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.

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.

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.

I think I'd keep a pistol close at hand with a beauty like that in my life. Oh, your daughters are beatiful too.
