Doc's Blog

Welcome to Diana 'The Doc' Thomas' official Blog ... A radio interviewer once referred to Diana as being a 'Celebrity Drag Racing Authority & Visionary'... Diana has indeed filled the shoes (or fire boots) as truly being America's foremost 'Celebrity Drag Racing Authority & Visionary'... Diana is known for being somewhat controversial at times... She writes the truth... Diana tells it like it is about drag racing and other topical issues-- You've seen Diana 'The Doc' Thomas on our DVDs, with Bret Kepner on ESPN, and in all the major media... Don't miss your opportunity to read her daily blog right here at DRAG RACING UNDERGROUND... Diana's blog gives you a daily dose of truth and reality with heart... Diana's unique and refreshing perspective is unlike anything else on the drag racing web... We strongly recommend that you bookmark this page now... Be sure you check in daily to experience & enjoy Diana's unique insight, worldly wisdom and perspective...

Last Monday I wrote on this blog page, condemning the violent actions of the "Alt-Right conservatives" that resulted in the death of Heather Heyer and the serious bodily injuries of others. I made it clear that I vehemently disagree with those Alt-Right Nazis who believe that driving a Dodge Challenger into an innocent crowd is "cool" and a form of "right wing hot rodding" (as it's been repeatedly stated and labeled on the Alt-Right's "dark media" internet pages). And I also said that it's up to the drag racing community to not accept this corrupt ideology as legitimate... That said, it breaks my heart to admit that we did indeed receive a small number of responses to my blog, more less accepting this kind of sick behavior, from some creeps in the drag racing community who have twisted their own belief system to actually convince themselves that somehow this violence is okay, because they feel that they are the only "real Americans" (as they put it) left in this nation of ours --  (I posted a short excerpt from one of those disturbing emails in yesterday's "FEEDBACK FRIDAY" feature)... Reading some of the ugly racist emails turned my stomach, and admittedly, almost made me want to walk away from this drag racing stuff, because knowing that there's creeps like that among us (even though they're a tiny minority in the drag racing community) makes my skin crawl. I've been dealing with bigoted blowhard bullies on the drag racing internet for centuries -- I'm well aware that there's some really stupid and foolish ones out there (and my attorneys have a file folder documenting them all that's as thick as an old phone book to prove it)... However, this new awakening of a strong reckless racist element lowers the bar to a loathsome level that I've never realized before... You all know that I'm a fighter, so I'm NOT going to walk away from this sport just 'cause a very small number in this drag racing world are mentally sick and deranged in their politics and right wing ideology. I still believe that the vast majority of us in the drag racing world are good people who believe in what our constitution and democracy are REALLY all about. Too many good men and women have died fighting for this democracy, for those of us who respect their courage and sacrifice to now give up on America. Let THAT be known for the record and for all my brothers and sisters of the drag racing community right here and now.

 

 

The small minority of ugly faces of racial hate in the drag racing community will not deter our pursuit of liberty.


Today is "FEEDBACK FRIDAY", meaning I deal with emails that my assistant Stephanie and I receive from readers regarding our most recent blogs... Let's get right to your feedback... Yesterday's blog featuring yet another cancellation of Franky's & Felicia's race predictions, this time the Lucas Oil Nationals, due to Franky's even further extended suspension as a result of bad behavior, resulted in lots of emails. Gerald from Allentown, PA wrote "This is the 4th race in a row of Franky's suspension! Don't you think you're being a little too hard on the guy?"-- On the other side of the opinion fence, Stacy from Grand Junction, CA said, "Please suspend Franky and his cracked girlfriend indefinitely. I don't miss them at all!"... Wednesday's TALES OF THE PHANTOM RACER serial series resulted in lots of you writing in. Ricardo from all the way in Manati, PR said, "I wouldn't mind being invited to a sand dragster beach bikini party!"-- Once again Gary from Wellington, OH wrote in, "I suspect that leader Larry Lamb has an escape plan!"... My blog calling for the drag racing community to condemn the actions of the violent faction of the alt-right, that caused a monster to drive his so-called 'hot rod Challenger' (as the alt-right refer to it on dark media) into a crowd of peaceful people, resulting in the death of an innocent young woman and injury to others, wound up producing a firestorm of reactions from readers. Alice from Carthage, TX wrote, "Thanks to Doc for having the courage to say that a racist in a fast killer car is not who we drag racers have any need for in our friendly community."-- Jeff from Bogata, NJ said "Being a lifelong Mopar enthusiast, I'm disgusted by what happened in Virginia-- On the other side of the opinion fence, I must admit that we received a small handful of creepy emails like this one-- Shane from Chataignier, LA wrote "Until you've walked in an angry white man's shoes, Doc has no business judging warriors of the alt-right movement. Obviously Doc doesn't understand the need for the white man to rise up again to get our country back. That's why we voted for our president. Doc is a typical elite media *****!" (editor's note: We are gravely disturbed by the reactions we received that were similar to Shane's. We deeply regret these sort of people lurk in our drag racing world. Racially motivated violence should have absolutely no place whatsoever in our hot rod culture.) ...  My blog promoting last weekend's Middlesex County Fair inspired Adriana from Sunnyside, WA to say, "When I was a kid, I belonged to the 4H club back east. Seeing the photo of Doc petting the guinea pigs in the 4H tent brought back many happy memories for me!"... Thanks to all of you who wrote in with comments. Even though there's no way we have room to print all your emails, we want you to know that all your comments and suggestions are taken into consideration... Keep those emails comin' (by using the "Contact Us" link atop the page), whether you agree or disagree with mine, or any of our substitute guest bloggers' opinions, we're genuinely interested in your feedback... We just ask that you please keep your emails short and to the point, no rambling please, and please also include where you're from, we often find the location of where folks are writing us from to be sort of interesting. If you want to remain anonymous you can do that too (just write that you want to remain anonymous in the body of your email, and we won't disclose your identity in the event we choose to make a reference to your particular opinion)... Thanks...

