What a drag.

Whoever you are, I can relate. That is exactly how I felt having to sit through my mom’s “Women’s Club” meetings when I was your age.

[Found via a miscellaneous Google Image Search for Pomona Raceway.]

    nursem– She’s got “the LOOK,” alright.

    SG– Heh. Saw that. Scots don’t put up with crap.

    Aside from that, I did some work for the Pomona Raceway during the recession of the 90s: the VIP Suites Tower and the acoustic barriers. Fun projects. One of my pretty pictures was shown on national TV.

    Dan– The funniest part about the NHRA Pomona Raceway is that the City of Pomona/State of California required us to provide for handicap parking adjacent to the bleachers, dependent upon the maximum number of spectators. LOL. We had to show over an ACRE of handicap-accessible parking spaces right outside the gate you see in the background.

    We also had to get approvals for the 20-foot tall sound-attenuation walls at the blast end of the track. They were built with concrete blocks with slots and padding in them to mitigate echoes. The VIP Suites Tower has perforated metal panels with padding on its face also, but you can’t see it from the photos.

    One of the city planners couldn’t comprehend it: “Where do the sound go?! It’s gotta go somewhere!”
