Event:<p>The adjectives come easy for this motorsports tradition. Each Labor Day weekend, NHRA racers and fans descend on Indianapolis Raceway Park for the biggest, oldest, richest, and most prestigious drag race in the world. The fabled IRP quarter-mile, site of many of drag racing’s greatest moments, is regarded by many as one of the smoothest on the circuit, an appropriate staging ground for some of the season’s most eagerly sought championships. The marathon also hosts two high-dollar bonus events, the $100,000-to-win Skoal Showdown for Funny Cars and the Ringers Gloves Pro Bike Battle, which pays $25,000 to the winning Pro Stock Motorcycle rider.<p>---------------------------------------------------------------------------<p>I will be here along with DocGTO whos car is going to be show cased or some such honor. Either way should be a good event with lots of burn outs and nitrous! PM me if anyone is planning on going.<p>Pictures of the Doc's car:<p><IMG SRC="http://i9.photobucket.com/albums/a81/t34will/LowAngle.jpg" BORDER="0"><p><IMG SRC="http://i9.photobucket.com/albums/a81/t34will/Dave.jpg" BORDER="0"><p><IMG SRC="http://i9.photobucket.com/albums/a81/t34will/Launchhard.jpg" BORDER="0">
