My Weekend pulls here in Wisconsin " Long "

Well I had a 3 pull weekend lined up but only went to two of them. I passed on the Friday night pull and geared up for Saturday and Sunday..

Saturday Night Pull ... Denmark WI .. One of the best tracks here in the Northeast WI.. We had Scattered Thunder storms all day Saturday .. But the track workers where on top there game .. They had the track all worked up on Thursday and then covered it up with plastic sheets and waited for show time to uncover it .... Have you ever seen Clay that you feet stick to it .. Not it sticks too your feet... You couldn't even try to drag your feet.. it was that sticky...

OK I had a game plan all figured out for ShaZam and then the eliminator showed up, the one I thought was going to be there wasn't this one.. It was one I never pulled against, and I couldn't get a good read from anyone that had pulled it before... All they said was ya it pulls easy but they made changes on it over the winter..

So I picked a Safe gear for ShaZam and stood pat..
Oh ya and Saturday I got to Run my buddies Truck Bad to the Bone also .. He had to go camping with the wife..
He put his gear in before He left on Friday and told me to Roll it out about 5 feet then matte it and hang on till it stops..

So I went too sign in and drew 13 for Bad to the Bone and 20 for ShaZam ..Which worked out too 11 and 17 on the Order sheet ..

So when it was time I pulled Bad to the Bone on too the track and backed up too the sled and as I pulled up the slack in the chain. What Bruce told me kept repeating in my head.
" Roll it out about 5 feet then matte it and hang on till it stops.. Roll it out about 5 feet then matte it and hang on till it stops.."

Well Bad to the Bone has a Crower Glider clutch, which means you don't have too use the clutch peddle .. But all thur the pits and in staging I had to rev the motor too 3500 Rpm's to get it too move ..
Well as soon as I hooked to the sled it was a different story it seemed .

So I'm hooked to the sled took up the slack and Put in neutral to clean the motor some ..Slipped it back in to forward and started to bring the R's up ...

Well Bad to the Bone is starting to leave the line at 2800 Rpm's, So I rolled it out 5' and Matted it ....
And it didn't come up like it should have. Booowwwwaaa
At the 150' it was turning 4500 and working it way up and then at the 200' mark it finally took off and hit 6800 and held there to the 306.5' mark where 310' was a full pull mark and the first place Truck was @ 308.5' at that time.
Bad to the bone was 2nd coming off the track with 9 trucks And ShaZam to go.

So I took some time to get my thoughts together after the pulling Bad to the Bone .. I have too tall of a gear in ShaZam I'm thinking to myself, But I did this before and kicked my self for changing it at Gillett.. So Nope I leaving it alone.. Then Running in the Red came up to the line, As he was leaving it stumbled a little and then it was like he kick it in the A$$ and pulled it out the end too 316.1' mark.. So OK Bad to the Bone is now 3rd And then 2 trucks later Coyote Cool goes 307.10' and now Bad to the Bone is 4th...

As I pulled ShaZam on to the track All I knew was I had to get on it quick and hope to ride it out past 310' mark to get into a pull off..

As I Pulled up the slack in the chain I Bumped it into neutral Cleared the motor a little and Slid my C6 into go then into go fast and finally into go really fast gear.
Step on the go fast peddle and off the line she came a lot easier then before and I watched the tach go up and up By the 150' mark I was turning 6900 and it held there the rest of the way down the track and ShaZam stopped at the 306.3' mark. Bummer Well OK I'm sitting in 5th 2" behind Bad to the Bone.... And 3 trucks left to pull ....
When it was all over I finished 4th and 5th for the night out of 21 trucks and felt I did really good.. I've only pulled on this track twice before and broke both times... Videos too follow Soon ...

http://videos.streetfire.net/video/0...0900f253ca.htm


Sunday Shakey Lakes Aka the Sand Pit...

Oh how I dread pulling there ... Last 6 years I either finished last, broke or blew up at this pull... My wife says I should skip this one.. But I'm sitting 3rd in points in both classes and It's really hard to make up the 30 points for not going..
So I'm sitting there with the 950 gear still in ShaZam from Denmark.. I was talking with my Dad and said maybe I'll just leave it in there and play with the gas pedal to maintain Rpm's...

But I was watching the classes before mine and the track was really responding well to wheel speed today.. So I went to my logbook too see what gear I ran At the Woody National
I ran the 1200 gear there .. So in went the 1200 gear .. Now @ 8000 Rpm's I'll have a wheel speed of 41.287 Mph.

