Pink Saturday: NHRA

I know this isn't holiday related, but I meant to post it a few weeks ago. Whoops! Next week with the holiday theme.

So you might be thinking "What does Drag Racing have to do with Pink?"

Well, here you go. One of Ashley Force's cars.

And we must not forget the great Shirley Muldowney, of course.

Shirley Muldowney

My husband is not a big sports guy, but he does love cars. Drag racing in particular. We've been down to Pomona numerous times as the season starts and finishes there. Sometimes he's been able to score tickets for one of the tower suites, courtesy of one of his company's suppliers, but he's always taken someone else, not me! This year I was wily. I'll go with you if you get Cooner Wire tickets, I purred. And he did.

So there we are, on TV. (Behind the glass above the word WIRE. What, you can't see me?)

Here's our view.

And the view 50 years ago.

It was a lot of fun. Not only because there was free beer and food in the suite!

I have found you can find pinks in the most unlikely places. I never leave home without my digital.

Hearty Pink, come and see when you get a chance.

Free refreshments and muffled noise make everything better. :)

What a fun day! I've always secretly had a thing for fast cars. I can't care less about other sports but a pretty fast car goes down the street? You HAVE my attention!
