I thinkPharris/mills is going to be the team to look out for if they commit to the season.
Magalodon is another car to watch. Hope Brent can make a few more races.

too much politics to have a no "regular" tv guy win it.
Already told one guy don't show up. Told another he has to race in the night before even though not every race has a "race in".

My guess Ryan martin cause that's who they want to win

According the most people, it's invitation only this year because there were too many stiffs on TV last season with no charisma and they don't want that happening again. So there will be no race your way in. At least that's what the participants that got invites and Chuck were saying the last time I paid any attention in the NPK group. They were saying it's why Blubaugh wasn't invited and a few others.

So basically it is about Charisma and not fast cars !



Basically it's a combination of things with TV ratings the primary concern as that's what pays the bills and allows this scale of production to even exist. That said there is NO scripting done for the actual racing. Chips are drawn and we line em up and race. Fans have their favorites but that changes with every outcome of every round. We(Evolution Racing...Giuseppe Gentile driving) had very little following for round one. By round five we were getting standing ovations from the paid in crowd. I run across a lot of haters and misinformation but there is underlying truth that many have no desire to hear.

Thanks! This event was everything we expected,and then some. I don't know what any fan of door slamming drag racing could dislike about this. I love the fact of the crazy mix up combination of different cars,from Pinkies old Chevelle,Gen 1 Novas,Camaros,everything in between,all the way to the late model stuff,and everyone running a different combo,power adder,and heads-up! Guys,keep livin' the dream,whole lot of appreciative fans in this area. I think Kyes one of the best leavers in the business,huge fan of him,too.
Hats off to the crew at MDIR Budds Creek for handling the event.
And Good Luck!!!
