The sweetbird69 drag race team started out as a group of friends that know each other for a long time. They got a littlebit tired of seeing all those beautiful american muscle cars with 400 horsepower or more standing still on a classic car meeting where it's forbidden to spin your tires and burn some rubber. They wanted more action and decided to go and watch the dragracing events at the airstrip in Drachten. After seeing a couple of runs they got curious about how fast there cars would be at the quarter mile. So they decided to join the races to find out how fast their by their meaning "fast" streetmachines were at the strip. What they didn't know was that once you start racing, you get addicted to it, which results in bigger engines, more horsepower and spending lots of money and spare time in the garage to get your ride just a littlebit faster than your opponent. The drag racing scene is not so big in the Netherlands as in The United states, and it probably will be that way forever, but every year there are more people who bring their american muscle cars to the events in Drachten, so it's growing fast. And most of the people who started racing return every year to the strip again but then a little bit faster than the year before....
