Meltdown 2017 was made extra special by a handful of firsts for me. First time I've ever been down the track in a dragster, first time running Byron and at night, first time this car has been down the track in decades and first run on the new engine. I should get some flack about running 18.00@46 in a 9 second car but I'm looking at it this way, I got to watch all 8 candles burning for a full 15 seconds and it was awesome. Thanks Meltdown crew for the memories and for the effort put into the greatest vintage meet on the planet !!
