|drvng200mph First week of spring semester is behind me. Can't wait until opening day at Da Grove (my home track). Been looking for something new to play with. Hot rubber and the smell of race fuel is the stuff that dreams are made of. Much happiness to all in their pursuit of style, rodding and speed. Be safe and peace be with you.

Member for: 11 years, 8 months, 3 days
I have been around racing since I was about six years old (about 43 years). My father made the mistake of taking me to Great Lakes Dragaway. I have been hooked ever since. I have been fortunate to have witnessed one of the greatest eras in drag racing history right at Union Grove, WI. I have seen the "Hollywood" royalty of drag racing legends.
Dropped out of college...funding ran out. So much for retraining. Time to do it like the old days...get out there and pound the pavement looking for work. Well...so much for the "old days"...lol I was pounding the pavement with my laptop...lol Seems not too many employers allow you to come in and fill out an app.
Anyhow, I found a decent job at a local business. I like it. Nowhere near what I was making when I got laid off. But...I am quite happy, close to home and some interesting things have happened since I began working there.
I am currently a full-time crew person on an eight second '70 Plymouth Barracuda. It was a chance meeting after a lengthy absence from the dragstrip. I asked the owner if he needed a hand. We have been together ever since. Maybe next season (2014) I will run a companion car. Right now, I am having the time of my life!
