Default thunder valley nationals

watching the nhra eliminations on sunday i notice the stands were
empty, around 30 fans in the background, what happened,
this was a national event with the big dogs and pro-modified
ran as well, stands were empty, gas prices leaves no extra
money for family functions. oh and the stands were empty
as they were showing the f/c finals

A bunch of rain delays is what sent everyone home.

also how fustrating is ken black racing with hillary will, she has been
trying to win for 2 - 3 yrs now and brown is a rookie with matco
and he has 2 wins his first time out, no trial yr for brown, and will has
a good rigg, and what happened to erica enders, she bought out
shumacher racing pro-street car and no where to be seen, its
tough :?

I don't know,but my girl Melanie Troxel did good Hey,what was Hillary Will talking about when she said that Schumacher "made it known" that he didn't like her racing??I've always been a big fan of The Sarge,but if he's against women drivers...might have to reconsider.Anybody else catch that?

I missed that interview but I am gonna watch it again , I have it on dvr

Does anyone really know the low down on Erica enders?
I dont think she bought out schumacher's prostock team did she?, I thought she was just driving for him and then their deal just kinda faded away.
I know they were down on power and weren't making many races so big D probably gave her the boot.
But then she started up her own team or at least I thought and that fizzled out pretty quick too.
The last I heard they tucked their tails under and headed back to Texas to work on their motor program to be more competitive.
In my opinion she really screwed up when she bowed out of that sweet deal she had with cagnazzi racing, she was on a roll there for awhile and then somebody had a brain fart.

I took it to mean they just don't like each other much, maybe Shumacher doesn't like women drivers, but I took it to mean he just doesn't like Hillary Will.

i agree, erica screwed up when she left cagnazzi racing, she went all
the way to finals and i thought next time she would win, but then yea
someone had a brain fart and where is she now, she was racing for
johnson mopar racing with richie (hes gone too) and she had nickens
building the power plant but now nickens has a new car with a new
driver, i think erica has the talent but they want to be solid and race
with a good sponsor but you can't get a sponsor if your not out
there winning, you think john force will retire, hes more a cheerleader
now, everyone is running over him, well see 8)

He's still 5th in the points...I think he's a little more than a cheerleader. He has seen his better days but I think he still has a good season or two left in him.

You guys just ruined any fantasy I ever had as a kid about cheerleaders...
