Pro stock adventure

This was so cool I got to tell you guys about it.This weekend I crewed on an IHRA pro stock at a test section.They worked my butt off!I worked the rear of the car helped the clutch man.Saturday night during the weekly races we were running a match race style deal and hurt one of the 800+ inch motors.After I got my stuff done I help change it.When we were all done for the weekend they came up to me and ask if I would be interested in going to work for them.I felt so proud to be asked but I have a great job and family and I got to get this BBF together.They offered to pay me for the weekend I told them no this was PRICELESS.
