    Hopefully, parts are here today for the fix. If my truck makes it sign me up for the fire burn out, and im not to worried about the paint. It would be a cool pic in the shop, and might make the wife mad as a bonus. She asks why and I told her she wouldn't understand why.

  3. For everyone attending read this.
    They have no running water at the track. A few old anti freeze jugs full of water are needed.
    They have bugs this time of year. Put some off in your trailer.
    They don't serve beer at the track. A powerful thirst can develope bench racing. Come prepared.
    Eating out of a taco truck and snack shack gets old after a day. Bring something to eat and drink.
    Locals put down vht in small puddles after the water burnout. You can do it to just bring your own. It's not a requirement though.
    Pack a good attitude and be ready for fun.
     
  4. Tony I packed a few of these in case there's no room in your truck. 20190513_193058.jpg

    I can’t wait for my son to see Bills car in action ! I remember backing up from it when I first seen him rev it up to launch , now some 30 years ago...... that car stuck in my memory. We are going have a great time. Many Thanks to you , Tyler & all the family to have given so much time time to provide many folks with a great place to go for good times & awesome memories. Plus my daughter just moved to Paragould so now I have a place I can stay ! Flux
     
  7. Yep Bill Smiths 55 is sumthin else. I think all he has done is keep fixing whatever breaks. It still has a stock master cyl. After you see Bill launch it the first time you remember that!

    Hey guys. I reckon you're all in for a hell of a weekend. Too bad I'm down in Oz and can't attend.
    Run hard, have fun, and stay safe!

    Cheers,
    Arnold.

  12. As much as I would like to be there, it's just not on the cards for this year. Have fun, be safe and take lots of pictures for those of us who cant make it.
