Wish us luck.

We got permission from the SRD track manager to use the track today, meeting him at 4:00. Big chance of thunder storms this afternoon but maybe they will stay away long enough to get a few passes in. We won't have any clocks or track prep but this will give me a chance to see how she reacts if the track is not to bad. Knock on wood .

If the rain holds off, Chuck and I are going to MP Dragway to do some testing tomorrow during their regular program.

Doug,
If you want a real nice place to test, you may want to think about heading over to Silver Dollar Raceway in Reynolds GA. This Saturday they have a regular bracket race, but they will make sure you get all of the runs that you need.
It is only 200 miles away.
If you want to...give me a call 678-458-2033 and I will hook you up with the track owner.
