We get our fill of Brand X rides at the All-Star Nationals at zMAX Dragway just outside of Charlotte, North Carolina, as it hosts both sides of the ProMedia drag racing fence-the NMRA and the NMCA-therefore, we get our quota in one weekend. However, the All-Star Nationals differs from the Joliet NMRA/NMCA Super Bowl of Street Legal Drag Racing as NMRA and NMCA winners don't face-off against its class counterparts. There's still plenty to see at the All-Star Nationals.

Simply entering the zMAX Dragway is a spectacle. Its sheer magnitude dwarfs this event, even with both NMRA and NMCA racers on the grounds, a car show featuring all makes, and a large number of vendors. Moreover, with the NMCA racers in attendance, fans get a chance to see several NMCA Mustang racers face-off against other makes, which is always fun, especially on a four-wide dragstrip.

Naturally, the temps in early August were on the boil, but our cameras didn't melt, so check out the captions for all the details.
