[QUOTE=BLAKE;8238666]Reposting a few from another thread... it was a blast, and it 's interesting how many folks (and this event) have graduated from 'Run what ya brung' to full-on FED rigs!!!



Hey Blake.....this is what "I brung" so "I ran it".....OH...., you were referring to me, as well as Steve, Darrell, the other blue Dragster AND the BBC Dragster....hummmm, You're right, this event has evolved since I ran the 3-2 carb Flathead in the 3w, then "had" to put the Blown Gas Flathead in it....and then, this crazy idea of "how to make a Flathead go even faster"....Build a Blown Fuel Flathead Dragster....I'm Sick.....this "danged ol Drag Racing...I wanna go faster" thing can send a person to the "funny farm"....hahaha

Thanks to Steve and the Kontinentals as well as Kirk and all of his staff at Little River for giving us such a fun venue to go play at. "This" event is what got me re-interested in Drag Racing......soooo, I'm gonna blame it all on y'all....haha

And Blake, Thanks for posting the shots of the Flathead FED.....I got so wound up that I ended up not getting many pictures

And Ryan, sorry you couldn't make it....was wondering what had happened to ya.....see you at Camp Mabry

SKOT - you rule!

Since we're sharing DOTD memories on this thread, here's a vid of the Alkyhaulic... blown alky-injected SBC that ran an 8.38 earlier that morning. Louder is betterer.

Made it there Saturday about noon. Brought my 7 year old twins (boy and girl) with me and they had a blast! It was their first time to see any type of drag racing in person and they were quite impressed. My daughter kept wanting to see more cars with parachutes! Lots of nice cars to walk around and look at, overall a great day with one exception. If you are going to smoke pot can you at least get inside your vehicle and do it? I really dont care to be walking around looking at cars with my kids and have to walk by people getting high! No B.S. and I wasnt the only one who seen it and it was more than one group doing it. There is always a few bad apples in every crowd and this isnt at all a reflection of the event as a whole. I was just pretty shocked to see this going on there.
