On Friday, April 8, 2005 the gang arrived at Houston Raceway Park in Baytown, Texas to take in the sites and sounds of the NHRA. Not to mention the refreshments!

This was KaSandra's first drag race, so the rules of initiation were in full play. During this 3 day adventure, we roamed the pits and met numerous drivers who are always fan friendly. KaSandra was able to experience pit crews performing turn-arounds, warm-ups and all the other excitement. I believe we have another drag racing addict.

Turn-arounds are pretty intriguing to watch, as the pit crews are provided 75 minutes between races to tear down, rebuild and warm-up the cars for the next race.
