You guys should really consider putting a few of us together in a booth at Fest in TX. There are a bunch of folks that would love to talk to you guys in person I bet. I'm going regardless...but I'd bet you could get 4-5 cars pretty easy for a booth.

How about some shop customer team racing? Minimum of three cars per shop, drop high and low ETs, avereage the rest. Shop with the lowest average ET takes home bragging rights.

One of the Houston shops would win, just based on potentially available racers. Or maybe ADM or Lethal.

Thing is the da on my 10.75 and 9.99 passes was good, but still in the positives. Floated around 200-300 all night. Some negative da and I would hit 60's and 80's probably.

I could tell you who wouldn't win, lol.


Be fun but I think ADM would take it. Be close though.
