Good luck! 15k to win, we won last weekend and Edmoton's Castrol Raceway Pro Mod record is only 6.03. We ran 5.95, 6.01 and 6.05 last weekend, were ready. Both cars got fresh bearings, fresh clutch, oil and are loaded in the hauler along with a spare bullet just in case for a Thursday departure.

Still yet to post video to Youtube from last weekend. But it's all transferred to iMovies, just not enough hours in the day. For those who are curious my Youtube channel is "Mercuryman96".
