well not 460 powered but still a ford
Since i haven't been able to get the mud truck to the pits yet this year decided I wanted to do some racing so took the PSD to the strip for some fun. Had an absolute blast doing it too. They built a new speedway in Newton about 50 miles from me and have street legal drags, called fast and fun fridays. you don't win anything and no brackets etc, just good ole heads up fun racing. Pull into the stage lines and whatever ends up next to you is what you race. 1/8th mile, and nice track actually. you can race as much as you want for the entry fee, just keep coming back and getting in line. Anyway I didn't end up getting to dilute the fuel I have in the truck so was running B50 which might have hurt my times a little but mentioned it at the end of the night and the announcer told me to say something about it early as the Iowa biodiesel board is one of the biggest sponsors of the track and they would have made a big deal about it, as it was they were making a big deal about a diesel truck beating up on everything out there. lol. He asked me to come back with it and let them know and they will advertise and make the issue about it running on bio, which is of coarse a big deal in this state.
My first run of the night was against a real healthy 68 camaro, said 327 on the emblem, no idea ifit was or not but did have a bad arse cam in it, street slicks and I have to admit was real nice looking car. But he should have left it on the trailer. beat him by almost a full second, after that people started to actually look at my truck and weren't saying well this will be an easy run. As it turned out, only lost one race all night long and that was cause I red lighted. lol
anyway my last run of the night turned out to be my best, I can tell I need to practice on the tree a little, but not bad since I haven't had any practice yet this year, and I was beating most other reaction times I saw.
also remember this is a 7200lb full size 4x4 extended cap long box truck.
