red Neck category, you are right. The people are weird, and I felt bad for my Dad and his innocense. I don't think his eyes have ever beheld some of the white trash activities we got to see. We (my brothers and I just had to laugh). It was a good time, and I think we will make it an annual trip. Anyone interested for next year let me know. As you can see we were nice and cozy. Thank goodness I made Jerry and Jesse have a shower.

This is the Top Fuel Dragster class. The Fram car (Cory Mclenathan) ended up winning the whole thing.


For any of the Ladies that think drag racing is not for you, this is Ashley Force who is a woman (white car) racing her dad John Force (green car). Needless to say she almost won the whole thing. This would have been her first victory in her career. She ended up barely losing in the final race in the Nitro Funny Car Class.

I do want to say one thing. TV DOES NOT do these guys justice. Imagin 0-330mph in just over 4 seconds. These cars are pushing upwards of 8000 horsepower. I bet that'll beat your minivan.
