Your agent loves reading unique perspectives of ADRL events and he had a wonderful time reading a fantastic story from Mark at godragracing.org.
Mark does the work on the website for the Pro Extreme team of Camp Stanley, Axle Weiss and driver John Stanley and was at the ADRL’s recent Northeast Drags II presented by Penske at Maple Grove Raceway.
Mark went in-depth with his review and his weekend and your agent was thoroughly impressed with the entire story. The pictures and videos were superb as well.
To open, Mark talked about he he got sold on the ADRL in its first trip to Maple Grove in 2011:
Most people know me as a true northeast quarter mile only type of guy, and somewhat of a non-believer in 1/8th mile drag racing feeling that nothing could sway me until last year for my first ever ADRL event where I was blown away by the level of competition, the absolute violent nature of these machines and tenacity of the teams. You could say I’m now a believer.
Not to downplay any other organizations or associations across the United States, I feel I witnessed something at the Northeast Drags last year that I don’t get to see often in our area. I simply wanted more and again this year, I got it.
Later, Mark had more to say about this year’s event:
Seriously, this is one series I’m proud to be a legitimate, card-carrying member and fan just as anybody else would be with or without credentials. Drag Racing at this level is hard to find in many ways and still I consider it A SPECTATOR SPORT in every sense of the word.
Sure we have our local large events that come around once, maybe twice a year and not to say they aren’t exciting, this is something we don’t get a chance to see often.
A well-managed Extreme show, exciting teams, drivers and cars that don’t visit as much as we’d like. And machines that rival NHRA’s top classes yet you can literally walk up to any driver or crew and stand next to a fire breathing 3,000HP machine without the secret service style of “not allowed” near the cars. These guys love meeting people and it shows.
Now, your agent must confess that the segments from above don’t begin to cover the amount of in-depth coverage (photos included) that Mark gave the Northeast Drags.
If you don’t do another thing today, that’s fine. Just make sure you check out this full report, all the photos and the wonderful coverage given to what was an incredible event.
In this case, the review certainly does it justice.
