The gates opened early at Pacific Raceways for the O’Reilly Auto Parts Northwest National NHRA races. Team members were there to open the NAE™ booth and dress up our jet car for public view.  Located on a main thoroughfare; thousands of avid race fans stopped by our display during the day to talk to team members and take lots of pictures.


This is a huge event for race fans and we were visited by many folks who are long time friends of our project. We also had the opportunity to talk to scores of families who were very interested in our goal of setting new world landspeed records.

Ed Shadle, driver/owner, Valerie Thompson, co-driver and newest team member, and Alexis DeJoria driver of the Patron Tequila Top Fuel Funny Car, were on hand to greet the public and sign autographs.  They were also interviewed by local television show, KING TV5
