2010 National Drag racing event in Las Vegas was a fantastic success.
We saw John Force run a 3.90 – 325mph in his Castrol GTX Funny Car. Never have we seen blinding speed that FAST……WOW !.
We had two Canadian teams competing….21 year old Dragster sensation Ashley Bart from Calgary, Alberta and Shawn Cowie from Richmond, B.C. who ran an amazing 5.38.
