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:eek: 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.:D

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 :D.

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:eek:. It makes you about scared to let go of that button :D. Needles to say it went in the trailer after that pass. :D

WOW !!!

KY Mustang, dang, it looks like somebody put a serious amount of KY Jelly under those rear slicks. Tell Ms. Becca to leave that stuff in the motorhome.:) That was some serious driving to pull yourself out of those situations.:)

Dan,

I'm proud of you for getting out there and fighting through all those rounds. Hope you get it fixed soon!

Damn Randy that looked worse in the video than what you described over the phone. Glad you kept it out of the wall & really glad that you were able to find the leak. That was scary !!!

Dan, you had Tweety dialed in.. It sucks that the trans screwed up on you.

I was down on the big end watching Randy when he done his Joey Chitwood imitatation:eek: I wasn't for sure it was going to stay right side up for a second....It was way wilder after Becca messed her pants and lost him on the video;) It was truly a hairy ride..Randy done a great job of saving his car ,it was doing all it could to get on it's roof and hit the wall head on..My hats off to you my fine friend!!!! I told him when he got back ,that maybe we ought to check in to buying the mold off the guy who made the new front clip for him.When the car went across the track ,all I could see was the roof on it..it was way up on two wheels.We talked about it when he got calmed down ,we're convinced that his seat time in a stock car and power sliding 4wheelers really helped in reacting fast enough and correctly enough to save his car;):DI'm still nervous from it, I can only imagine his feelings today.:D:D
