THOUGHTS & CONCERN FOR OUR DRAG RACING FAMILY IN TURKEY...

I'd like to express my care and concern for all our friends of the drag racing community who reside in the city of Istanbul and the nation of Turkey. Many years ago, we licensed a whole lot of Drag Racing Underground video content, and racer interview footage that I conducted with drivers on these shores, to what was sort of the MTV type of TV network based in Istanbul, Turkey. That's from a time when Turkey was just making its initial baby steps in having an appreciation for the straightline motorsport. Yours truly and the DRU team spent a lot of quality time with the TV execs from Turkey, we even took them out once for a day at the drags in Englishtown, New Jersey (what a historic day for the drag racing world that was!)... That said, it breaks my heart to learn of what just happened outside a soccer stadium in central Istanbul. Car bombs and suicide bombs have claimed the lives of 29 victims and have wounded no less than 166 innocent others. Our thoughts and prayers go out to all the victims, and the family and friends of all the victims of this horrific terrorist attack... We are living on a severely sick and mentally deficient planet...