 

 

It's "FEEDBACK FRIDAY" here at DRAG RACING UNDERGROUND. That means I print excerpts from some of the emails that you readers write in with. I always appreciate you folks who sit down at your keyboard and type me your thoughts and opinions.



We originally planned for today's blog to feature Franky's & Felicia's picks for this weekend's Lucas Oil NHRA Nationals in Brainerd, MN. However, as you probably are already well aware, we suspended Franky a few weeks ago, just prior to the Mopar NHRA Mile-High Nationals, due to his involvement in a "road rage" related incident, when he was allegedly "cut off" on the Brooklyn Queens Expressway by a driver wearing a Yankees cap. And yes, we all know how strongly Franky feels that New Yorkers should be supporting the Mets and not the Yankees. An altercation ensued. To make a long story short, we then temporarily suspended Franky from his race predicting duties, in hopes that this issue would be cleared up in an expedient manner, and we'd be able to have him and Felicia return to predicting the winners for the NHRA Toyota Nationals race in Sonoma  -- However, unfortunately, we felt compelled to extend Franky's suspension, due to the fact that when he was being investigated for the recent road rage incident, an arrest warrant surfaced from Pennsylvania, alleging that Franky and an ex-girlfriend of his from Pennsylvania, were suspected of videotaping feature films inside a rural Pennsylvania move theater, and then producing pirated DVD copies of same movies, and illegally selling them on Canal Street in New York City. So Franky was still stuck in quite a disturbing legal funk. We felt that we then had no choice but to extend Franky's suspension to include the NHRA Northwest Nationals as well... And now, more recently, Franky & Felicia were dinner guests at Drag Racing Underground's own Stephanie's palatial house and estate, located in an exclusive gated New Jersey community, and Franky wound up starting an argument with Stephanie's husband Rubert, about a Mets related matter, and in a subsequent heated exchange of words, Franky called Stephanie's and Rubert's house "a friggin' dump" -- This bad blood between Drag Racing Underground folk resulted in us once again feeling it necessary to add an extension to Franky's suspension. And due to this matter still not being settled or brought to a peaceful conclusion among the parties involved, we've added this week's NHRA Lucas Oil Nationals predictions to the suspension...  Hopefully this will all clear up in time for Franky & Felicia to return to this page by the end of August, for them to provide us with their predictions for the Chevrolet Performance U.S. Nationals at Indianapolis, IN... We sincerely  apologize to all of you who were looking forward to Franky's & Felicia's NHRA Lucas Oil Nationals picks today. We're trying our very best  to sort this matter out as soon as humanly possible. Franky appreciates all the supportive emails you've sent that we have forwarded to him. Although in the name of fair reporting, we must admit that we've received many emails from you, expressing positive feedback due to Franky's lengthy suspension. There's lots of mixed emotions concerning this matter.




