Daughter teaches me how to drive!
 
So here we are at the drags yesterday. A DA of about 4700'. We're in Utah so there is no air here. Driving my NA Camaro still trying to break into the 12's. My best run was a 13.005. So I got close. I decide to let my 20 year daughter who's never raced in her life have a shot. She races against a 650HP Maggie SS and the results were incredible. She runs a 12.7 and only loses to the Red SC Camaro by .383 of a second. She's a natural!!

She's driving the Silver Camaro.

I'll have to scan her time slip since I was so excited I forgot to zoom in on the boards. By the time I did they had blanked them.. :(

Will definitely be working the car some more and letting the daughters drive. One of my other daughters Alyssa who is 21 also wanted to run it and raced a local Pro shop owner. Two SIM camaro's and she beat him with a 13.0 flat. Here's that video. She got a terrible start too. My car is an auto and Jordan's was a Manual. :headbang:

Awesome, glad it did! You can only imagine how I felt yesterday watching them drive for the first time. I was all adrenaline. In fact, it was more thrilling watching them then driving myself. Think I'll invest more time and money in making them drivers.
