    Old grey hairs still alive and kickin butt

    Please all you youngsters don't close the coffin lid yet on us grey hairs :lol:
    My friend here in La. runs a derlic by most HOTDOG standerands. It's a 1949 Ford truck weighs over 3,000 lbs and still has the original frame and ladder bars installed in 1969, it does have a strut front end, all steel body with only a fiberglass frontend, roll up original glass, etc with a 572 b/blk on gas no addatives, it normally runs 5.40/5.43. Now Jerral Barnett had a heart attack 2 yrs. ago and open heart surgery, he's now 67 yrs. old. 2 weeks ago at Twin Cities he won the money in SP, ran the number with change every pass and worse light .513 all night.



    That bring us to Jimmy Smith a fellow member here and my best friend in Batesville Ms, where my other house is. He's soon to be 69 yrs. old, had a heart attack 4 yrs. ago and open heart surgery 4 bypasses.
    So last Sat. afternoon he went to Holly Springs and ran the 7.00 class qualfied #2 and won the 7.00 class with a pro tree 4.19 worse light all afternoon. Finished early and decided to go 35 miles up the road to Byhalia race track, decided to run the SP class 5.00 tree. He dials in a few #'s in the delay box and ran the number with change all night, worse light in eliminations 5.08, won the money there also. Double down in the same day at 2 different tracks how awsome is that?

    Congrats Jarrel and Jimmy for keeping us old grey hairs on the map
    And again youngsters don't close the coffin lid et.
