Today is "FEEDBACK FRIDAY", meaning I deal with emails that my assistant Stephanie and I receive from readers regarding our most recent blogs... Let's get right to your feedback... Yesterday's installment of Franky's & Felicia's picks for this weekend's NHRA Thunder Valley Nationals in Bristol, Tennessee resulted in a flood of emails. Jerry from Concord, MA said, "Kudos to Felicia for picking Vincent Nobile to win Pro Stock. His runner up finish at Englishtown is giving us northeastern guys some hope."--  Scott from North Palm Beach, FL wrote, "Franky's Tennessee banjo contest story cracked me up. That crazy New Yorker makes me laugh out loud!"--On the far other side of the opinion fence, Dennis from Elmhurst, ILL said, "I'm tired of reading about Franky getting into fights over the NY Mets. Can you please tell me what his stupid loser baseball team has to do with drag racing?!?"... Wednesday's TALES OF THE PHANTOM RACER serial series resulted in lots of you writing in. Daphhe from all the way in Volos, Greece said, "I was upset when the Phantom story was cancelled last week for your Summernationals coverage. I was so happy to see it back this week. Please don't ever cancel it!"-- Once again Gary from Wellington, OH wrote in, "Even if there is going to be depravity, I'm still looking forward to Maria finally driving at the darkside's sand dragster beach party!"... My blog titled 'GOING TO THE SUMMERNATIONALS ISN'T JUST ABOUT THE CARS. IT'S ABOUT THE PEOPLE, SEEING SO MANY FRIENDS, OLD AND NEW' prompted Clare from Hazlet, NJ  to comment, "I agree with Doc. Every year when my husband and I go to the Summernationals, we see so many of our friends in Englishtown. It's like going to a class reunion!"-- Sean from Northport, NY wrote, "I saw Doc hanging out with Alexis DeJoria in the Summernationals pits. I tried to say hi but she looked busy. Later in the day I ran across Doc in the nostalgia car show area. She signed my hat and told my kids a cool story. The race really is about friendship."---On the other side of the opinion fence, Andy from Forney, TX said, "What a wishy washy article Doc wrote about seeing her friends at the Summernationals. Save that kind of mushy girly garbage for the women's magazines in the food store checkout line!"... My blog wrapping up the 48th Annual NHRA Summernationals racing results inspired Barbara from Pell, AR to write, "Thanks for mentioning the sportsman winners. The sportsman racers don't get nearly enough press. And thanks for giving the Jr. Dragster kids some attention too. Doc is America's only true advocate for the little guy."... Our so-called "SUNDAY FUNNIES THAT AREN'T NECESSARILY THAT FUNNY AT ALL" didn't manage to get any of our readers in a bit of an angry frenzy this week, because it got postponed due to the Summernationals coverage, we promise that it will return this week... Thanks to all of you who wrote in with comments. Even though there's no way we have room to print all your emails, we want you to know that all your comments and suggestions are taken into consideration... Keep those emails comin' (by using the "Contact Us" link atop the page), whether you agree or disagree with mine, or any of our substitute guest bloggers' opinions, we're genuinely interested in your feedback... We just ask that you please keep your emails short and to the point, no rambling please, and please also include where you're from, we often find the location of where folks are writing us from to be sort of interesting. If you want to remain anonymous you can do that too (just write that you want to remain anonymous in the body of your email, and we won't disclose your identity in the event we choose to make a reference to your particular opinion)... Thanks...
