    You Know Your a Drag Racing Addict if:

    You want to have kids just so you'll have a pit crew
    Your weed whacker,chain saw and leaf blower are balanced and blue printed
    You put a 60-foot launch pad in your backyard instead of a pool
    After your garage door opens you can wait for the first stop light.
    After one pass around the yard on your lawn mower you read the plug and fatten "er up".
    You can't remember your spouse's birthday, but you know the e.t. and speed records in every professional class.
    You know Hookers are headers
    Your home page is set at NHRA.com or IHRA.com
    You refer to a cold day as "fast air."
    Your wife and kids report you missing 15 times a year.
    Your are more enthusiastic about getting your National DRAGSTER in the mail than a check.
    You'll spend $300 for a single slick, but you won't spend more than $150 for all four new tires on your mini van.
    You run your mini van tires at 6psi
    You have a shift light in your minivan
    While you're shopping for underwear, you find yourself looking for an SFI tag.
    You honk your horn and go nuts and give a thumbs-up to any other car on the road sporting an NHRA or IHRA Member sticker.
    When something falls off of your car, you wonder how much weight you just saved.
    You bought a race car before buying a house.
    You're looking for a new tow vehicle and still haven't bought furniture!
    You have enough spare parts to build another car..
    You save broken car parts as "momentous".
    You've found your lawnmower runs pretty good on 108 octane gas (but doesn't particularly care for alcohol).
    Instead of pictures in your wallet, you have time slips.
    After you tell your wife where you'd like to go on vacation she answers: "Why...is there a race there?"
    You are on a first-name basis with owners of every local speed shop.
    You are the type of person who goes ballistic when you have to sit in a traffic jam for more than five minutes, yet you can spend five hours in the staging lanes.
    Every stoplight becomes a practice tree,to test your ability to tree the guy in the other lane
    You wash your car like it was your firstborn child, you tend to its needs like it was your own body, you protect it like it's your family, then you drive it like you stole it.
    You use racing fuel as an after shave.
    If a 5 lb hammer can't fix it,it must be electrical
    Keep the shiney side up! 8)
