Remember those Lethal Weapon movies of the 1980s and 90s when actors Martin Riggs (Mel Gibson) and Roger Murtaugh (Danny Glover) struggled with the game plan of, "Do we do it on three? Or one, two, three, then do it?"
While it might not rank up there with Pro Stock's greatest oops moments of the 1990s which included fiery hoodscoops and exploding oil tanks, the 1995 Winston Select Finals, has a moment when the late Steve Evans shares his thoughts on "taking a dive" in the Pro Stock ranks. During that time frame it happened pretty often between engine builders and engine lessees as well as between fathers and sons. The commentary is priceless.
We're in stitches here, as they say, "Busting a gut laughing."

Most people know Pat Musi as either one of the pioneering Pro Street champions or most recently the innovating drag racing engine builder who led the push of electronic fuel injection into nitrous Pro Modified.

This year at the Drag Illustrated World Series of Pro Mod event instead of having a wildcard race – which paid $10,000 to the winner last year – a burnout contest was held Friday.
And the winner was Stevie “Fast” Jackson. For his thrilling burnout, Jackson collected the $5,000 first-place check.
“This is awesome,” said Jackson. “This is just as good as the race. The reason it is so awesome because all of them people are excited about coming to watch drag racing (Friday night). It (the burnout) was crazy. It was over the track. I was steering it with the throttle, pumping the brakes, chutes, it was fun. The burnout is the most fun thing I do out here, so it was good.” During the burnout, Jackson acknowledged his car did experience some problems. “The thing went out there and shut off,” Jackson said. “I don’t know if it blew up or not, but it would not start.”
