My ZL1 at June 1st WannaGoFast 1/2 Mile Drag Shootout

I had a blast at Bult Field; the most fun I have had in a while actually. I am currently editing and uploading videos from my GoPros right now, so here are a couple of me against a modded 392 Challenger from a dig.

Was anybody else out there on Sunday?

Sounds fun, anyone else notice that Dodge doesn't brake for crap. Have to watch out for that, I have guys crawling up my ass at my 1/8th mile track after I smoke them and we make the turn because they don't upgrade the brakes.....

....and we didn't need to.


Very cool Videos

Great videos. They let you run in a vert with no problem? I need to find something like that!

I checked with the event organizers a couple of months ago to confirm this, and they cleared me without question; there were several Corvette convertibles running there as well. If I wanted to run with the top down, I would have had to install a cage and a 5-point safety harness.

138.1. I ran three races total; two from a roll (which averaged around 133 mph, and the one dig that was a 138.1). I wish that I could have stayed longer so I could have broken into the 140s.
