Default Days when not racing..........

Ok I was just curious on this subject. I also thought it might be interesting to see the outcome.

Looks like people don't like to get dizzy watching cars going around in circles all day long looking for the finish line.

On TV or in person. I can't even watch the coverage of NHRA anymore with Paul Page. I am dyed in the wool drag fan but I have been just skipping the broadcasts lately. IHRA on speed is better for me.

I have to agree with doorracer, his voice drives me nuts! needs to go back to announcing Indy cars or golf tourneys. I know that Bob Frye and Alan Rhinehart work a lot of the on track media but they should be in front of the camera more often. Mike Dunn does a fantastic job, he just needs a better sidekick. I prefer watching NHRA at the track but only can do that 3 maybe 4 times a year. Nascar just makes me dizzy and my AADD last about 5 seconds, perfect for drag racing!

Agree with a lot of comments already made. Mike Dunn is excellent.
I am wondering if NHRA will become FHRA (Force Hot Rod Assn). I get so tired of them promoting him. Yes, he did a lot of good for the sport. Yes he hold lots of records. Yes, he has cute daughters. Yes he has 1/4 of the FC field every race ($$). But when they did the special (Seattle race I think) on how many miles he put on his pit bike I thought I was going to throw up.

Phew, I'm through for now......

Tough question all depends on how hung over i em on sunday HAHA. I watch them both and enjoy both of them but i dont take the time out of my day to sit and watch it. the only thing that will stop me is if i catch the lucis oil latemodels on speed. I live for dirt just cant get enough of it to much fun
