I think the best I got out of it was 18.9? It would be 19-teens usually. The last time it went down the track was in '03 I think, when I was having new combo blues in the Cutlass, and it was definitely still making the bump easily, 19.20-40. Did I leave any time slips in the glovebox? I'm considering it too, but the adjustment back to work this week has sucked. I wish Barry didn't sell my Dynasty... I would take it in a heartbeat!

Relatively, yes, when it was on a fairly new tune up, which it sounds like it is. It did not like being cold at all, almost stalled on me once off the line.

Mark Romeo was doing a pretty good job in the cavalier, how about Markie Brewer in a chevy maybe after all those years he has seen the light? LOL

Thanks, Brianna!
Well, at least Ray was in the right class (Street!), in the right make (Olds, baby! Big Grin) yesterday. And with a .019 light to boot, although Frank Tedesco schooled us all with a .003. He is serious about defending his Track Manager's title. That monsoon really sucked.

Congrats to Markie, very cool. Does this mean a sbc may end up in the Vibe, Steve? Big Grin

Yeah too bad about the rain.

The cavalier may not be the ideal bracket mobile but I was doin alright on the tree at least for a little while. It always figures that I get up against one of the few people who know what is going on on those import nights, and then I'm late to boot. Oh well it was fun. ran high 19's Chuck I was pretty impressed. Only used 1 shift though felt like I was running a glide equipped car.

today i wanted to throw a curve ball at ryan.
so after the rain out yesterday at prp after time runs, i decided to make the trip and take him to mason dixon dragway today so he can get a feel of racing different people at a different track and hopefully get him prepped for the bracket finals in 2 weeks.
ill tell you what, this boy held his own !!
it was an all run event and i think there was 39 cars total.
round robin style time runs, we picked up every pass a ton.
got 2 time runs in and then a qualifying run. he started with a .021 lightand a 13.00. next was a .068. then in the qualifiying pass, he had a .044 light.
these runs were like BANG BANG BANG.
i mean this boy never left his car from the first time run till his last round.
out of 39 cars, he made it to the final 5. i thnk he even had the best winning package and the best losing all in the same event.
one run was a .025 light with a 12.820 on a 12.82 dial for a win. and in the 4th round he had a .017 light anbd ran a 12.718 on a 12.72 dial and both of those passes were against 7.90 cars.
this was just one of many " proud dad" monents.
on the way home i asked him how he felt about how he did today.
the first thing he said was " bring on the big guns dad, im ready !!!!!"
just had to share this moment Big Grin

Thanks Russ, hope everything is ok with you. Let me know if you need anything with either ride.

I was hoping you would get it into the winner's circle, Mark. That would have been cool! And high 19s for a 16 year old 4 cylinder with well over 150K ain't bad either. Big Grin

Jeff, I think I could use some lessons from Ryan! That is great, he did awesome.

Great job Ryan! If you're handing out any driving tips...count me in Smile

Thanks Chuck, Allison's car is still screwed up but I think that she is running Tom Paton's car at the Brackets. A consistent 12.0 car with Trixie driving....the boys in Street might be in trouble!

thanks ,
as far a a driving clinic, lol
the best thing he can tell you is that perfect practice makes perfect. and if you see him after a run, he is at the porta tree cutting lights. i have it set up so it bracket races the computer, and the computer always has a .050 light and he does 10 wins after every pass, and also 50 wins every night.

Hey guys and girls, don't forget to make sure your IHRA license is up to date for Bracket Finals. If you need to renew, here's the contact at IHRA: Donna Harper at (419) 660-4219
for further membership & licensing information

And I'm looking forward to this weekend. We'll see if Mike Balaska can hold on to the King of Street title! http://www.pittsburghracewaypark.com/PDFS/2006_kingofst.pdf

Oops, yes, sorry about that. What I meant to say is you can save $10 by doing it now, rather than waiting til next week at QC.

The track packet has the contingency list for Finals in it, and it's here as well:
http://www.ihra.com/contingency/2006/postings/teamfinals.htm

I have to go through my folder of stickers, but if anyone has Auto Meter (gauges, 2), Edelbrock (intake, 4), Holley (carb, 4), Milodon (oil pan, 2), Accel/Mr Gasket (spark plug wires, 2), Mr Gasket (gaskets, 2), Mickey Thompson (tires, 2), that they're willing to give up, I'd love to have them. Yaneverknow, I could end up in the final, and $200/$100 each is nice. I'll try to dig mine up, and post what I have if anyone needs my extras.
