I mean with the 1000' racing going on, No one can set ET or MPH records, Should his wins count towards a record established racing a 1/4 mile??????????

I was watching last night and noticed he tied J.A. but should it really be considered a record? They are running 1000', not the full 1320, alot can happen in that last 320 FT.

What's your thinking on this?

I used to work for DSR and like tony as a freind.....but,i dont feel any records should be counted till they race the 1000' for a while(if they keep doing it).

Shumacker has another few months to set records. Then he will be an also ran driver bitching about Alan Johnson's dominance.

If they never really recorded 1000ft times before and never had prior et's and mph, wouldn't they start from scratch then?

The only reason I say NO THEY SHOULDNT... is because the NHRA will go back to 1/4 mi racing... soon. So yeah... great question and yeah... its total BS to let ANYONE have any records that arent specifically 1000ft based. But... thats just me.

I'm fine with wins records but obviously e.t. and mph records should not be counted UNLESS the NHRA goes t o 1K ft permanently.

Records are nothing more than statistics. Unless there are points of dollars associated with them, I don't care how many records they say he has - go crazy.

A win is a win...they are all racing at the same track. ET and MPH yes they should have a record book for that distance and only that distance. If/when they go back to 1/4 mile those records previously set will still be there.
