What the heck is wrong with the IHRA! They are dumping the most popular class they have, Nitro Funny Cars in 2009.. Do you think it may be time to hire some people with some ability to attract sponsors. It was quite obvious that Evan Knoll wanted to drop a bucket load of money into the IHRA so he did. God only knows what the heck they are going to do for sponsor ship for next year for every other class that EK sponsored, They have showed without a doubt that they can not attract a sponsor ( Alky funny cars come to mind, what a joke that was, tomorrow , next week next month, whatever ) and now they have a lousy economy to deal with. I no I sound little bitter but, they cant even say they will try to get funding for the Nitro cars, because they can't. On the bright side, IF they run Alchy cars next year you guys can possibly get off the grass and on the pavement!!
