Uncle Joe Benson at work & play at the 2007 NHRA Winternationals.

February 10 - 11, 2007: It wasn't quite as wet as the legendary 2004 NHRA WinterNationals, but the 2007 NHRA CARQUEST Winternationals Drag Races at the Auto Club Raceway in Pomona did see some serious moisture! Through it all, J.B. was rocking with the KLOS Cool Patrol and NHRA Division 7 Super Gas Champion Randy Balough, driver of the Uncle Joe's Racing Super Gas Corvette. And yes, there was another Harley giveaway between the showers on Sunday! Rock & Roll!

Feeling good!
