I went to the late night drags at PIR a while ago. If you don't have someone in mind the staff will just line you up w/ something that should be a good race.
They put me next to an old Nova that sounded pretty mean. I have no idea what mods it had. I looked over to acknowledge the other driver before the race but this chick looked rather intense and wouldn't look over at me.
When the tree dropped I got a decent launch and heard the Nova start spinning its tires. I was gone. She was catching me by the end but it was too late.
I was surprised I had won when we both let off the throttle after the line. As I'm thinking about what a good race it was I hear her floor it all of the sudden! She passes me in the run off area (a little embarrassed maybe?) and blows right by the exit at the end!
I assume she had to turn around to get back. Either that or drive around PIR in the dark. Funny stuff.
