Hey, we have people in the Portland stands!
Some even have some Team spirit!
A huge hand of applause goes to the Woodburn track staff and the NHRA staff, for all of their hard work this weekend! It took a lot of work to dry the track each time, and sometimes, after all that work, it would start to rain again... You are all appreciated!

Almost there...ADRA HEAT... It is supposed to be MADRAS HEAT....
