There were a lot of top fulers at practice there tonight, it was fun to watch them. A few funny cars too. A jet dragster. Ricers, vetts, TA, stangs, and two GTOs. Mine, a bone stock 04 and a 67. Here are my times, temp..mid to lower 80's and cooling as the evening gets later.

1st run

1/4 14.110

2nd
60' 2.216
1/4 14.119
MPH 99.69

60' 2.141
1/4 14.108
MPH 97.53

This is only my second time at the track. I think with some more practice launching the car I could do better.

I'am learning to launch better, half dumping the clutch and then ridding it.

Thoes are some very good and consistant times. A buddy of mine was there in a '03 Cobra ran 12.4 on slicks said the track sucked the car a week ago ran 12.2 on street tires.

There were 3 or 4 cobras there. Actually the track was pretty good if, someone didn't hit the wall(delay), blew the rear end(delay), blew a trans(delay), hit the timming lights at the far end of the track(delay), lost peices off their car(delay). I was lucky I got 7 runs in. I only posted 6 cause one I blew the shift from 3-4.

Goes to show you what the driver can do to the times. Here he is running 14's for the first 4 runs. If he quits there, those stang guys think "see another 14 sec. GTO". Well guess what, this car is clearly a mid 13 car stock
with the driver having some experience. This guy has only been to the track twice and pulled a 13.66. That is awesome, these cars are awesome. Congrats on your runs. Man, my adrenaline is pumping. :hail:
