NHRA Thunders Into The Wine Country Of Sonoma

The 30th annual NHRA Toyota Sonoma Nationals featured several surprises. The biggest was Robert Hight in Funny Car. Driving his "California Highway Patrol" tribute Chevy Camaro, Hight set the drag racing world on its ears in the second round of qualifying Friday night.
