First off had a great day with Mike. I have to thank him for getting me out to the track.
As usual while swapping front wheels. Passers by asked the usual "what will it run?". After checking the da I figured 10.8's, judging by the last outing.
The first pass was 10.71. Fluke?
Next pass 10.73 so...
I haven't really been very active lately.
Lots going on with family and working more than usual.
I figured I would share my outing last weekend in the worst conditions I have run in.
I have been bracket racing the last few weeks for a new challenge.
I keep red lighting.🤪 Trying to figure out why...
Well the track owner set up a rental with a bunch of rules about wearing masks outside the car and stuff. The police checked up on us a few times and all good. Another track got closed down.
EVERYTHING was in the car. No weight reduction at all except for the rear wheels and drag radials.

Then a couple 10.43's. Let the car cool longer and 10.426 so better by...
A few wks ago I got a new pb by .001.
I also beat my 60' time of 1.516 with quite a few 1.50x since then.
Yesterday I ran another new pb. As a matter of fact the old one was just about the middle of my runs yesterday. Hopefully I get to run quicker again soon. LOL
Yes there was a little weight...
Saturday the rains postponed all the racing. On Sunday I show up at the track and it's packed. They basically ran 2 days racing in 1.
