  1. So what’s wrong with bringing the show to Houston Raceway Park (Baytown)? We have had several continuously active dragstrips since the late 60s in this area. The traveling people – will be here; it is what they do. With some active and persistent promoting – Seth – you’ll fill the place up the way you did when Pinks All Out came to town If you remember, the vendors sold out of T-shirts any you sold out of Beer. How often can you say that? Furthermore, you will generate more local enthusiasm and patronage for Gasser classes, and Fuel Altereds than you can shake a stick at. People love them because they are so unpredictable. That is what current NHRA racing lacks. It is all cookie cutter stuff, except Comp. (If you) Bring it! (They will come!)
