Ran our last points race last night. Made it to twelve cars left, broke out :x , went a 9.19 on a 9.22 dial. Didn't get on the brakes enough. :shock: Well al least I finally got the car sorted out so maybe next year will be better.

We had our last points race yesterday. It was great. #1 and #2 in our class ended up racing in the final. #2 won and took the championship. I went out at 4 cars and finished 3rd in points. Not bad for my first year in points and only second full year driving. I'm happy . Won 2 races, finished in the money numerous times. Made enough to cover what I spent this year.

Bob Frey was at the track filming us for a sportsman track of the month segment that will air during the NHRA sportsman show on Oct. 1st. It was great having him announce some while he was there. I wish I could have recorded what he was saying about me. It's not every day you get a living legend in our sport at your track.

Not finished racing this year just done with points, can't wait until next year to try it again.

Well been at the bracket finals the past two days and the car is running well. Thursday went 9.09,9.06, 9.05 8) . Friday first pass 8.99 :shock: my first 8 second pass. Then went 9.02,9.06. Loving it. Getting ready to start running in a few hours.

I'll get someone to help me post a pic of the 8 second time slip.

Later guys.

Thats cool Beast. Nice turn around the other year!
The last few months have been pretty good for me too. I've been lucky enough to make a few bucks and get ahead eventhough I had the major repair in the spring. I still haven't gotten a converter (last thing needed) yet so I can run my single stage fogger. Just haven't wanted to take the chance of hurting the motor while I'm trying to get the nos figured out.
