Took it the track today..

I went to the track today hoping to set the Whipple 2.3 record, Best pass was a 9.809 @ 135.95 The DA was higher then projected.
On the 2nd pass I got the .000 light. Perfect Light.

Good luck to you! Uncle Frank will have the "Silver Assassin" out at Spookfest in two weeks so his current record will be challenged on both sides of the country. Good stuff!

In cab video, You can see the triple zeros on the score board as I go by.
The new NHRA rules have tech write the fastest it can go on the window..., As you can see the 8.50 on the passenger window.

The more I see this truck launch, the further it seems a 1.3 is out of reach for me.

Just a Randy Smith and Tuned by norm Lightning....

Marty, I'm leaving now with my tow pig and trailer to pick you up for Spookfest. Can I have you CC # for fuel and tires


You and I have matching ET's now !!! But I got 140 MPH, that's what some good air will do. You got 9.70 easy in your future.
