  3. its always a trade off. going early means cooler and wetter weather. we got rained out in the mid may race. i was thinking the holiday would provide a extra day for travel.

  4. Here’s the deal: I’m definitely going to come to this next year and bring my 9 year old son and two nephews, age 18 and 19. My Dad will come along too, he was in the pits with me when I used to drag race. BUT, and I mean BUT, when the drag racing itch in me comes back out, you guys can deal with my Wife! Now, I gotta go dig out one of my 327s and forged TRW 12 to 1 pistons. Just got to decide on what heads to use and find a H.A.M.B. friendly car to put it in........

    There's only one head for a 327 and that's a true camel hump, now you can have them in aluminum.
    They are made by Trick Flow and they even have one that is set up for a .600 lift camshaft.
    You probably won't set any records with them but you'll look good doing it.

    Good article here:

  7. What's this "deal with my wife " thing?

  8. I was still racing when we got married. Life has a habit of sneaking up on you and a couple of years later I just didn’t have the time that I used to. Part of the problem is that I started working 50 miles from home instead of 10 miles from home and the time I used to spend working on the car during the week was used to commute. She has never objected to anything I have done or been into, but money has been a little tight as of late. I mentioned Junior Dragsters once and she got scared of the danger.

    I am not sure what way to go on dates for the race, but I know you cant please everyone. I like earlier, but open to here what works. If anyone has a George Ray sticker for my tool box I would be willing to buy it from ya, I forgot to get one when I was down there in the spring.

    Those are some cool pics from the track. More truck problems, so I believe my racing season is done, time to start planning what I am going to change and get some parts. I always said I would not put a roll bar in my truck but I hope to be knocking on low 11's come spring, but I still don't want a roll bar. Time will tell maybe just a new truck to race.

  10. Get a set of 327 truck pistons. Those dished forged ones. put bigger valves in a set of open chamber heads. And mount a blower or turbo on it. For the 1/8 mile you need low rear gears.

    Mashie did a story for Gasser Wars magazine about September race at George Rays dragstrip. Check Gasser Wars out on Facebook if you want a copy.
