“Racing for Education”
2013 NHRA Southern Nationals at Atlanta Dragway
As in years past, our weekend began with joining the US Army YES Program on Friday morning, and we saw a steady stream of school kids coming through to learn about our program. Thank you to Brett Lyons and the NHRA crew for allowing us to participate in this awesome event.
Our weekend battling multiple rain delays saw several of the NHRA Pro drivers making visits to our display while waiting for racing to resume. Funny Car Pilot Courtney Force made her way down the midway to share a few minutes with our team. Top Fuel Pilot Leah Pruitt prefers vehicles with four tires, but would not mind blasting down the track on our team’s drag-bike. She was also impressed with a plaque made with a piston from her 2012 NHRA ProCareRX Pro-Mod Mustang, and eagerly autographed the top of the piston, making this unique item complete.
