You know you're having a good day at the track when you look out your passenger side window and see this: Shocked



Oh and I saw another fellow "Wicked" racer: Cool



Good times... Very Happy

My dial in was a 10.3...YEA BOY!!!

OH, but it was only 1/8th mile since the track kept 'weeping' water from the rain.

Laughing

Anyways, I was eliminated in the first round by .014 seconds.

Running brackets is tough! These guys are on it.

But I did have a few good lights in the .09x range.

I feel thing are progressing...

No, I did not break out,

but the guy I ran against was .014 of a second closer to his dial in than I was...

May is solid, she launches straight as an arrow.

All that caster is paying off. Probably need to start looking at beefing up the CV joints.

We'll see how she does when we start getting down to the 13 second times.

That's my goal for May, to be able to run 13 seconds and look good doing it.

Kay will be the 10 second banshee.

I secured a spot in line for Kay with Doug at Deluxe Iron to have her 'badness' solidified.

Should be fun, It may take a few years, but I will get there and have a good time doing it.

That's what matters right...

Doug will have that car done up nice, and done the right way.

And having fun is what matters.
