Island Dragway 10-12?

Temps are cooling, leaves are turning, cars are breathing better. Anyone going to Great Meadows T&T tomorrow night?

We are all heading up to Lebanon on Saturday. The tech is very strict at Island. I got the boot back in March of 2010. I'm not looking to get it again!!

Damn if it weren't 3-1/2 hours away. I'm living in the 12's but I do like seeing the big boys fly. Have to settle for hot dog Johnny's and island rd.

Watching your car run is like a rerun of your favorite TV show. While it's good it also gets boring seeing the same thing time after time.

Now me on the other hand has you at the edge of your seat. Is he gonna step all the way on the gas. Is he going to break the beams. It goes on and on

I'm going to build a drag strip. The side I'll race on will be 1/2 mile long. Your side will still be the 1/4. I figure this should make it fair!!!!!!!!!!!!


You do realize that the goal is EVENTUALLY to improve on your times....Not go backwards! Shit, soon enough my kids will be coming to watch you run a 10.99 and those bastards haven't even been born yet!!!!!!!!!!!

Allow me to be the first to congratulate you on another 11 second pass. Hey, look at the bright side, you're saving a ton of money not needing to get a cage and slicks!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

why u mad bro. If I follow the path that you've blazed I have at least another 100 passes to go before I need to worry about getting a 10. C'mon, you've set the bar really high with them 2 9s passes in 2.5 years. And lets not forget one was with an assist.

It must be a comforting thought knowing you can go to any track and not fear being asked to leave.

Have I told you lately that I was in the 10's first time out with the lil ole blower. And that was before you "supposed" king of a PD blowers was even made. No converter, no gears, none of those fancy do dad's you have now. Ill prob remind you about this tomorrow as well.

Yeah Al Bundy, you've told me until my ears bled. You know that and a 10 spot will get you into a movie.

But really, what have you done lately.

I'm waiting.............

And waiting







Still waiting.

We'll see, weather is extremely difficult to predict beyond 1-2 days.

I work all Saturday too so I don't have a choice.