Break the conventional chains which bind you to the belief that the only things in this world that exist are those we're able to touch and see in daylight. Ever heard of quantum physics?- Many credible physicists and scientists from the world's most prestigious of learning institutions now believe that parallel universes exist all around us-- We are likely surrounded by spectacular space, time, energy, and matter anomalies that boggle the brain, proving that what was once thought to be fantasy and fiction, can now be believed as truth and fathomable fact... We offer you a slice of hard science, combined with sporadic sprinklings of paranormal phenomena, as we here at Drag Racing Underground, proudly present to you...TALES OF THE PHANTOM RACER...Step out of the narrow-minded mist that encircles those who wear their stagnate skepticism like an outdated peach-colored leisure suit, and allow yourself the freedom to follow the adventures of drag racing's infinite and most indestructible spirit of the afterlife... Pull up a chair, toss your inhibitions aside, and ride along with one Sebastian Conrad, strong spirited eternal speed freak extraordinaire. 


Last week's episode told of how our favorite metaphysical/afterlife drag racing dream team were assigned by the Heavenly Drag Racing Association for a truly revolutionary mission  -- one that finally facilitated Maria's many requests to the H.D.R.A. administration, to give her the opportunity to drive a race car in competition. This mission required that the team compete in the Darkside Drag Racing Association's 'Planet X Program' -- a program featuring ONLY female drivers from the darkside of the drag racing afterlife, who race and behave in fiendish fashion... It's a beach dragster bikini league that subscribes to a sleazy, beatnik "beach party" culture of hedonistic depravity, while serving as one of the darkside afterlife's toughest of sand digger drag racing sanctioned competitions. Maria was fortunate enough to put current sand digger champ 'Dastardly Darla' on the trailer in a 'too-close-for-comfort' sand dragster duel, however, now she and our do-gooder crew find themselves in a tricky situation, as the race's 'after party' has kicked into a beatnik affair of hyper-sleazy metaphysically accelerating degenerating activity, resulting in downright uncomfortable social consequences for our morally upstanding team!!!...

It's a race 'after party' that feeds entirely on depraved debauchery!!! This darkside shindig has become difficult for our do-gooders to endure!!!  'Dastardly Darla' and all the darkside girls are dancing in their skimpy bikinis in a lewd manner to a blaring manic beatnik beat. All the gruesome darkside guys are panting heavily while lustfully watching the women dance about in shameful, gyrating fashion. A bikini wearing Maria bravely decides that for the sake of the mission, she'll keep up her 'low-life lady' masquerade, and join in on the hedonistic dancing. Sticking around to endure this depraved 'after party', gives our do-gooder crew a better chance of further infiltrating this unruly gang, and gaining valuable opposition intelligence. All the gruesome beatnik guys are occasionally rotating their heads at sinister speed, as they continuously drool like dogs in heat at the dancing women!!!

Some of the beatnik guys, including 'Dastardly Darla's' mechanic Slitzy, take notice that our crew of fellows, Larry, Sebastian, Fred and Peter, are the ONLY guys on the beach who AREN'T drooling, panting and spinning their heads in lewd lust for the dancing gals like the rest of the beatniks at the party are... Slitzy approaches our crew in his filthy, tattered shorts, along with several other hedonistic hoodlums, and speaks up "Hey!! What's up wit you lame-oh cats?!? Why ain't you diggin' all the chick-a-dees dancing at warp speed?!? Are you a bunch of squares or sumpthin'?!?"... Then another one of the hoodlums, named Stosh, wipes green drool from his face and says to our crew, "We know that youse are not like us!!! We thinks you're all phony imposters from the Heavenly Drag Racing Association, and youse are here for some kind of ulterior undercover motive that ain'ts on the low-fife groove!!! You're just spying on us Darkside Drag Racing Association hoodlums!!!"... Suddenly the music stops, and all the bikini wearing beatnik girls, and Maria too, in her pink bikini, stop their rambunctious sleazy dancing. Maria can clearly see that something's going down and it is NOT good!!!...

Slitzy walks up to Maria and says, "You ain't fooling us, chick-a-dee, not anymore anyways. You did a good job of pretending to be a sleaze for a while, but we're on to all of you now!!! When we saw that your boys weren't diggin' on the ghoulish groovy-girl hedonistic dance scene like we all do, we figured it out!!!  And now you're all going to be our prisoners!!! YA DIG?!?!"... Maria can't help but to look aghast... Then 'Dastardly Darla' gets up in Maria's face, and aggressively shoves Maria's bare shoulders and shouts "I"M GONNA ENJOY THIS!!! I'M GONNA MAKE YOU AND YOUR CREW OF DOPEY HEAVENLY DO-GOODERS SQUIRM AND SUFFER UNDER ME AND MY BOYS' GREASY SLEAZY THUMBS!!! NOW YOU'RE OUR ETERNAL PRISONERS, BABYCAKES!!!"

