It is sad. Tracks keep getting shut down for suburban growth or warehousing districts.
I remember when they did SuperChevy shows @ Baytown. We went to a few of them as well as race events.

Re: Ok Boys and Girls it's Storytime

Well I screwed up second round. I haven't been good on the tree the last two races. Coming off of two .020's and one .022 light I rolled .008 out of the delay box shooting for a .010 to .012. I was fighting the sixty foot also. I have been able to predict loss of 60 ft ET morning to afternoon but not this past weekend. If I had been perfect on the tree my opponent would have been hard to beat. My 60 ft fell of 5 hun more second round. I should have been 10.87 to .88 on this pass with room to scrub ET at the finish line.

Re: Ok Boys and Girls it's Storytime

I haven't posted in awhile because I'm dealing with internet issues or the lack of.
Two weeks ago at the Houston National Event I had a couple of good time trials on Friday. First pass I was .001 on the tree and 10.94. Second pass I was .007 on the tree and 10.906. I felt pretty good going into first round Saturday morning. Unfortunately I slipped to a .029 reaction time first round. The young lady I was racing had the best package of the round with a .005 light and 10.907. I was toast and couldn't even be mad about it LOL. I'm currently getting ready for our Double Divisional at the Texas Motorplex on May 19th.

I had a few friends at that race. All but one went out first round in Super Street. My friend Tony Jones went to third or fourth round. He drives a really nice yellow 67 Camaro.

Re: Ok Boys and Girls it's Storytime

Well I had my third and fourth race this past weekend at the Tx Motorplex in Ennis, Tx. I arrived on Wednesday morning and attempted to run the test session. I made one pass and everything seemed ok. I went up to make another pass and had to shut it off about 300ft out. I can't believe this tank rolled all the way to the first turnout lol. I was by myself with no help at the time. So I'm sitting there wondering what the hell is wrong. I decide to fire it up. It wasn't making any noise for say. So I drove back to the trailer. It sounded ok idling but sounded like crap revving it. I pulled the right valve cover first looking at valve springs and such. Just the normal WTH is going on routine.
I didn't really see anything so I started checking valve lash on that side. When I got to the #4 intake rocker it just flopped up. There was no pushrod to be found. Ol' Ken was getting ready to head out to come to the track. I had to tell him (Wait for me! I can't find my pushrod). I pulled the drivers side valve cover and found the #4 intake pushrod on the other bank next the #3 pushrod. I got it fixed but ran out of time to make another pass.

Re: Ok Boys and Girls it's Storytime

I made it to the third round of the first race but lost by giving up the stripe unintentionally. We got one time run on Saturday and were supposed to get two. They changed the schedule due to incoming weather. We ran first round of the second race around 2pm Saturday. I screwed that one up bad. I flinched and was .042 on the red side. We may be in Tulsa, Ok in a few weeks I just don't know right now. Fuel prices are killing all of us.

I was there & was frustrated for you on that one..... I watched them finish the round & when I made it over to your trailer you were rolling out.

The weather definitely screwed everyone schedule wise. I'm not sure if it even rained out there @ all (it didn't in Dallas).

BTW.... That staging pic was awesome until that lady walked into it

Dang man I thought about you possibly being there. The Boss told me to load up and outrun the storm. I wish I had known you were there. Those are good pics too. Thanks

Re: Ok Boys and Girls it's Storytime

No worries. Figured that was the exact plan (get out & beat the storm).
