Today was an amazing day as I was given the opportunity to ride shotgun with a dragster at Raceway Park! Check out the pix and the video of my run!

Thank to the entire crew at Raceway Park and the guys from the Doug Foley Drag Racing School!  This weekend is the NHRA Toyota Summernationals, click here for the full schedule and ticket info.

It was a gorgeous day for racing, warm but not too humid, and actually a nice cool breeze blowing down the strip.

The day began meeting a few racers: Antron Brown, Eddie Krawiec, Cruz Pedregon, and Alexis DeJoria.

After a nice lunch, we headed downstairs, put on our firesuits, climbed into a two-seater S&W Big Block Chevy Powered dragster, and took our runs down the track!

An unexpected bonus of the day: meeting one of my celeb crushes, Rachel Nichols!
