NHRA Sonoma Nationals by Ed & Jack & Toby & Noah

@ Sonoma Raceway

Shawn, Gregory and Bryson kindly invited us along to the Drag Racing at Sonoma Raceway. We all had a great time watching all the super fast cars. I have never seen anything move as fast as that in my life. I have never heard a noise that loud in my life.

Bonus Noah Photographs

Dad, can I have a shot of your camera to take pictures of the Racing Cars?

This is what I found when I got the photos off the camera! (Captions by Noah).
