The Nationals Came to Town!

The NHRA came to Joliet this weekend. Hubby and I spent Friday night smelling Nitro and holding our ears! It was great fun! I took over 400 photos and managed not to get a really bad sunburn! 
Here’s just a few of my favorite shots (it’s going to take me days to go through all those photos!)
