Smack down Uncle Frank

So last year Spookfest at Cecil for some reason did not have any good call out races. Everybody seemed to be looking to just run a good # in the cooler weather. So JLP day is this Sat at Cecil and the weather is going to be 62 to 72* so chances are trucks will run well but PB's will be at a minimum. So why not have some fun and lets get all the Lightnings that show up and race each other regardless of the numbers.

Uncle Frank is not leaving the track until we race our True Blues. I don't care what the track conditions are, what my 60ft is or what # I run, we are racing. Here is a little taste of JLP day in 2016 UF. Sorry Kev (Smokin 02) but i have to show UF what a lightning can do to a twin turbo stang!!!

Jeffv333 and hightechredneck like this.

02 TRUE BLUE, [email protected], 1.359 60ft

2.6 KB record holder!!!

Come on now dude, 60* weather is BEAUTIFUL racing weather, PB's are totally possible for folks, don't start back peddling with excuses now like 60's aren't beautiful days for racing lol.

That said, looking forward to seeing some grudge match lineups! I know there's several Team JLP vs Team TITS lineups happening! Redrum, Paulie, and I think 1 other from team TITS against Robert, Johnny, and whoever else from team JLP to pair up for some fun and bragging rights.

From what I've seen from your earlier T&T sessions at Atco though, you've already put the Smack Down on Frank a couple outings this season. You were at those T&Ts with marginal prep and street tires making passes and long waits in the staging lanes and cracking off strings of consistent 9's and more 9.7's. It was crickets on the other side of the fence lol. Looking forward to seeing the same outcome just side by side this Saturday! lol

Some sort of random bracket should be made with an overall winner at these events. Could make them a bit more fun.

tried to reply and it's not showing up.

Anyway I was going to say there are awards at this event. JLP sets it up for an open laid back T&T but with trophies for #1/2/3 fastest L/HD of the day, and #1 JLP tuned vehicle of the day (any vehicle), and on occasion there has been prizes for best R/T or 1st perfect light, etc. They also have a ton of raffle prizes.

It'd be hard to do a full bracket for this event, as many just come to make some easy T&T passes, or want some grudge matches that they pick out. There's NMRA for formal brackets, there's Pinks @ Atco for just beat the guy next to you sort of racing, there's Spookfest for record breaking attempts in ideal weather, and there's this event for open T&T with some awards at the end for fastest passes and grudge match ups. Little of everything depending what you want.

Maybe if you made it down to an event one of these days you'd see! lol
