IHRA NZIs it getting a bit chilly where your are for this Thanksgiving? We're pleased to report that the high today is forecast to be 73 degrees, with zero percent chance of precipitation.

That's the good news. The bad news: It's in Meremere, New Zealand, which has its summer when we have our winter.

But there's more good news: They have an IHRA drag strip there.

So while you are digesting turkey and possibly contemplating shoveling a little show, please enjoy a look at the 2015 New Zealand Nationals from Meremere, where the track, and the country, got its first 300mph pass – 307 mph at 4.8 seconds.
