I'm pretty sure the track will not be prepared for the Thanksgiving race like it was for the SCSN, but it should be well prepped as usual.

Anyway, I decided I'm leaving the launch retard on, put some more time in the shift timer & no 1,000 one, two, three, four counting. The car seems pretty comfortable at 5.90s in the 1/8 mile & that's the plan. It should have me chasing most of the time & should be a good spot for being chased also.

Looking forward to a good time.

Hey Mike,

It was so great to see you in Bakersfield! We had a blast and will look forward to going back next year and catching up again.

Have a great Turkey day and good luck to all those in Vegas this weekend.

Every run the dragster (and me) gets better. First 3 passes not fun. Stuck at 5.15 / 136. Spent the night putting plugs, timing, dropped the jets from 98 to 95 and ran the valves. No more time trials so first round today I figured F it just dial 5.10 and run it out. I was kinda happy to break out with a 4.80 / 145….. averaging a .014 so far. Looking forward to tomorrows race but so far I’m just a 1st round grape. And I’m loving every minute !!!

Congrats KING!

There goes all retard Ed's material.

What's the delusional head set wearing wannabe crew chief Ed gonna use to ridicule KING with now, if he can't say KING ain't won shyt or done shyt worth talking about.

Hopefully KING picked up a Wally, that would be hilarious!! Smile

LoL! Ed, the head set wearing wanna be crew chief with forty years experience turning wrenches on race cars, but is still looking for someone to pay with enough drag racing savy to fix park on his on his 2 speed powerglide. Your ol' buddy Ed Smile

Thanks guys, it was a good day! My goal was met with the new combo. My game plan/strategy didn't disappoint me.

I have a big day tomorrow, with the daily Pro race & the 2 hundred dollar buy in low roller gambler race tomorrow.

I think Imakehp had a blast today, good eats & lots of laughs at the pit fire tonight. I think he had fun watching our electronic scoot...scoot racing.

Mike, no Wally for this race. I can send you a pic of some of mine.
