Default Anybody heading to Joliet for the NHRA races this weekend?

Any of the Illinois boyz on here heading to Joliet this weekend? For the 1st time in 11 years I will actually be able to kick back and watch racing since I wont be workin the DRAW auction. They moved it to Englishtown this year so I get a break. I will post up some pics as I get them. Got some hospitality passes to Schumachers pits on Sunday. Not a huge fan but they usually cook ribeyes and you get to be up pretty close when they fire up his dragster!
