I'm famous!!

The racing org. that I compete in got a TV spot on Inside Drag Racing. The broadcast date is Oct.11th on Fox sports 11:30 est. You can watch me kick the crap out of the ET record holder of the class which is a Chevy of course. Man, it was hot!!! 103 degrees with a track temp of 143 degrees and the corrected air was 3800 ft. I qualified #1 with a 8.38 @ 164.83, set the MPH record, won the event and the Championship. Also this was the last race for the car since I sold it as a roller.

I have to weigh 3050 but I have 150 lbs added to it so 2900 with no weight. One of my buddies just went a 5.24 over the weekend on the 26 X 8.5 tires. He has a small block with two stages.
