Happy 10th Birthday, I found your site by chance four years ago, you revived my interest in drag racing that had been dormant for 20+ years. I can't thank you enough. Keep up the good work, I look for the news every day.

-- Syd McDonald

I can't believe it's been ten years already. My name is Marty VanHeule and I was a crew member for Peter Wackers Roofer's Toy '57 Bel Air Pro Mod when we took the title at the Main Event in 2004. We qualified 11th and took out the #1, 2, and 3 qualifiers during elims including the mega burn down in the second round against Fast Freddy Fagerström and his wild pickup. I still have the video from the starting line and I love how the starter reacted by throwing his hands up in the air. That was a great victory especially for an unsponsored NITROUS car against all the blown heavy hitters from Sweden. We were atleast .40 slower than those cars but we managed to keep it together for four solid rounds. Of course it didn't help any that Peters reaction times were .03 all day long. Us folks here in the states depend on you guys for all the European action and updates as it happens. Keep up the good work and maybe I'll see you at the Pod or Hockenheim sometime.

-- Marty VanHeule

My most memorable moment is actually a bit older than 10 years. It was when you initiated a meeting at Santa Pod's VIP area, where you presented your idea and vision. I knew right there and then that this was going to be good. And I'm very pleased indeed that I was right. Thanks for a wonderful 10+ years my friend!!!

-- Erik Zettervall

Happy Birthday Eurodragster!!! Just when US drag racing was getting a bit too predictable, Eurodragster introduced me to European drag racing and kept my interest in the sport alive. Thanks.
