NHRA Top Fuel Playoffs Could Be A Free-For-All

In a way, watching the NHRA Top Fuelers the last decade or so has been kind of fun. You got to see Tony Schumacher make history as he stacked Wallys like cord wood, and then you got to witness the classic Schumacher vs. Larry Dixon head-to-headers.

Pedley: Atlanta A High Point Of A Great Season

Events at Atlanta Motor Speedway over the extended Labor Day weekend graphically put on display what many of us believe to be is wrong with the on-track NASCAR product this year – nothing.
