might sound strange but it's hot as balls all across the country right now and with 99.99% of board members being daily drivers or fair weather once a year at the track peeps, I doubt any one is going on a regular enough basis right now to generate any stories. I am not going if the temp is above 75, I can tell you that, and it will be until probably november..... whats the point, I won't run at full potential and standing around in the heat for hours is not what I call a good time.

dragging my race car around through the summer sucks enough, thank god i broke my transmission at the last race. now I don't have to race until fall, lol.

It is HOT in Texas and I haven't made it out to the track lately. I may try to get a couple of runs in before C5Fest, but after C5Fest, No runs until fall weather arrives....

Well I've been going regularly but I don't really post most of my stories since mine aren't as fascinating as the SS's

On the upside, I did beat a challenger rt two weeks ago!

I'm also trapping 98 mph and want to break a hundred really bad so I deleted my rear cat and just got my ported intake manifold! This weekend I will see what happens. I also want to break into 13s as I'm currently running a 14.3 in this heat. If I can run a 13 in 104 degree weather then I'm sure I can run mid 13s when it get colder

it's way too hot in Oklahoma/Texas right now for a weekend racer like me to make it out to the track a lot. Plus I have been wanting new rims/tires before I go again... the LS ones are crap for any kind of performance application. Trying to get my father to bring his SS out the next time I go as well.

All of my racing lately is mostly just testing different intakes at the dragstrip, no stories to tell, just gathering info, I haven't posted anything about the last couple trips as the results have been nothing to write home about...

Made it to the final round one night, lost the race on the tree, made it to the semi finals another night, and broke out by .026.

I'll be testing the 4th intake, which is "supposed" to be the best at the track, this Friday... We'll see how it fairs against the rest... I'm hoping it will surprise me and actualy do what they claim, but somehow, I doubt it will.

HRD did you guys race on just Saturday or Sunday too? I had a wedding on Saturday and predictably did not get up super early the next day.

I think you went around 13.doh in Atlanta, how did you run this past weekend? 3300 DA ay caramba.

Last time I was out I was helping on the TT 4th gen 7.40@195 WS6, ran a local MDRA 1/8th mile race at GLD. Won it, ugly win since the other guy wheelied mid track and we had electrical issues... car only went 5.3@136 hehe.

I won't be stock after this week, and plan to make a few passes Saturday morning at the MDRA race, heard it will be high of 85F so I'll have to correct for weather (to feel better)

I'm having technical difficulties at the moment, so no racing until that's resolved.

Always hold a little to play the stripe with.

Youngest daughter had a 3 thou package winning the NHRA Bristol National event a few weeks ago in Super Gas....63 vette rodaster running 9.90 @ 168 on the stop.....car can go high 6's off the stop.

We also won Super Stock at the same event and are targeting a National win in Top Dragster so we can be the only driver in history to win 7 different classes of National Events.

Check out the July 6 issue of National Dragster, page 4 a 1/2 page picture of daughter, page 50 for Peter, page 56 for Emily, and both on the rear cover.

There....thats dragracing!!! We can contribute alot more but it rarely generates interest on this forum.






And a little money race from the month before....Peter won the $5k the bext day also.


Won the World at Pomona last year (in SG):






Current NHRA standings all time history of NHRA we have Peter #2 in Sportsman career National Titles (World)
#5 in Divisonal Titles (World)
#7 in National Event wins (National Championships)

1 of only 2 in NHRA history with 6 different class National Championships tied with Jeg Coughlin, Jr. and trying to bump Jeggie out this year with 7 if we can take Top Dragster in one of the upcomming events.

We used to race full time with no breaks and 5-7 drivers, but the shop owns me now so not near as much time on the road.

Got alot more but dont want to hog it all up.

HRD...What are you going to do first as in modding? I'm on the fence now between a stall and changing the rear gear. I'm looking for a 3000-3200 stall or a set of 3:73 gears just don't know which one would help the most. I ran a 12.80 in Memphis Sat night @ 109.sixty ft was in the high 1.9's all night but i was on street tires. gonna take the dr's next trip.
