We had a great weekend at MRP we won the NHRA Wally for Pro Street from the rain delayed National Open on Saturday and round #2 of Bad Dog Shoot Out on Sunday and set the CPSA MPH record at 243mph. Here's a look at the 6.07 230mph pass. Now were off to Edmonton AB to do some damage at there big Pro Mod race this weekend.

Not much going on with Pumpkin right now, but got some new bling for Green Stone Brewing. We just got the Blichman Tower of Power which automatically controls the mash tempature. Just have to install the ignitor on the propane burner and do a test run with water only to calibate system and then we will try it for real on this years batch of Pumpkin Ale.

Lock de-icer to stop the butter flies from freezing shut. Methanol will freeze them shut if you don't.

THX Bud. The down side was we were having chute issues after putting on the tall wicker bill on the rear deck. Buddy was off the throttle way early fearing the chutes would not blossum correctly, turned out to be the right call.:( That would have been our 1st 5 second run if he could have stayed with it right to the finish line. Oh so close to that magical 5 second run.

THX Bud. Were pretty pleased with it right now. For our next trick were going to build one on our own this winter. Just so happen to have a 69 CF Camaro body kicking around.

Pumpkin Ale is one of Green Stone's seasonal brews. I guess the short answer is yes because of it's fall brewing time.:(
