NORWALK, Ohio -- Caught in the middle of the quiet months, we’re missing the rumble.
So Summit Motorsports Park cruised some racing Websites in search of sweet posts to pull us through until April and the Funny Car Fox Hunt.
Here’s what we found so far:
John Force Racing announces their 2013 Mello Yello line ups on January 10 in Yorba Linda, Calif.
Will Brittany Force launch a Top Fuel dragster rookie season a year after her sister, Funny Car driver Courtney Force, won Rookie of the Year? Are there other changes? We’re counting down!
Also, if you would like to laugh, to cry, or to warm your heart watching 15-time Funny Car Champion John Force with his grandbabies, check out their family race team videos and outtakes at http://www.johnforceracing.com/.
Are you new to drag racing?
Even if you’re not, click on “How a Top Fuel Dragster Works” in the Latest Videos section of the Kalitta Motorsports Website at http://teamkalitta.com/.
What a treat!
Australian David Grubnic, driver of the Optima Batteries Top Fuel Dragster for Kalitta Motorsports, Ypsilanti, Mich., explains the processes for powering up a Top Fuel dragster.
Popular Mechanics produced the video for their “How’d They Do That?” series.
Next time you’re in the pits watching wrenches, elbows and parts fly, you’ll know what they’re trying to accomplish, and why.
This video makes a great science class discussion starter. Suggest it to a teacher, administrator, home schooling family, or junior dragster driver.
One more thing: These videos provide super introductions to professional drag racing teams and individuals.
John and Courtney Force, and David Grubnic, race at the Summit Racing Equipment NHRA Nationals, a part of the Mello Yello Drag Racing Series, July 4-7, 2013 at Summit Motorsports Park in Norwalk, Ohio.
We provide Bader Family Signature Fireworks, too!
You can pull your loved ones close, sit back in your seat and enjoy a pyro extravaganza worthy of our nation’s birth.
We don’t stop there. Area bands provide extra entertainment when the racing stills.
What a great way to share the holiday weekend! Click on the Summit Racing Equipment NHRA Nationals link for ticket, camping and hotel information.
Also, we’re bringing back the Funny Car Fox Hunt in celebration of the 2013 Golden Anniversary of Summit Motorsports Park in Norwalk, Ohio.
