Some Canada-Australia Détente?

I thought I might share this image of the “International Table” from the recent NHRA press conference held at Morton’s Steak House downtown Denver just before the start of the Mopar Mile-High Nationals.  

Wikopedia defines the word détente as:  “a  relaxing of tension between major powers — especially the particular thawing of relations.” (?)

Well it was hardly that — but I had a really great time exchanging stories (and trying to deceipher) what was being said by visiting Australian Media and gearheads Chad Head (center) and Luke Nieuwhof who were just beginning their 3-week road trip which will include  taking in the entire NHRA Western Swing.   Luke is the Media Relations Manager for ANDRA — we had a number of e-mail exchanges prior — so it was cool to finally meet in person.

PS:  Don’t forget we report all of the major ANDRA events on DragRaceCanada >> International Dateline:  HERE