Slitzy looks Fred The Wrench in the eyes and dictates, "To start your eternal service to our needs, this chunky-monkey mechanic guy is gonna teach us all his tricks, all the knowledge he has, that enabled him to tune their sand digger to beat ours!!!"... Fred musters up his courage and replies, "Like heck I will, you low-life bum!!!"... With that, Slitzy punches Fred across the lip... "HEY, WAIT A MINUTE!!!" shouts Sebastian, "NOBODY ROUGHS-UP OUR FRED LIKE THAT, BUSTER!!!"... Then sleazeball Stosh walks up to Sebastian and says, "Oh really? Are you the group's hero-boy or sumpthin'? I'll show you what we do to hero-boys like you!!!"... Stosh wrestles Sebastian to the ground and they roll around, throwing punches and fighting with fervor... "I don't like this one bit!!!" squawks Peter The Parrot... "Me neither" chimes in Maria... Even our usually calm, cool and collected crew leader Larry Lamb's woolly face appears consumed with worry and despair, as he tries desperately to think of someway out of this mess...

An invisible supernatural force picks Sebastian off the ground and moves him and all our do-gooder crew members, and lines them up along the sand drag strip's concession stand... "I CAN'T CONTROL MY BODY!!!" says Fred The Wrench... "Either can I!!" squawks Peter The Parrot... "It feels like unseen apparitions are holding us and restricting our movement." adds Sebastian... "I feel very helpless and vulnerable!" interjects Maria in her pink bikini... "These darskside sand dragging beatniks have more metaphysical abilities than I would have ever imagined!" blurts Larry Lamb... "Ha Ha Ha" laughs 'Dastardly Darla in an evil tone "You do-gooders should have split after you and your lame chick driver beat me in the sand dragster race -- But you didn't -- And we realized that you aren't real sleaze swingers like us when the party kicked into high gear, and all your boys weren't drooling like dogs for the chicks, it was obvious to us right then and there, that you're covert intelligence phonies from the heavenly side of the drag racing afterlife!!!"... "Yeah!" concurs Slitzy as he grabs hold of Fred The Wrench's throat, "Listen, chubs! You're going to teach us every detail of your engine tuning techniques, or we're gonna torture your teammates with such brutal sorcery, that their screams of pain will echo throughout all the millions of parallel universes of the drag racing afterlife!!"... "You better do exactly as he says." says an acquiescing sounding Larry Lamb to Fred The Wrench  "I never thought I'd hear myself say this, but it looks like we've finally been overcome by the forces of evil and must serve their every whim!!!"... Only Sebastian notices that after leader Larry Lamb spouted those uncharacteristic discouraging words, he gave him an ever so slight wink of his eye...

 

Yes, my dear friends, this is the mysterious mind-bending-hereafter rebirth, and puzzling parallel universe relocation of the bewildering being, energy, and entity we call THE PHANTOM RACER...  Looks like the sleazy sand dragster race 'after party' of hedonistic depravity has came to an abrupt halt, as the low-life beatniks of the Darkside Drag Racing Association's sanctioned scene, have realized that our crew aren't part of their gruesome group, but are really do-gooders sent on an intelligence gathering assignment from the Heavenly Drag Racing Association!!!  And now all the creeps, including 'Dastardly Darla' and her mechanic Slitzy, and buddy sleazeball Stosh have claimed our gang as prisoners, damning them to be their enslaved servants for all eternity!!! WILL FRED THE WRENCH REALLY BE FORCED TO TEACH THESE LOW-LIFES ALL HIS ENGINE TUNING TIPS?!? HAS LEADER LARRY LAMB REALLY ACCEPTED DEFEAT -- OR WAS HIS SLIGHT WINK OF THE EYE AN INDICATION THAT HE HAS SOMETHING UP HIS WOOLLY SLEEVE?!?! WHAT THE HECK IS GOING TO HAPPEN NEXT?!?!?... What's in store for our drag racing paranormal dream team as they continue to embark on unpredictable drag racing adventures throughout the parallel universes??... Can they all hold it together and successfully champion the powers of good??... Or will they fall victim to evil entities they cannot control???... These are just a few of the mind-twisting questions to be answered in future action-packed episodes of TALES OF THE PHANTOM RACER!!... There's more paranormal mystical and maniacal drag race mayhem coming your way!!... You definitely do not want to miss it...

