I will be keeping the car now and not selling it. My friends told me that I would miss it the day it went down the driveway for good. So they talked me into it. And then I talked myself into a bigger motor and trans up grade and a lot of other changes. Funny how that happens on a slow winter day missing the sounds and smells of the track. Well everything seems to be coming together. I have a parts list and buying a new trailer for the car. I have talked with two guys who I truly trust and lean on a lot. Sat we will go over everything and I will make a call to Jegs and start the parts coming in. We will be making a 454 to a 496. Trans brake and re-build along with rear gear and brakes all the way around. No time line for when it will be done, but I know it will be right when it is. I am really looking forward to this spring and summer of racing and having fun. I want to give big thanks to Richard Sloan, Randy Hoskins and Bryan Browning for putting up with all the calls and the support over the years. It really means a lot to have great friends around you. See you on the next up date and have a safe 2009!
A lot of fast cars this weekend at London Raceway. Also a lot of folks at the track as well. I was thinking that the gas price would keep some of them away. Byran ran well the whole weekend, but some problems with the shifter did not allow us to get deep in the field. Best time was a 6.06.
Big 8 race this weekend in London Ky. The whole gang will be there and a great time will be had, as always when we are at the track. I love being at the track, some how after a long week on the job it is good to get away. And be around great friends. Bryan good luck this weekend we all have your back!!!
