    I know its not smart to predict your cars ET ,and i dont have to because i know what it runs with me driving.Is there anyone going to the Hamb drags ,thats gunna be close to my e.t.'s ? I know DW ,flamedabone , and several others are faster than me and i know of lots that are slower than me .Is there anyone else going that will be running in the 11.80 -11.90 range ? I would like to match up with some good side by side races if possible for fun ,before eleminations ...

    Excellent ,look me up then.I will be running the ragidy looking, white and surface rust ,63 Dodge Dart .I am hoping to get it into the 11.70's ,but its gunna be awefull hot in August at Mokan ,so i doubt it will .I ran some 7.50's in the 1/8 a few weeks back in Ardmore ,but everyone i raced was either running the in the 8's or the 6's .Had fun but i either launched and never saw them again ,or they launched and never saw me again.I like a close race better than a slaughter anytime ,even if i loose in the process .See you at the Drags ...

    Got a new bullet in the '63 Chevy SWB, so I'm shooting for a mid 15. And I'm looking for RossAuto to do a sub 11 in the '37 Willys this year. Likewise for a couple of our other OKC crews.

    Cudan is short for coupe/sedan. I've seen a lot of model A's and a few 4 door tri five chevy's done that way....but thats a first for me on your '35! I still think it's cool :D

    My dad will be bringing his 1964 Belvedere with 426 Max Wedge. It should be in the 11's. I'll have my 63 Plymouth, but unfortunatly my Max Wedge is mild.
