All I can say is wow, these things are disgustingly fast. When they leave the line, the only thing I can say is it feels like a moving earthquake or a 4 second explosion!

Yeah they were. It is unreal standing there when those cars take off. The ground shakes and a big shockwave hits your face and when you look down the track, they are done.

Hell even the 10 second cars that were running seemed slow. I am watching the show now on ESPN.

Isn't that S**t REDICULOUS! I saw my first Natl. Event in 1997 at Bandameire raceway in Denver, it was AWESOME. There is no describing that event. The smells, sound, speed, everything is just too intense for you to ever register it sometimes. Its is the coolest thing ever.
