In this edition of "Throwback Thursday," Luke and Kevin McKenna revisit 2001.  Obviously the dominating story of the year came on September 11.  The duo discusses where they were on that fateful day, the impacts on their lives, and (on a more trivial scale) the effect of 9/11 on the sport of drag racing.  As usual, they break down the biggest stories in the year of sportsman racing: from the NHRA professional ranks, to the Lucas Oil Series, the IHRA and big dollar bracket action.
