I took a look at the weather, and went along Saturday, was playing at photographer, as I was wandering around with friends.
Here's the one of the Top Fueler with problems, just as it happened (look at the back tyre unloading)
I was waiting for the Mercury in picture 5 above to do a run, but he had carb problems, so I only saw one run that he aborted before the 1/8 mile.
The bikes went quite well
The one before would have been better if the two "professionals" weren't mid frame talking to each other...
I also got a sequence of the Bigfoot truck getting it wrong and parking it on it's side.
