Default The "BEAST" made it to the track today...

Made three passes. Two not so good driver rusty. The good one short shifted and eased up on the big end a little it went 9.34 at 141 .45. No tuning yet i think there is a 9.20 in it with a little work.

It,s warm enought in Michigan to race already? I thought it would still be too cold.

Track was pretty good shape today. Temp was mid 50's sunny. I was taking it easy to see how it felt before i really got into it. I drove it back in the trailer under it's own power that's a plus right there.

Yeah, and so far this year they are really prepping it well for this early in the year. Usually this early and since it's only test & tune they only drag the track and hope for the best but today they also sprayed it twice. I think they want people to know it's a good track and spread the word. Keep people happy and they will be back.
