We’re en route to Vegas, ready to make some exhibition passes at this weekend’s NHRA Heritage Series “Speed Spectacular” at the Las Vegas Strip.

Word is that a trio of other vintage-style, nitro-burning Funny Cars will be joining us: As Drag Racing Online reports, these other competitios are “Nathan Bugg in the ‘Li’l Nate’ Barracuda, Dennis Taylor in the ‘Future Flash’ Dodge Charger, (and) the ‘Beach City Chevrolet’ topless Corvette driven by Ed Schwarz.”

Come catch us pound the pavement before you hunker down next weekend to watch “The Greatest Spectacle in Racing,” As motorsports writer Jeff Wolf says in his colum today: “… (T)here’s enough action on television and at Las Vegas Motor Speedway to feed your fix until the Indianapolis 500 and NASCAR Sprint Cup Coca-Cola 600 run May 24.” -30-
