IMDRA Midwest Nationals Pictures -part 1

So this last weekend I attended the IMDRA Midwest Nationals at the Lynwood R/C Dragway. I was looking forward to racing at the event, but due to some conflicting scheduling I was only able to make it out to watch the finals on Sunday. I was bummed that I didn’t get to be out there for the full three or four days. There were a ton of guys out there who I haven’t seen in a while, and just wanted to catch up with. Then there were a bunch of guys who I have only talked to over email or phone, and was finally able to meet them in person. So while I was there for the racing, I was doing a ton of meet and greets. There are way to many people to start sending shout outs too, so I won’t even try because I know someone will be upset that I missed them, but I do have to say it was an honor to meet Jim ‘Rainman’ Schauer in person. He was super friendly, and put on a great show.

It made me really miss dragracing this year, and I hope I can squeeze in a race or two before the season is over.

I don’t have a bunch of stats, or times. I was hoping there would be some other write ups, but for the moment I don’t see any online. If anyone that was at the race would like to share some official results I can post, drop me a line! I believe I saw more than a few records broken that day. There was a 1.48 in Top Fuel Nitro, and I saw a 109.9mph pass in Electric Dragster, which isn’t the record, but it’s darn fast! The guys in my class I would of been in were consistently throwing down 1.3*’s and I know, not having been to a test/tune in a while I wasn’t close enough.

Anyway, here are a TON of pictures I took. I also have some video I’ll need to edit. The pictures are too many to post all at once, so you’ll have to look for a couple of updates throughout the day here. Enjoy! And feel free to spread the link around, I haven’t seen a lot of pictures from the event yet.
