We had a Jeg's Super Quick race here this past weekend. Guys were slowing their cars down to run 4.50 in the 1/8.

We had a guy in a Colbalt running Super Pro 1/4 with us. I think I saw him go 7.37 @ 186.

Some bracket cars are running faster than prostock was running 20 years ago.

I used to be able to make Quick 16 events with the 385 in my altered, nowadays running 7.90's, I don't bother to back up to the trailer. I started putting together a nasty 434 but it is only going to be a short amount of time before I won't be able to make the show with that.

Back in the day @ Holly Springs if they didnt have enough cars in footbrake they'd let motorcycles run in it.

One night I had to run a turbochargered bike that dialed in a 475 :shock: .

My car was running 750's, talk about flying by me, DAMN that shiit was dangerous. He broke out :x

That digger hits you from behind and he would be sitting in your passanger seat. Kinda tough to hit the brakes on the big end thinking you got that covered. Must feel like your chained to a post when he goes by......
