HAMB Drags 2013 thanks to all

Discussion in 'The Hokey Ass Message Board' started by Kerry, Aug 17, 2013.

  1. Once again I have to say a huge thanks to Ryan, Marcie, and their folks. The HAMB Drags are a GREAT time! Fun with friends, cool cars, and racing. I appreciate all your efforts to make it happen!

    This year was a good one for me as I finally got the Dragmaster down the track. A best of 8.85 @ 165.50. I'm going to be grinning for a while. :) The shutdown was plenty exciting too as she started hopping like mad as I got on the brakes.

    A huge thank El Jefe for thinking enough of our efforts to give us the Kontinental cup. This means more than you know!!!

    And to all of you who have rooted for us and encouraged while I was breaking stuff and throwing belts ...

    THANK YOU!!!!

    Saw the Dragmaster in the hotel parking lot Friday night and checked out the new puke tank. Car looked cool. Glad you went fast.

    Congrats Kerry, that is haulin some Hemi! ~sololobo~
  15. Thanks for the kind words guys. :) I'm still kinda in shock. Like a couple of you mentioned, there is more left in her. It's greed of a sort. I'm pretty sure I can squeeze a little more mph out of her and even at 165, I should be able to get to the 7's.

    I totally forgot to thank Carl and his crew. You guys rock!

    And then the guys helping and stuffing me in the WZ-Junk, Wrenchbender, Ryno, KCMongo, and plenty of others. This crazy thing takes a group effort and I could make a pass without you guys.

    I want some video too Sam. My dear wife was fighting a spastic video camera and missed both passes. :-( Did anybody get it on video? Pretty please???

    Fastest Vagabond Tman but I've got a ways to go to beat John Wiebe's times.

    It wasn't you Ryno, Kendra, our daughter was there so everything went right!

    Good job Kerry. I`m glad I was there to see that pass!!!You`ve been working hard to get that thing from a bunch of tubing to a running rail!! I`m glad for you and your family!!!

  17. Right on Kerry! Very good time and mph. Worth all the effort. Cheers!
  18. KERRY!

    YOU ROCK! Really glad I was there to see you blast down the track after all the work you have put into making it fly. Can't wait for a video either. After watching you go through all the trials and tribulations, I was so happy that you finally got a great run.

    Congrats! (A LOT)

    HI BOB!

    A great day at Mokan. Lots of fun. I got to drive a station wagon again, and a four speed too. ( I had the honor of towing Kerry back to the pits with his period perfect station wagon). Thanks for letting me have some fun.

    i saw a little of it (lots of people standing in front of me), i didn't know what happened on that 1st run, until i saw the broken blower belt in somebody's hand.

    i don't know if you are aware of it, because you certainly wouldn't have heard it, but there was quite a round of applause behind the burnout box for your 2nd. congratulations!

  27. Don't know how to post pics from my phone so somebody post a picture of a ruler. Not one of those puny 12 inchers either. Kerry's at least a yard stick.:D