This Fall season Drag Racing Underground brings you the race car transformation project of a lifetime!!...


The drag racing community must collectively condemn the deadly behavior of the Alt-Right Nazi movement. There's nothing "cool" about a rightwing-nutjob-bully driving an accelerating hot-rod Dodge Charger into a crowd of peace activists in Charlottesville, Virginia. Already we're seeing on social media and the so-called "dark internet", some rightwing jerks praising this as a new form of hot rodding to help further their cockeyed agenda of hate. I've been around the Mopar enthusiasts contingent for years, and I can guarantee you that the folks who I'm friends with from that scene, don't think there's anything heroic or just about using a Dodge muscle car to kill and maim the innocent. A woman named Heather Heyer was murdered, and 19 others were injured, when Alex Fields Jr. stepped hard on his beefy Dodge Charger's accelerator pedal, and intentionally plowed through an innocent crowd who didn't share his brand of rightwing conservative views. Fields' mother said that she had no idea of her son's violent intent, and thought he was just going to another Donald Trump rally -- I really don't understand why this garbage is going on. This is criminal -- Alex Fields Jr. doesn't represent the muscle car contingent. He represents America's cockeyed haters, he reminds me of the cyberbully fools we encounter on the drag racing internet --they are not the majority by any stretch of the imagination, they are the minute minority, and we all need to strongly condemn their destructive behavior... They are insecure cowards who "act out" with "man-baby" belligerence to compensate for their own shortcomings... I absolutely refuse to associate all the Dodge Chargers I see each and every single day with this heinous act of cowardly murder -- I refuse to let that happen...

 

 


Being that today is in fact Sunday, we present our regularly scheduled "THE SUNDAY FUNNIES THAT AREN'T NECESSARILY THAT FUNNY AT ALL" feature, to help in eliminating the sic and grotesque epidemic of drag racing internet trolling and bullying...

Today is the return of the "SUNDAY FUNNIES" feature here on the blog, though admittedly, the way in which blowhard Marvin conducts himself in life, and especially on the drag racing internet, the situation isn't necessarily that, ahem, funny at all-- As a matter of fact, Marvin's brand of belligerent behavior often has negative consequences for the collective drag racing scene... Marvin aggressively seeks out internet postings by women and young folk who he deems to be 'pesky' (because they don't fit in to his preferred ornery oriented demographic), and tries desperately to pick apart and dissect each and every single word they typed, often claiming the facts are wrong, even if he knows that they are really right-- Anything to create a confrontation laced with lewd language and 'f bombs' is merry sport for Marvin (using 'f bombs' sure makes Marvin feel more 'macho' and more like he's a 'big man')... When dorks like Marvin get behind their computer keyboard, and just type negativity with their fingers, it never results in anything positive for the drag racing community, because we don't need the blowhard brand of 'debby-downer' dingbat dissent that fools like Marvin dispense 24/7 on the internet. I do hope that some will take this lesson to heart, because it's a lesson that needs to be learned by those who constantly pollute the drag racing internet with endless oodles of mindless nagging negativity. Let's get smart in 2017. Let's work together to help make the drag racing internet a 'family friendly' place where more people can enjoy it and be enriched and enlightened by it. Let's put an end to Marvin's brand of blowhard bullying...

 

 

Marvin is a mess! The problem of blowhard bullies like him on the drag racing internet needs to be addressed!


Today we're going to take a slight departure from the world of drag racing, to promote the wholesome family fun you'll find this weekend at the Middlesex County Fair at 655 Cranbury Road in East Brunswick, New Jersey. I was invited there yesterday and had a ball of a time. For those of you reading this who live around my neck of the woods, I strongly suggest you load the family up in the car and visit this festive event. Today (Saturday) the hours are from 11am-11pm, and tomorrow (Sunday) the hours are 11am-10pm (with a fireworks finale at 9:30pm). There's so much to do at the fair -- let me give you a list of some of my favorite things about the fair -- As you can see by the photo posted below, there's the 4-H club's small animal tent, where I love to pet all the darling guinea pigs. Other fabulous features include the exciting rides of all kinds located on the marvelous midway, all the wide variety of exotic foods for sale (I go to the fair for the Greek treats), the Academy of Music Entertainment Tent, the Marvelous Mutts Entertainment Ring, the Pro Wrestling Tent, all the agricultural and educational tents (many of them hosted by the 4-H club), Cub Scouts -- Boy Scouts-- and Girl Scouts related activities, I could go on and on... I really do recommend the Middlesex County Fair for all my readers in the New Jersey region. For more information you can visit middlesexcountyfair.com

 

 

Yours truly petting the darling guinea pigs yesterday at the Middlesex County Fair's 4-H Club small animal tent.


