    Successful debut. Just like it never happened. Ran good. No real issues. Hope to run again next Friday at the Texas Motorplex. I didn't take any pics or video. I'll see if I can find some.

    Lots of compliments on the fiberglass front end.

    Pop taught you well, and it shows in the fact it runs like it never happened.

    We were pitted just north of you this weekend. Other than the primer on the nose and the wrinkle in the rear quarter, just looked like another day at the races for you. Your fiberglass guy did a fine job. Enjoy watching you guys run. Wish I had a stick shift and straight front axle so I could run with you guys with my stude.

    Found some from Saturday. Scheduled to run this Friday night at the NHRA Fallnationals in Ennis, TX. The other D/GAS car from Iowa is coming down to run me probably in front of a good crowd. Hope it holds up to the hype..lol.

    Video from last week at Little River. The run where no one is in the other lane is actually the first run after the crash. Out of order a little bit..


     
  16. So, how did it go this weekend at the Texas Motorplex?
     
  17. Good to see both you and Danny are back on the track.

    We only got to make one run Friday night but we made the most of it. We had a lot of interest in the cars. Tons of people asking questions about the rules we use. It was more of an exposure/marketing event. They will probably ask us back again. Hopefully we can get more cars next time.
