NHRA Winternationals 2023

今までは2月中旬にNHRAの開幕戦として開催されていたNHRA Winternationalsが今年は(から?)4月の頭に第3戦目としてPomonaで開催されました。レース場の名前も In-N-Out Burger Pomona Dragstripとなりレース場でIn-N-Out Burgerが販売されていました。どこもブースも大賑わいでしたが、他のFood Vendorは厳しかったのではないかな?

Until now NHRA Internationals was held in mid-February as the opening race of NHRA, however from this year?  it was held at Pomona for the third race in early April. The name of the venue changed to In-N-Out Burger Pomona Dragstrip and In-N-Out Burger was sold at the venue. All the booths were crowded but, maybe other Food vendors were tough.

こんシーズンからのDriverはAlex Laughlin, Pro Stock, Top FuelもDriveし今年からFunny CarをDriveする事なったそうです。 Youngです!彼のInstagramは @alexlaughlin40 今回のレースの模様が克明にPostされています。

予選1回目で3.99を記録し予選を11thで通過し日曜日のEliminatioではDHL Carと対戦する事になりました。
