Default Some Newbie Vids.. 1st time to race

Friday night test and tune
This was my first night in my car and to ever go down the track.. It was test and tune night.. End of the night I had my car running 6.36 through the 1/8th mile. at 107 to 109 mph. Did not run beside anyone because I had never been down the track and had never run this car before so I wanted to be safe and not take someone out if there was a problem with the car.. All 6 runs I was cutting lights in the 5's.. I had two lights that were almost perfect. 502 and a 503.. Not to bad for my 1st run ever.

Saturday night race night
This was my 1st race to ever race side by side with someone !! And it was a trip !!
The night started off really hot and I did 2 time trails.. 1st one was a 6.41 then it got cooler and my car ran a 6.30.. So I dialed a 6.30 because thats the fastest that it has ever been in the few times I have had it down the track during the test and tune night.
The guy I was racing red lighted and lost.. But I also red lighted and broke out.. so did he..
So I won !! My car ran a 6.29 on a 6.30 dial in.. At 107 mph.

Oh yeah.. I had some horrible lights.. Test and tune night I was cutting 502 and 503 lights.. Race night I was cutting lights in the 9's and 6's.. HORRIBLE !! Guess I was taking it all in and watching the other cars light too.. Oh well.. Hopefully It will get better !

2nd round of eliminations I lowered my dial in to a 6,28 thought I was being safe..
I was running a guy who was dialed a 5.90.. I ran even faster with a 6.26 at 111mph.. Borke out once again.. The other guy ran a 5.93. So I got beat .. But I had a blast and learned a lot. !!
