There in and filling out there cards waiting to do time trials, he said he would call me when he makes his first pass...............


Sounds like they are having a blast, Maybe some conspiring against Bruno going on.

He said he was glad they got there last night , because cars are still rolling in, said he had really good pit spots and all the guys were parked together except for David Lynch.......

Update

Damon and Tracy are walking around looking for the t-shirt booths. They are calling cars for registration now. Cars 1-50 were called...he is 355 so he has some waiting.

They'll get 2 test and tune runs tonight and the racing starts tomorrow morning.

I got the same impression that Blake did...there is some Bruno conspiracy activity going on down there.

Damon only got to make one pass and ran a 9.59 @147 mph , he said every-ones cars were off but his picked up , so he was happy.

On a side note it seems a few people got interviewed by the Pinks crew and our man Dan ( aka Tweety bird ) Hobbs was one of them, It has been said that a U-haul trailer has been rented to carry his head back to Ky, as it is swelled to big to be able to fit in the tow truck............ :lol:


More updates forth coming.

Jon,

I agree. 147 mph should equate to the following incrementals.... 1.28 60' time, then a 3.76 330' time, then a 5.85 1/8th mile and a 9.25 quarter mile. So he's leaving some on the table somewhere. Probally losing some in the first 1/8th and picking it up in the back half. I believe there are a lot of the Ford guys that have picked up in "big power" over the last year or so, and they haven't got their chassis/convertor combo working like they should.

Guys,

Between now and the Bash, I'll try to take care of Dan's "big head" problem. :twisted:
