I agree, a must do. If I come I will give you a heads up.

Worst way to lose is a red light, lost the finial round at gateway by breaking out by .003, second worst way to lose

Went to the divisional with my son this weekend at Epping . He ran his best ever E.T. with the car at 6.76 ! He was a little late first round and ran .02 over his dial . Still a good weekend . Saw Chuck [coupemerc ] and I guess he is getting real close to racing his car !

Good weekend at Englishtown ! My son BJ made it to semi final in Top Dragster running consistent 6.70's at 199 . Billy G lost first round of comp but still ran pretty good after a motor change on Friday .

Went to Maple grove last weekend with junior for our last race of the season at the Pa Dutch classic . The air was good so we did a little testing with both nitrous systems . He ran a 6.54 at 209.37 . We were very happy with that . Now it's time to take both cars apart and get ready for 2016 !

What was the ET
What was the E.T.? If it's anything like my shed (shop), it would take all day. A coffee, ponder over how to do it, another coffee, shift gear out of the way, another coffee and a chat to the crew chief/missus, start moving race car into position, shake head, reposition into better location. By then it's beer o'clock. Then sit in car doing race car noises. Finish beer with a stupid grin on face.
