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 the long awaited (or long dreaded, depending on your personal opinion) return of Franky & Felicia's picks for this weekend's Auto Club NHRA Finals, resulted in an onslaught of very varied opinions from droves of our readers. Hank from Joliet, IL sent us a long winded email, here's just an excerpt of his essay length writings, "It's about damn time you brought Franky and Felicia back with their NHRA predictions. Drag Racing Underground has been suspending Franky for more races than ever before. Just because Franky's a true blue American bad ass, doesn't mean you should keep suspending him from duty. The president of our great nation is the biggest and toughest bad ass this country has ever seen, and nobody suspends him from the job for it! Let the man be a real man. Stop punishing poor Franky for being what a real man is supposed to be!" --  Eugene from Chester, PA said, "Franky and Felicia are the only reason I read your drag racing blog page. Don't be putting Franky on suspension every single time he gets in a little tussle or arrested. John Wayne would have been proud to have Franky as his drinking buddy. I like the way he carries himself. I don't care if him and his lady friend Felicia hardly ever predict the correct winners, they make me laugh out loud." -- On the far opposite side of the opinion fence, Jeff from Gainesville, GA writes, "I was hoping that Franky's multiple suspensions would finally result in termination. When I saw Franky's and Felicia's return for the Pomona finals, I practically hurled my Waffle House breakfast. I'm sick of hearing about the Mets baseball team, Billy Joel, and all that other New York nonsense those two jerky punks say! Their knowledge of drag racing is a complete joke!" -- And Ellen from Montreal, Canada said, "Felicia really offended me when she called Guns N' Roses 'flaky hippies'! She's the flake! Her comparing of her own legs and ankles to Taylor Swift's was the most ridiculous thing she's ever done. I have just as hard of a time digesting Felicia's garbage as I do Franky's. Please don't bring them back to do the NHRA predictions next year! Throw them out!" -- (editor's note: all the dozens of emails received regarding Franky & Felicia will be taken under consideration by Drag Racing Underground management in regards to whether or not they're asked to return to these pages for the 2018 NHRA season)... Wednesday's TALES OF THE PHANTOM RACER serial series resulted in lots of you writing in. Noemie from all the way in Antwerp, Belgium said, "The REAL Mantis materializing from the Halloween party platter sent chills up my spine! So scary for me to imagine! That gave me nightmares!"-- Once again Gary from Wellington, OH wrote in, "Last week I said that the series was getting a little lame. I completely change my opinion of this week's episode! There was lots of creepy paranormal stuff this time around. Keep it up!"... My blogs announcing that THE DIGS AT E'TOWN's "MONSTER BASH" nostalgia drag racing event, that was "rained out" for the second week in a row, and has now been rescheduled for this Sunday, November 12th, caused quite a few of you to write in. Tyler from Hazlet, NJ said, "Bummer that The Digs got rained out two weeks straight. I'm going to be there this Sunday to try again. I want to see one more Ida Gasser Shootout before winter!" -- Pat from Hollis, Queens wrote in, "I hope the weather is decent this weekend. I need my DIGS fix!"... 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...
