What I've been up to
besides chasing NHRA Divisional and National Championships in Super Comp with my son.

The transformation of my Firebird and it is just about ready for Super Street...

Our Undercover dragsters make a great Top Dragster if you ever want to go that route. Just qualified #1 at the resent D4 race in Belle Rose La with a 6.100@231 mph

Won a MWPMS TD race last season in Tulsa

I know, I was watching. Wink

Yea they're great cars. No plans yet for TD. Thinking about building a Super Gas car or new Super Comp dragster next season but this car has been so good.
