Wally Parks Tribute.
A few weekends back I had a great time, There is nothing better than a cold beer and a day at the races. It was the NHRA drag races finals in Pomona this year. It was a great time but one thing really stood out. Throughout the day during the final eliminations they were bringing cars out from the NHRA museum and lining them up down the outside of the track. At first i didn't know what was going on but I then realized what was going on. They were going to do a tribute to the late Wally Parks. They started pulling cars out from early drag racing days to the most modern cars such as a top fuel dragster and a funny car. They had introduce all these cars and gave a breif history about them as well. When the announcer had finished his introduction of the cars the greatest thing happened. They Fired up all of the cars that they had brought out. It was a great sound, hearing all of the engines roar and them reving it up. It was a great tribute to Wally Parks. Im just glad i was there to see it and be a part of. http://i142.photobucket.com/albums/r119/Lewdogg13/DSC01185.jpghttp://i142.photobucket.com/albums/r119/Lewdogg13/DSC01186.jpghttp://i142.photobucket.com/albums/r119/Lewdogg13/DSC01188.jpghttp://i142.photobucket.com/albums/r119/Lewdogg13/DSC01189.jpghttp://i142.photobucket.com/albums/r119/Lewdogg13/DSC01190.jpghttp://i142.photobucket.com/albums/r119/Lewdogg13/DSC01191.jpg
