Dallas Is Flat And Wet

And that's not a country song

We're used to having the Dallas Super Chevy Show on the flat, but we're getting tired of the wet. Not that we can do anything about it but we have to vent a little, right? For the car show entrants, the racers, and the spectators, Saturday was a total loss (cancelled at about mid-morning) but Sunday was a great comeback day. Tons of great machines rolled in to show, shine, and race, and we had all the action we usually expect only compressed into one fine day.

Because of the weather we converted our Nitro Coupes into eighth-mile cars and Dan Nickelson, Nitro Champ for the last two seasons, proved he could win at any distance. Dan's team took the final with a 4.150-second e.t. at 177.79 mph over Gary Irving who had to back out of the throttle on his run. Earlier, Gary had set low elapsed time of 4.067 seconds and best speed of the event at 178.74 mph. We don't relate as much to eighth-mile times for Nitro Coupes but it is remarkable to go that fast and that quick in 660 feet!

We met the family of a fine young man from Waco, Isaac Blount, who was killed in a crime at the age of 21 years while attending the University of Nevada Las Vegas. His family finished Isaac's pickup as a salute to him and brought it to the show where it drew many admiring looks. Don't miss the photo.

As you look through the Editor's Choice Drag Race Top Ten Award winners photos, realize that these were the racers who had their cars out of the trailer, even in threatening weather. If we couldn't see the car, we couldn't give it an award so cars in trailers, worthy as they might have been, were out of the running.
