After all of the time trials ended the Pinks crew had to decide which time class would make it into the Final 64. Cars running in the mid 9 second range were picked to participate in the final 64 which would then be broken down to 16 cars. All of this went by rather quickly since ZMax drag strip in Concord, NC is the only track in America four lanes wide.
During a brief intermission, jet cars took over the drag strip and put on a great show; these are by far the loudest cars you will ever hear, and the heat they generate is sweat producing even standing five stories up on top of the ZMax tower.
After about 15 of the final 16 cars were finished everyone was sent home due to rain. The show picked back up where it left off on Sunday - but that’s another post.
I am pleased to say that everyone from, SPEED production crew, to ZMax employees, to the Pinks crew were all super nice and wanted to do nothing but make your day better. As if to prove my point, a member on the production crew asked my girlfriend out on a date.
