We could have some great weather (low DA) for you to reach into the 11's.

Hey Mike, I was wondering what happened to you this year!

April wants to go, so we might be able to get 2 cars there again.
She is going to take over 4th place from Glen and wants to sneak
ahead of BK for 3rd. I figure if she goes a few rounds, she can win
the championship at Etown.

We went to MIR last night and she cut a .019 first round and then a .008 2nd
round when her opponent thought he had her with a .011.
The ImpalaMASTER ran 12.20 then 12.16, so watch out!

I'll come up with some sort of tow vehicle to take down the track :)

WOW just when I get the 95SS new engine in.
Starting to finis up details

The Car gets stuck on the Lift and the Garage Door snatches, bends the hood and breaks a strut.
The Strut is already replaced.
Now I have to get out the dents, re-bend the hood flat and fresh paint.

Hoping to bring the SS to Island and exercise the new combination.
It does sound good.

FWIW I am learning the SSuperwagons personality.
Not won a lot of races but I am having fun with it.

Sorry to hear about the miss hap, Dan.
So did you break the hood or did the professional shop do it?
I'm sure you can get it fixed by next race (2 weeks).
Remember, if you wanna win races, you better bring a race car!

Cel and I went to Atco today to get in some practice and sort out the new engine combo. Unfortunately Atco runs the classes so slow that I only got 6 runs. We'll probably go to Island next weekend to get in some more practice.

No..Stuff happens. A minor setback.
My friend who runs the station was working on the car.
Got a bit to do to make it road worthy and fully IHRA PS legal.
Need to find a company that can balance a stock driveshaft.

After looking at schedules.
Christina will be playing travel games Saturday and Sunday for October and November.

For now Family and Soccer is over Racing.
You will figure it out.

AND I always bring race cars..

Glen Keith and I went to Etown saturday for the EFI and some practice. I am still working out some bugs and found a big one. Got pushed off the starting line not once but twice. Got it fixed and made my best runs so far and in the 1.78's 60' times. Had one practice round then right into losing first round with a double breakout. But I was happy because it put me into the 12's :) or a 12.92. Now off to Island to see if I can somehow make it consistent. And I do not want to race Keith. lol
