The 1/8th Mile E-mail by Luke Bogacki

Happy New Year!

Cue the kazoos, cheers , and welcome to 2018 - it's going to be a great year! A few things burning up in my little brain as we turn the calendar and get used to writing "2018":

What I'm talking about: We took a week off for the holidays, but we're back and this week's Sportsman Drag Racing Podcast is sure to cause a buzz. As you might imagine, there's not much to talk about in terms of recent developments in sportsman drag racing this time of year - so we made a list (that always gives people something to talk about)! Better yet: we've compiled THE LIST. It's the Bracket Racing Top 25. Who is number 1? Who got left off? Listen & subscribe on Apple Podcasts, our direct feed, Google Play, or Stitcher.

What I'm writing: My latest Science of Winning column appeared in volume 58 of National Dragster (page 34). In it, I do my best to describe what makes the NHRA U.S. Nationals so special, and how the annual Labor Day festival has gone from a week that I avoided like the plague for years to one of my three favorite events (along with the Million Dollar Race and the Spring Fling Million) on the racing calendar.

Quote that has my attention: "The words we use to describe experiences aren't the experiences. They're just the best verbal representation we can come up with." - Tony Robbins

What I'm reading: I scored big over Christmas. My 2018 reading list is already huge, and growing by the day, but here's where I'm likely to begin. You can look forward to my reviews in the coming weeks.

Other fun reading: If you're really hard up for material, you can read a bit about me as well. Todd Silvey at Drag Racing Scene contacted me a few months back about a feature within his regular Top Eliminator column (page 10). As usual, Todd did a great job with a story that goes a little bit deeper than the surface.
