Fathers day kicked ass today at the track. Not only was the weather absolutely beautiful, but the traction was better than usual, (for slippery rock).

Posted a new 'best' for the car et wise. 10.15 @ 132. 60 foot was only a 1.44 tho.


First round of elims, lit the bulb. 4.76 red. No biggie. bought into the consolation race, and went 5 rounds to the finals. Then lit the bulb in the final round while running a 10.26 on a 10.26....go figure.......
In either case, got a trophy, a sticker for the window, and 25 bucks back!!!!!!
Momma and the kids came down to watch, along with some other friends, so all in all, it was a super day!
Hope everyone elses fathers day was as great!

Congratulations on your new best ET.Its always great to set a new one.Sounds like your knockin on a 9 second pass
At what point does that issue with your cage kick in or did you get that fixed.

With my luck, the 9.9999999999999 pass will happen in like October or September when the really good air comes back, at the end of the season........More then likely, NOT at slippery rock.

Maybe next weekend when we trailer down to Cedar Falls, in Iowa, it'll happen. Who knows.

The cage is NOT 9 sec legal, but it's safe (for now).

Another winter project for next year.......Yeah......getting closer,for sure!

If you have a full cage it will be 9 second legal for Cedar Falls. IHRA does not require the chassis to be certified till 9 flat.

Thanks guys!
Found out, (or more, kinda figured out/fanaggled/whatever), that Tri State raceway is only 1 hour east of Cedar Falls, and they run on sunday............


Looks like after racing on saturday, gonna load up, do a little overnite camping gig, and roll into Tri State for racing on sunday too! A whole weekend of racing........It doesn't get any better than this!!!!!!!


I'm thinking that traction isn't going to pose a problem this weekend!

(upon saying that, I'll probably drive the 5+ hours to Iowa, and get rained out).......