Today is "FEEDBACK FRIDAY", meaning I deal with emails that my assistant Stephanie and I receive from readers regarding our most recent blogs... Let's get right to your feedback... Yesterday's blog featuring our aggressive anti-road rage campaign caused an onslaught of mixed-emotion driven emails. Cindy from Niota, TN wrote, "I come from a family of marine biologists, so I can definitely appreciate you stating the facts that sharks only kill one person every two years, while road rage kills or injures 15,000 per year. People should be a lot more cautious of getting in a road rage altercation than being afraid of sharks at the seashore!"... Wednesday's TALES OF THE PHANTOM RACER serial series resulted in lots of you writing in. Daphhe from all the way in Volos, Greece said, "I hope in the future that I can attend a sand dragster bikini beach party, but not with the kind of bad beatniks in your crazy story!"-- Once again Gary from Wellington, OH wrote in, "Hooray for Fred The Wrench standing up to Slitzy and telling him that he's not going to share his engine tuning secrets, even if it did get Fred slugged in the mouth!"... Substitute Stephanie's snapshot of the day inspired Dino from Brooklyn, NY to write,  "I love the photo of Doc and Stephanie together. I met them both at Island Dragway. Two of the sweetest girls on earth."-- On the other side of the opinion fence, Henry from Mooringsport, LA said, "How many more times are you going to run that stupid photo of Doc and Stephanie? I'm sick of seeing that pic of those two dizzy hens!"... My blog congratulating Antron Brown, Robert Hight and Drew Skillman on their NHRA Northwest Nationals' win caused Darrin from Ennis, TX  to say, "Thanks to Doc for giving NHRA racers the recognition they deserve!"... My blog announcing that Drag Racing Underground officially declares August as the month we celebrate our colorful accelerating drag racing culture, had Matt from Butler, PA chime in, "I'm going to take Doc's advice and take one of my co-workers to the drag races. Doc always gives us good ideas we'd never think of ourselves. She's the best!"... Our so-called "SUNDAY FUNNIES THAT AREN'T NECESSARILY THAT FUNNY AT ALL" managed to get Roberta from Baltimore, MD in a bit of an angry frenzy, she typed, "Fools like Marvin are potty mouths. If he really thinks foul language makes a man a hero, he must either be a dopey drunk or on hard drugs!"... Thanks to all of you who wrote in with comments. Even though there's no way we have room to print all your emails, we want you to know that all your comments and suggestions are taken into consideration... Keep those emails comin' (by using the "Contact Us" link atop the page), whether you agree or disagree with mine, or any of our substitute guest bloggers' opinions, we're genuinely interested in your feedback... We just ask that you please keep your emails short and to the point, no rambling please, and please also include where you're from, we often find the location of where folks are writing us from to be sort of interesting.

OUR AGGRESSIVE ANTI-ROAD RAGE CAMPAIGN-- LET'S SAVE LIVES!!!...

Posted by: lovely

Tagged in: Untagged 

Today we're posting our public service message campaign conceived by the concerned, creative and compassionate minds of Drag Racing Underground. We've certainly received critical acclaim for our previous "Take a Date to the Drags" public service message campaign, this campaign however, is designed to tackle a far more serious matter, a matter of life and death, an issue that must be addressed in order to save lives on America's busy highways and byways. We're talking about the growing problem of "ROAD RAGE"... Did you know that on average, there's only one shark attack fatality every two years? However, road rage is linked to well over 200 deaths and 13,000+ injuries per year! Please take a brief moment to absorb these startling statistics, and contemplate just how dangerous the issue of road rage has become in today's "automotive oriented culture". When "hot heads" get behind the wheel of a car, they're a genuine threat to the safety of you, your kids, and every member of your precious family. Please do a Google search of "road rage" and get yourself educated about it, then openly discuss the subject with all those you love-- educate them, advise them to not fall prey to this "killer epidemic" ravaging our modern society. Now is definitely the time to address this unsettling matter with your beloved kin. Hopefully we'll all be able to work together to make a difference. Please do the right thing by sharing this blog with as many people possible. Let's be smart and do everything we humanly can to save lives!! It's high time to tackle this serious issue and the deranged danger it imposes on our civilized way of life. Thanks...



Road Rage is a big problem. We're doing our part to bring attention to this unsettling issue. Spread the word!!