I was the 3rd puller out of 8 trucks in Super Stock

As I was leaving the line I eased it out too the first set of cones, then put the go fast peddle to the floor and we where off too the races, And ShaZam came to a Stop Throwing 40' Sand Rooster with a distance of 249.5' on a 250' track sitting in first place with 5 trucks to go. When the class was over ShaZam was still in 1St place. Hot Dame Where doing good today ..
So changed over to the Mod tires for the next class and put ShaZam in line... I was the last puller in this class, So I had to sit and watch everyone go down the track which is a good and bad thing....
I'm seeing where they all go down the track And it's getting to be a one rut track, And it's getting worse as the pull goes on with these bar tires really digging the ruts.

So now the set up of this story..

My other buddy Dean Wagner how drives Burnin Desirer was the 3rd puller in this class and was still sitting in 1st place. When he stooped at the end of the track the last set of cones on the track where in the middle of his door..
So that was my target, Nothing else matter.

So it's finally my turn and as I pull onto the track the eliminator got pulled back funny .. it was all the way to one side of the track ... Them boys thought they where doing me a favor by giving me a clear track to run on instead of the ruts that where there..
But I knew the traction was where the ruts where cause the sand was wetter there, And one thing I did learn this year was Wet Sandy tracks make more grip..

So I eased it off the line and really babied it past the first set of cones trying to get into the ruts.. And just as the tires fell into the ruts I nailed it to the floor And the roosters where flying again.
Mean while my buddy Dean is standing on the side of the track thinking I waited too long to get on it and there was no way I could get him...
Well as I was picking up speed the flag man dame near fell when he tripped over the double cones on the end of the track, but I watch those two cones as they went by my drivers door and then to the back of the cab ... Far enough and down too the hubs I went throwing at least 50' Rooster this time.
Those tires hooked so hard when I dropped into the ruts the sled operator told me afterwards he dame near got thrown off the sled.. He said thanks for the hell ride man ...

So ShaZam finished 1st in Mod with a 260.7' Run...
After 7 years of Pulling ShaZam is starting to come into her own..
Oh and for those wondering just how the 1200 gear worked for the day .

Super Stock 35" tires 7800/8000 Rpm's = 41.287 Mph.

Modified 34" tires 7500/7700 Rpm's = 38.608 Mph.

Dan,

Excellent results! I think you must be having more fun pulling this year than in the past years. I'm happy for you! I'm also glad you're putting a spanking on all those Chevy boys. Do you think you have as much power as the rest of them, or maybe even more?

Later,

Charlie Evans

Later,
Well Charlie Bad to the Bone was the baddest truck in the neighborhood here .. and after driving it on Saturday night I can Say I have more Horsepower then he does.. I'm thinking I might pull the motor out of ShaZam at the end of the season and have it dyno'd just too see how much over 1000 H.p. it's making Because it's making more then the 987 that the DTD2000 says it's suppose to make ...
If we just go off the gears run...Bad to the Bone had a 850 Gear running a 6.80 Rearend which comes out too .. 6800 = 27.010 Mph's
And ShaZam ran a 950 Gear with a 6.17 rearend and Turned 6900 = 31.946 Mph's

But in the end He got me by 2"

And YES I'm having a Lot more FUN then I did last season..
Last year at this time I was building my 3rd motor And at 8000 a pop the old bank account was taking a bad hit.
This season I still have money going into the bank ..

You write a helluva good book!!!! At the end of the season, pull the engine, bring it down, and us Kentucky Headhunters will throw it on the DTS dyno and we'll just see how much it's making. That will give you a good opportunity to have some hands-on experience with the DTS, seeing as how you're thinking of buying a dyno anyway.

truck pulls

Nice job over the weekend i enjoy seeing how you pan out after your pulls. I am looking forward to seeing bad to the bone again on september 16th for the all star shootout at Watertown,WI maybe you will be ther to seems like you have been taking in some PI events what they do is take the top 5 point leaders from PI,Fantasy,Btpa,and Badger tractor&truck and have a shootout with the teams total footage determining the winning club. Last year i finished 2' behind Bad to the bone and i am interested to see what happens this time around after a bunch of improvements to my truck, one of the biggest being Charlie Evans doing up the heads, last year they were just out of the box EX 514, and this year i put in a profab case and a scs reverser box wich all together made a big difference. This has been one of the best seasons i have ever had winning a lot and in the top 3 in points, but had some bad luck at Union Grove, WI last wednesday night unloaded the truck watched the 2 classes before our Super stock class time to get ready fire up my 2004 F350 and get 30' from the scale and my fuel pump died (holley volumax) 3 seasons old didnt have a spare and one of the pullers had one but it was alot smaller and didnt have fittings to adapt it, so i had a DNF. So i will have to work my butt off to get back up in the top 5 again to make. Keep up the good work Greg
