If it was a qualified ladder, nobody should be on ladder without making a qualifying pass period. Further if it's multiple qualifying pass's you must alternate lanes as well.

Maybe I'm glad I didn't make it. This stuff is not cool.

I feel like a heel after the whole vert/roll bar thing. No tech/No run should apply to everyone.

Yup. Me too. That dude should have just came and went. Tech was obviously quite lax. In the northeast they'll pull you for going fast with rubber valve stems. You need metal ones after a certain speed. Jeff looked the other way when I asked him about it. So if the track director could care less so will the rest of the staff.

This stuff needs to be cleared up before the next fest. They need to decide if its an actual event or an exhibition. Rules need to be in place and followed. It left a sour taste in everyone's mouth.

Wow, I wondered what the deal was with the shop cars running in your class. I just figured since it was happening you were all ok with it. That's a rough deal.....sorry for you guys.

There was no discussion about it. They just did it. The other unlimited cars had no choice.

That was the easiest tech I have Been through. Did not even ask me to open the hood. I could've had a NOS bottle mounted beside the supercharger lol.

Suppercharged SS even after your car broke it still sounded badass. And thanks for letting me fill up my air tank.

Thank you. We were figuring 9.60's after the first pass or two. When its not eating itself it goes pretty good.

About the tech thing. At events like this a strict nhra tech cannot be followed,. A stock zl with a set of drs and a good tune would require a cage, and that kind of aggressive thinking will kill var count. That being said, a safety HAZZARD needs to be avoided.

these fun runs are based on a common sense approach to beingbsafe and still allowing for fun... my car was messed uup all weekend and onlybmade 1 decent pass, I still had a great time... next year a guy who is PART if the community should be present and in charge of the drag side, not just the autocross because texas is going yo bring some cars. .
