** Hello, My name is Randy. I got back into racing so my son Kevin could understand what I felt back in the day. WE built the red & white truck to run f/b at the local tracks. My wife bought the gray truck for me for my 50th birthday. **Thank you Lord for the GREAT family and friends that I have.
**08 was a great racing year. We had a lot of fun. I raced the gray truck this year with very good results. I didn't get to race that much this year due to some family health issues but all are doing well now.
**09 has started out to be another great year with a win first time out in Pro Class at London Drag Way on 4-25-09.
**10 started out slow. It took awhile to rebuild the truck. We went through the motor, new Dedenbear trans, fresh torque converter, new drive shaft, new gears and bearings in the rearend, and a new set of Hoosier 30X10.5 Radial Slicks. So far the changes are working great. First race made it down to 4 cars. Still have a lot to learn with all the changes. Won Modified ET and The Modified ET - Super ET Run Off at Mt Park Dragway on 7-24-10.
** Took my truck to S&S Race Cars in Bowling Green Ky to get my winter time projects done. After George got done with it I took it to Beach Bend for T&T. Right off the trailer it ran 6.395 @ 105.36 with a 1.355 60'. My best pass before this was 6.482. Thanks George!!
*** 2011 is off to a good start. I switched to E85 with a conversion from Mark Sullens E85 carbs. I took the carb out of the box, bolted it on and got down to 4 cars first time out. I also ran a new best of 6.340. I think with a little tuning I will be running another new best soon!!
I took my truck to S&S Race Cars this spring for a new rear end setup. They did a chrome molly round tube back half with a Moser fab 9 housing,axles and Aerospace brakes.For tires I went with 15x33 Hoosiers and Draglites. I can't wait to try it out!!
