Uncle Joe Benson at the 2004 Good Guys Nitro Nationals.
June 25, 2004: Once again, Uncle Joe was part of the opening ceremonies at the 7th Pomona Nitro Nationals at the Fairplex in Pomona. No, he didn't drive one of the Nitro Top Fuelers Under the Lights, but he did get real friendly with a microphone!

Old school rods and flames!
Thanks for the autograph, no you can't have my ice cream!
J.B. with famed NHRA announcer Mike English & his crew.
Good Sign #1: Intricate detailing on your engine.
Bad Sign #1: Unc's working on your engine.
Guess who had a model of this one!
Racing at night makes for great entertainment, but lousy pictures!
