Won 2 times this weekend

So we went to the track this weekend to start off the year, Got up there Friday night to help my brother but he was all set for I took my car out of the trailer.

Signed up for King Of The Hill and anyone can run bikes Top Mod and my car Street class car.

I had to race 4 Mod cars 3 out of 4 of them using the button.
1st round had a bad light but ran right on 2nd round I got a .011 light and pushed the other driver out, 3rd round the other guy was all over the place I dumped it way early.
4 round I raced my brother and it was a good race.
I ran a 12.253 on a 12.25 dial with a .020 light he ran a 12.121 on a 12.09 with a .006 light
Then we drove home together

Sunday was a points day and the air was all over the place but got it done.

1st round I dialed a 12.18 ran a 12.191 with a .011 light
2nd round bye run
3rd round other driver went RED
4 round I ran a 12.36 or a 12.32 dial off the gas the other driver fell off bad
5 Final the other driver went red .002 so I just hit the tree hard and went red too keep them guessing. AND WE WON 2 dam times in one weekend and have a 22 point lead the 1st race of the year

What so great about this is the last 2 seasons I have never got out of 2nd round until around June or July but then I just get on fire for the last part of the year, and still finished 3rd and 4th.

So I just hope I can keep this going I'm not used to doing so good and the cool part is I'm still running a old hurt junk yard 460.

Now time to get ready for Pinks All Out
