Pinks Shreveport: Good Luck - Bad Luck

Good luck was I made the 16. Bad luck was as soon as I crossed the finish line on my first win, the transmission let go. Couldn't make it back to the starting line for the next race, so I didn't get the money for the win either.
All in all, the weather sucked, and my car broke, but it was still better than my best day at work!
Better luck to all you guys who are entered in upcoming Pinks. Maybe you'll represent the BBF better than I did. 8)

If it ain't broke, you can't fix it no matter how hard you try!

Hey, David, it was awesome meting you and your wife out there.

Sorry to hear about your trans, but at least it blew up on national TV.... sorry, a little gallows humor there.

My brother said you did the biggest, baddest burnout of all time on Saturday. Right on!

Later,

Greg

In Limbo at all times

I think the track was great. I still can't believe how well it hooked with all the rain. Lots of shut down room too. I wish it was closer to me.

Bitter Sweet Dave, Hopefully I'll be represting the BBF Banner at the St. Louis Pinks All Out event.

Glad that you made the show, can't wait to see you and your car on TV 8)

I've set my car up so that it will stay cool IF and that's a BIG IF I make the show.

See you at the Bash!

Thanks Guys. Yeah, it will be interesting to see exactly what gets put on the air. I heard a rumor it may air in July but I don't know for sure. Got to get the tranny fixed for the Bash

I was about to ask the same question. I've notified Nate that you will have your 56 T-Bird at the St. Louis Pinks ALL OUT 8) This is gonna be FUN!

I ran 9.81 fri. and 9.82 sat. I heard that the total separation was 9.80 - 9.86 between all 16 cars. Just as a side note, There were many more cars in the 9.75 -9.90 bracket. One thing they looked at to help make their decision was reaction times. It's important to pay attention and cut your best light (or arm drop) in qualifying. If you jumped the start you were disqualified instantly.
Our deal was different than most because of the rain. We only got to make one pass Fri. On sat. we only got one shot to qualify. If you jumped or blew the tires off or got squirrly it was over. That made for a pretty intense qualifying round.
