I think you are sandbagging, stabbed the brakes like they stole something from you and slowd to near 30mph just before the traps to keep the car in the low 14s. Trying to spare the racing world the ego bruise of another low 13 v6

I was hoping Donna had video of the 14.247 run, but no such luck. We did take 790 pics between the two of us.

Over 550 photos taken between David and I. Unfortunately little did I know that I had one setting wrong during the manual mode and many of the photos turned out bad. IT was my light source setting. So if any of you camera experts know how to fix that once the photo is shot that would be a big help.

The videos are still down loading. There were over 40 video clips.

I took a ton of photos of you when you were up against that white Camaro. However, they are iffy. I will post on for you to see what I mean. When you raced him the second time I was out of disk space. We filled a 16 gig card.

Is it just my iPad - or did a lot of the picture posts get all jumbled up starting on page 43?

14.2 stock in an auto? Damn thats almost unbelievable. Maybe a track error as the trap speed was messed up?
