With the grueling 2017 NHRA season finally wrapped up and logged in the history books, we made the decision here at Drag Racing Underground, that we'd officially proclaim November as being "NHRA RACERS APPRECIATION MONTH". Let's face it, for all the racers who compete in NHRA's seasonal points championship, it ain't exactly "a walk in the park", quite to the contrary, it's actually a long, physically and emotionally demanding task that is far more taxing than most folks living "normal" lives could possibly imagine. Put plainly, IT'S HARD, HARD WORK!!... Sure, you see all the NHRA racers smiling for the television cameras, and doing their best to provide rational explanations for when things go terribly wrong -- You see the zillion dollar luxury trailers and accommodations, HOWEVER, when you get down to the brass tacks of it all, they're the racers who have to get suited up, and climb in the cockpit at the track, when the temperature's 99 degrees with 100% humidity, and do their best to concentrate on going another tough round of nerving NHRA racing... You simply can't deny the fact that with all the glitz, glamour, and pageantry of NHRA racing, it's still a very difficult job. It can often be a dastardly demanding occupation that requires plenty of the proverbial "blood, sweat and tears"... That all said, that's why we're officially proclaiming this month of November as "NHRA RACERS APPRECIATION MONTH"!!!... We salute all you racers who accept the challenge of competing on the extremely "labor intensive" NHRA tour... We know you give your soul and spirit to this rough and occasionally raucous NHRA racing arena, and for that, we appreciate your show of unwavering strength and genuine gusto... Now that the 2017 season's finally over, take a breather, hug your family, and pat yourself on the back for all you do to keep this NHRA drag racing train a rollin'... Below is posted a photographic image that yours truly snapped at Old Bridge Township Raceway Park's prestigious Summernationals event, of veteran NHRA Top Fuel competitor Clay Millican. For the 2017 points battle, Clay finished a respectable 6th among the top ten in the nitro digger field. I have great respect and genuine admiration for Clay Millican and ALL the drivers who muster the strength to go drag racing on the grueling NHRA tour... We genuinely salute each and every single one of you...
