Hey SD,


I met you there last year briefly. If my dad can get home from Baghdad in time, we are going to try and make it this year as well. I don't know if our car would be fast enough to run that class but I would try.

Keith,
It would be great to see you and your Dad in the Nitrous Thunder class. Come on out and give it a shot. You never know what might happen on race day!!!

Fordtek,
We are looking to keep the ET range in the 8.50-9.50 range. This should be a good range for a wide variety of cars and combinations.

Thats a surprise!!! I should run 8.70s on a 2 hundred shot. We may have to give it a try. Now I just have to get him home so we can do this thing. Good luck this year by the way SD!!! And that a boy for last year.

OPPS!

Just read the rules and can't run because the car has a four link. I would also have to put at least two people in the car with me to make weight and no room for mufflers I will surely watch though!! Just have to run the Fast Ford brackets as usual.

No, I am not. However, this class was my idea so I have a vested interest in making it successful. I also had a hand in lining up the sponsorship with quite a bit of help from Keith Keplinger of Keplinger Designs and Austin Craig of Wilson Manifolds/Nitrous Pro-Flow.

The rules, class structure, and payouts were all my idea so you can see why I'm pushing for support. I'm also one of FFW's staunchest supporters along with being a very longtime FFW racer.
