Div 7 opener

Some good racing, LOTS of cars running, took an hour just to get through the S/C cars. Went by Jeff Jackson's trailer but nobody was home again :lol:

The blue GT500 was running some big cubes but I never found it in the pits, it was running 7.0's at 190+

The one that tagged the wall?


Didnt look like it had that much damage, just the nose. I was thinking one of the brakes locked, it was coasting after a bad pass and looked like it spun.

Jeff Jackson off of here was heading to the semi finals when I had to leave.

Nice site guys.

Just wanted to say hi and thank everybody for the nice comments on my Mustang. The description by Darrin is close. It is a Carbon Bodied, Tube chassis race car that appears to be a Ford. I love the Mustang body style and chose to replace my Grand Am with this sleek looking body.

The motor is about as much GM as the body is Ford. There is not a single Ford, GM, or Mopar part on the car. Its a race car. Simple as that. Its a Donovan blocked 724 inch Steve Schmidt piece and Im glad you guys liked it.

I am still getting the car dialed and Phoenix was the first event with Mickey Thompson rear skins on her. First pass was a tire shaking 7.10, Second was a tire rattling 7.03 and the third was a nice smooth 6.89 followed by a [email protected] with a 1 flat 60. The tires work great. Thanks Jeff for talking me into trying them and the answer is NO. You can't have them back.

Frank
