Giv­ing Thanks

Drag Racer - - Over Cen­ter -

AS I WRITE THIS, IT’S JUST A COU­PLE OF DAYS BE­FORE THANKS­GIV­ING. I have much for which to be thank­ful, es­pe­cially this job. Get­ting paid for what you love to do is truly a bless­ing.

But I most cer­tainly could not cob­ble to­gether a sin­gle is­sue of Drag Racer with­out those who con­trib­ute their tal­ents to make it hap­pen. In the spirit of Thanks­giv­ing, I’d like to thank those who make this magazine pos­si­ble:

Doug Adams, Jere Al­had­eff, Whit Baze­more, Bobby Ben­nett, Mike Brad­ford, Richard Brady, Jeff Burk, John DiBar­tolomeo, Steve Dren­nan, Dave Emanuel, Mike Gal­imi, Chris Graves,

Chuck Green, Don Hale, Lou Hart, Al Heis­ley, Keith Hu­dak, Stephen Jus­tice, Wayne Led­erer, Ron Lewis, Brian Los­ness,

Bob John­son, Bob McClurg,

Joe McHugh, Ed­die Maloney,

Tim Mar­shall, Dave Mil­carek, Vic­tor Moore, Gary Nas­tase, Kleet Nor­ris, Dave Oakes, Alan Par­adise, Marty Reger, Steve Reyes, Jim Rid­di­ford, Roger Richards, Wayne Scraba, John Shanks, Jamie Shores-Fraijo,

Rod Short, Richard Shute, Tony Thacker, Ian Tocher, Su­san

Wade, Dave Wal­lace, Jim White, Andy Will­sheer and Kenny Young­blood. If I’ve missed any­one, please let me know!

And of course, the folks at En­gaged Me­dia: Eric Knagg,

Ja­son Mul­roney, Eu­gene Pineda, Michelle Sal­cedo—and es­pe­cially, The Mon­goo$e. Thanks to each and every one of you.

Speak­ing of con­trib­u­tors, re­cently Doug Adams came in a close sec­ond in the pres­ti­gious Les­lie Lovett Me­mo­rial Photo Con­test, held an­nu­ally in con­junc­tion with the Cal­i­for­nia Hot Rod Re­u­nion. His photo cap­tures Jimmy Nix’s Hemi sail­ing down the track in the af­ter­math of his T/F blow-over at the 1992 Win­ter­na­tion­als.

Wait, I al­most for­got! Thank you to all of the loyal read­ers/ sub­scribers out there.

By the time you’ve read this, Thanks­giv­ing and Christ­mas will have passed. I hope you had a won­der­ful hol­i­day sea­son, and I wish you all the best for 2018.
