After subjecting the in-laws to the last 8km of the awesome Giro stage (at one point, the heart rate ticker showed one guy at 93% of his max going just 19kph!), I turned the remote over to my father-in-law, who promptly switched back to the drag racing. I started packing our stuff, not really paying attention until I heard something I couldn't quite grasp at first -- Marty Nothstein had just won his first NHRA National race!
Marty Nothstein? The "Blade?" WTF?
Sure enough, Nothstein has figured out how to shift gears (quite literally) just in time to take on his second season on the funny car circuit. They did an interview with him, and he's lost a lot of weight -- even more than before, he looks like an older version of Chris Mosk from The Pony Shop (Mosk is in the middle, white shirt). Seems he's doing OK for himself, except that he made it through qualifying only to have his team take off when the first drops of rain started falling ... without telling him! D'oh! When the track dried, he was left with a DNS ...
I just have one question -- he does know that "top fuel" means something different in motorsports, right?
