Time to THAW
I had a great time guys thanks to everyone involved! Still about two hours from home I'll get the photos going up as quickly as I can in the morning.
A large thank you goes out to the Torques for a job well done. Turned out to be a very, very good day. All the Northstar folks were spot on. Thanks . Actually found time to chat with old as well as new friends. Thanks again and we'll be seeing you in the lanes. Texas HillRat
For those of us living vicariously,,,,,,,,,,
Tim, you missed more than just racing.............
Yep... "How 'Bout Those Apples!"
"Blue-Friggin'-Ribbon-Winnin' apples, for sure.
Here's a couple of videos
Does anyone know what happened to that one guys car? He got half way down the track and went up in smoke. They shut the track down for over an hour after that, and that's when I left.
Torgues, Once again, Great Event. Thanks guy's!!! Lots of racing!! Bad ass et's. Car show was the best.
Heres some I took
Texas Thaw 2013
Dont under estimate that little English Ford Thames of Andy's.He put a whooping on The Shockers ass with it Friday night .That little green Bread van has come along way in a short amount of time .I think a rematch at the DOTD is gunna be in order.The Dodge of mine will be able to stretch its legs a bit better in the 1/4 mile ...
Looks like it had a piston that needed some fresh air.
I'll be putting pictures up maybe tomorrow evening or Tuesday. Had a blast. Thanks to the Torques and everyone who made this shindig happen.
First sunburn of the year. Whoo-hoo!

Wow what a weekend..thanks to Big Ken and the Torques for yet another great Thaw.........need to get my head around this bracket racing thing but that will come with practice.........finally got to race the shocker and beat him by a gnat's cock but I will take it............been told that my 6.95 was a good pass in the 8th ( I never run 8th only 1/4 so its all new to me) and Tim you were sorely missed my friend........ good to see Rick and Jacob get to run that beast down the track ......I have some in car video that I will get up tomorrow...again thanks to the Torques.........onward and upward.............
A big thanks to the Torques and North Star Dragway for putting on a first class event. The weather was great and the event well attended!! I don't who took this video of me but thanks!! I ran a 6.84 and was on my way deeper in the 6's before my trans went soft..I'll be back next year!!
What a great event once again...
THIS race and the yella belly race is what it's all about boys n girls
Finally met some of y'all from the board, had a blast!
Lookin fwd to the next event!
Just gets better every year...
And now my 19 year old head banger wants to build a retro rod..........
He's very stealthy: he's already inventoried an gaggle of spares in the shop he knows I won't need for the race car (and, dangit, he's right!)
I should have suspected something when he cleaned and washed the showcar and loaded up the truck on his own.
I'm not foolin' anyone either: I'm REALLY fired up over this!
It was an event to be remembered...Best one yet !!!!!!!!!!!!!
Thanks Dennis..............and seriousely, pass along to the Gas House Gang for their commitment and dedication to helping make this a great event.
For those that want to see it through my eyes, I've started a thread here.
Thanks again guys for a great event!
