hello everybody. In all our classes we have asked that teams run a diaper. The advantages of a good diaper are...

1) if you can contain oil/water you may prevent an accident.

2) If we can cantain oil/water after an engine failure the clean up / down time will be minimized.

Friends if we are gonna give our fans the best possible show and also have the safest possible show for our racers then a blanket or oil retention system can help. In addition please know in years of doing our race we have "NEVER" turned teams away for blanket issues...we worked with the teams in question and searched the pits for spare blankets and made it happen. I'll try to have a few extra blankets on hand to help. Blankets & oil retention devices have to become part of our every day drag racing lives. The more we use them the easier it becomes.

Thank you all for your support.
