csx8506 03-08-2014 05:35 PM

Went and took my road test for my Class A CDL and passed it on my second try. Now Im looking at getting a job truck driving. Gotta get these bills paid somehow

Swiley383 03-08-2014 07:30 PM

Scooterz 03-14-2014 11:28 AM

I am still here... sorry it has been awhile...I think about you guys all the time though. Harb!! still need to finish your model (63 440 Ram charger)Riley & I work on it from time to time. Still boxing, but working w/ kids now (my body is too old to keep sparing w/the big dudes). Got a set of heads in machine shop for my 68 Chevelle & plan on doing some work & Paint soon on it. Work is good- still a fact rep for BowTech. Everything is okay... wife is good, still trying to pray every day & rely on God for grace, common sense, & continued sobriety. I miss you dudes!! Good to hear from ya all (DD, Harb, Swiley,Beast, Mopar, Juice, Lively, etc... all the "sharks"... just to name a few).

Dang it. I might be up in Iowa during that time. I start my new job on the 24th of this month.

I am going to be driving for TMC transport out of Des Moines Iowa. From everything I had heard and read its a great company to drive for and the pay aint bad either. They say for the first year you can make from $40,000 to $60,000

Swiley383 03-15-2014 08:45 AM

Dirka I may start running up there on the regular bases so I will let you know if head up there and we can meet if your in town.

Sounds good to me. I leave next Saturday for Iowa. I do believe starting lastnight they will be racing every Friday night from now till seasons end.

Swiley383 03-15-2014 01:19 PM

I have always ran at music city raceway ( union hill) but iam a about the same distance or a little less to clarksville. I am suppose to be off on Fridays now so I thought I would give that track a try.

DirkaDirka 03-15-2014 01:25 PM

Its not a bad track. I think the most that the guys complain about is that they really dont clean off the shut down area after they run the circle track so there is a little bit of red clay on it.

Swiley383 03-15-2014 02:31 PM

I have heard clarksville hooks up better than the hill. How is the car count?

DirkaDirka 03-15-2014 02:57 PM

The car count is decent I think. Another thing I hear drivers complain about is how they have street cars go down the track with street tires on too during the brackets.

They got some nice cars show up. The fastest I seen there were in the 6s.

Swiley383 03-15-2014 03:06 PM

Same thing at the hill with street tires last weekend I saw a dragster run a 4.70. Lots of foot brake cars running well into the 6s.

DirkaDirka 03-15-2014 04:02 PM

Wow. There aint nothing that fast here lol. I did notice that they have two buybacks I believe.

TheRabbit 03-18-2014 07:03 AM

Mopar sent me a mssg on the web site. I think the new forum has him meesed up. I told him about the new forum so I hope he can get logged in soon.
I can log in on my phone and my lap top, but haven't been able to on my home computer. I'm a gear head not a computer geek! lol

Hey you coming up for March Madness? Its looking like I am gonna be in town still on that weekend. Let me know and hopefully we can meet up cuz I was actually thinking about going to that on Saturday anyways now.

Swiley383 03-20-2014 05:15 PM

I plan on running on Friday the 28th if all goes as planed. I drive a red nova that is in bad need of a paint job. I will let you know for sure next week hopefully we can meet. The car still needs an oil change other than that I am ready to go. Been driving the wife crazy talking about going. Hope my reaction time are not to bad.

Swiley383 03-20-2014 05:26 PM

I had the March madness wrong I looked at an old schedule looks like just a regular program.

DirkaDirka 03-20-2014 10:19 PM

I just looked again and I could swear they had the March Madness going on the 29th.

If you want I got a garage where you can change the oil in. Got a jack and stands and some tools.

Let me know if you are gonna run the 28th. Would love to meet and see ya run.

Swiley383 03-21-2014 07:41 AM

same here I don't know if they canceled it or what I just assumed I looked at an old schedule. I am going to change the oil this weekend. Sounds good I would like to meet. Lets hope the wheather coperates.

DirkaDirka 03-21-2014 07:16 PM

I hope the weather cooperates also. just looked and we got a 50% chance of scattered showers Friday.

Swiley383 03-21-2014 07:37 PM

Let's hope for the best

DirkaDirka 04-20-2014 03:51 PM

Happy Easter Guys.

Well I made it home for the holiday and am going back out this evening. I have to deliver a load at 10:30 tonight in Dickson, TN.

Swiley383 04-20-2014 04:23 PM

Glad you got home for Easter. We still need to meet at the track one Friday night I blew my motor up 2 Saturdays ago so I will spectate.

DirkaDirka 04-20-2014 05:04 PM

Yeah I got home around 8 friday night and was to tired to do anything plus being gone for a couple weeks just wanted to stay home. I will definitely let you know when I am home on a friday so we can meet. I know a good spot to spectate right next to the track. I usually sit in the back of my truck on a chair since there really aint stands on that side of the track lol

MEMRACING62 04-25-2014 08:22 AM

Hello all...just passing through......good luck in your new trade dennis

fla1976 04-28-2014 06:03 PM

^ x2 Good luck & safe driving out there.

roadkill2 05-03-2014 08:57 AM

Just figured out the new format . . Haven't had time to mess with it because our racing season started the 5th of April . . Bad day at Black rock . . Won first round (9.15) but got #6 rod in the lights . . Had to race the pickup(s) to keep abreast of the points . . Got the new bullet back in a week ago last Thursday and had "New Car Blues", car hooked better, but after 3 carbon copy qualifying passes,(9.30) submarined on the first round pass, 9.27 on a .30 dial and then a 9.21 on a .27 dial in the buyback . . Plus redbulbed -.002 on the buyback . . Got two more races in this series and then we'll probably go up on the mountain for certain selected events . .

Glad to be back . .

TheRabbit 05-04-2014 06:25 AM

Looks like you're living up to the Boogie Nights nickname! lol

Hope you enjoy the new ride and get to put a lot of miles on it. Be careful out there.

TheYellaBrick 05-04-2014 08:58 PM

Mia!
 
I have been away from here for awhile too. Granted I know most of you were on here waaay before I came along. How's everyone doing? Never met any of you guys face to face. Though I have spoken to a couple guys over the phone. Mark(mopar1968) & (fla1976) hope everybody is doing good! Kris

fla1976 06-22-2014 10:53 AM

Still kind of a ghost town on here. Hope everyone is just too busy racing or working on their projects. Trying to fabricate some sheet metal for my latest project.
