Top Fuel Motorcycles
Every year there seems to be less and less Top Fuel motorcycles drag racing.Do you think Top Fuel will continue it's current trend of less each year?.There were only 5 top fuelers at prostar,one of them was a harley.

Dean and I were talking to Rowland (crew member for McBride)...he said it costs 5,000 to run at a race like ProStar...NOT CHEAP!!!
That doesn't even include "stuff breaking"...
Top Fuel is a Rich-Mans(persons) sport for SURE...
I'm sure it costs the "lesser teams" less but still a LOT of money...
The way ProStar runs they're races (they were going to run Top Fuel AFTER THE 600 S/S one round before the fuelers pitched a fit (as they SHOULD have)...
It just doesn't make sense to me NOT to let them run 4-rounds of qualifying at an event like the World Finals either...
I'm sorry to see Brian Johnson retire from the class too...
It also (nothing to do with Top Fuel) is a RIP-OFF to only pay back 4-places in Street ET??? when there are over 150-bikes in the class?!?!?!
THAT just ain't right...
ProStar suck-seeds in pissing racers off at every event I go to...too bad they're the best game in town...
