Defining this Blog

A blog is a "weB log."  A cronological record of whatever the "blogger" wants to write.  It is important to note that things change as time goes by.  In racing in particular, technology is always a driving force that can sometimes change the application of things we knew (or thought we knew) in the past.

I can remember when going much quicker than a 10.90sec 1/8th mile in a Jr. Dragster was rarely even considered a possibility.  Now kids must add ballast weight to slow their cars down so they do not go faster that the 7.90sec floor now imposted by NHRA in the 1/8th mile.  Parts have changed so dramatically since those 10.90 days that what was once the epitome of the Jr. Dragster engines is now looked at as something for beginners.

So things change, and often that changes what we all once thought the future would be.  So take what you read here and apply history to get a clear picture of why things are no longer the same.  What is written here is not laws to govern our thoughts and ideas about the future, but more a record of what was.
