September 6, 2015 – Great Lakes Dragaway, Union Grove Wisconsin
Another fun-filled day at the drag strip racing fans! I attended the 2015 Time Machine Nationals at Great Lakes Dragaway in Union Grove Wisconsin. This was a 2-day event running Saturday and Sunday and featured nostalgic racers including Funny Cars, Nitro, Wheel Standers, Alcohol, Gassers, and Jet Cars!
Here’s a video of one of the Funny Car runs:
My racing friend Barry Richter attended as well with his insanely fast Jet Funny Car, “Hypersonic”. Special thank you to the crew of “Hypersonic” and especially Barry Richter for allowing me to hang out with him in his pit area. Always a pleasure speaking with this man and his conversation and advice is always appreciated.
If you have never seen a Jet Funny Car burn down the track, I am personally telling you, get out there and see it! The video clip below is good, but it is no comparison to actually being there and seeing it live and in person. Check out the clip below for a look at what a Jet Funny Car can do.
