Weekend at Bowling Green

Well ,where to start??? Ky jelly about wrecked the Stang a couple of times...The last one today was one hell of a ride!! He barely missed the Tree ..Started out in the right lane ,took out the 60 foot lights on 2 wheels missed the dragster in the left lane by inches and slid to a stop about 6"s from the left lane wall......He parked it after that one I got to 3 cars last night and had the other guy covered and popped the throttle one time too many. Then today done my burnout for 2nd round and something let go in the tranny..won't do anything ,I think it broke the input shaft?? 5.69..5.69..5.69...5.69..5.69 all day long!! Get it lined out running some #'s and bam ..Racin sux sometimes,but at least it's not motor trouble!!Had fun ,Chuck,Blake, Daymond and Tracy and Logan and Chuck's parents were there .It was great seeing them all again.

Big Dan<
It sounds like the Bowling Green folks had the same track prep technology as they did at the Hot Rod Reunion. I need to bring some hillbilly track preparation folks up there.
They seem to have missed the basics....
Sorry to hear about your trans.
Later...

At least 25! I think the track clean-up and tow trucks made more passes than any of the race cars! We did have a great time hanging out, and thanks Tracy for grilling Saturday night!

I figured out where the water came from , out of that same cap that popped out on the upper neck . If you watch you can see it spray right in front of the front tire. What a ride almost needed to borrow Damon's depends on that one .

Thanks Nick . I feel very , very fortunate that I did not hit the wall. If you think it looked crazy from the outside you should have been setting in there. It makes you about scared to let go of that button . Needles to say it went in the trailer after that pass.
