NHRA National Open...Pro ET

Got to the track this weekend and got 12 passes in at our NHRA National Open. The car ran between 10.60 and 10.64 all weekend. Weather was 90ish and DA was around 5000 feet.

Took a long time to get the car on the road this year but well worth the wait. The car ran great. A big thanks to Davenport Motorsports, Lingenfelter Performance Engineering and Jannetty Racing Enterprises.

Had the modified NW 102mm throttle body on and never had any issues at all with it running 14 lbs. boost.

I had my GoPro mounted to the roll bar but it sits a little low so the video isn't the greatest.

What a blast...

Nice. Have you run in better air at all, looks like you could run high 9's if I mentally correct for DA.

Probably won't see better air until late August or September. I'm not sure about 9's at our elevation (2300 ft) but for sure theres a tenth or two to be had.
