DEF the best looking KB I've ever seen (JDM's White truck)







Although Gator wasn't there, His truck was
He's got one hell of a Beast, CONGRATS GATOR, (and WOW it sounds AWESOME)
AND YES YOUR FASTER THAN I AM OK!!
JDM made passes in it, I saw a 11.7 "on the brakes",
def got another good 1/2 sec and more in it, YOU DID IT PAL.....



A HUGE THANKS to Vinnie and Teri for their hospitality,
they opened their home to me, gave me a nice room to sleep,
and I THANK YOU GUYS VERY MUCH
BTW, Love the new place, WOO HOO..........

V's interior













GOD I LOVE HER

BTW, Leeann was the ONLY one getting to make passes today
($%@$%@($%(@$%@($%@(&$ )&$%@&*$
CONGRATS ON YOUR NEW PERSONAL BEST SIS, WOO HOO.....
It was great hanging out Pal (even if I didint get to race) &@[email protected]($%@$(



(why is everyone always throwing me the bird)



THE WORLD FAMOUS DONS BOLT!!


AIR JORDAN
OR SOMETHING ???











THATS ALL FOLKS
Sorry not always easy to get a lot of good shots, so much going on....

Basically what it came down to today was, waiting on a huge line
to get in the track. Then waiting on the Tech line for a good hour
to two, got there at before 8, now it's already 10 and I find out
I cant make a pass to at least 5:pM (I WAS NOT HAPPY BOUT THAT,
"NO ONE WAS") Most were signed up for TT and QF. (I was signed
up for Quick Ford only) LA and the others got to make 9 hundred
passes in the Street Class (I DEF decided my next slicks need to
be DOT) and Tuff Truck got a pass in @ 10:45 I believe it was ???

So we wait, and wait, and wait, and wait.....
We again find out Quick Ford will def not get any passes to after 5,
I needed to leave by then, (I had 24 hours of freedom and time was
a wasting) V worked it out that I could upgrade from QF to TT.
They only had 1 pass left to make today, but after all I've done I needed a pass,
so WTF it cost me a hundred bucks to make one pass.

Since it was the first pass on this motor, and I truly had no clue how the
truck would go down the 1320 the first time, I simply COULD NOT even consider going for a #.
But I did need to test the Race Tested Plate
so I can get it back to Denny for final production.
I put 100 HP jets in, set the system to delay for 2.0, then sprayed fuel
before N20, only pulsed it @ 80 %, had the max flow set to 95%, so thats
really 75 HP, BUT I completly shut the system down after 8 seconds.
Being I delayed it for the first two seconds, I only used n20 for 6 seconds total, and only @75 HP.

Truck launced awesome on the converter, HATS OFF TO G MAN / FT.
But many had hooking problems today so all I got was a 1.72
(not great, but for the 1st time using a stall Converter, I'll take it : o )
N20 came in and WAM I was pinned, system worked flawless as usual,
truck ran great, strong, and steady. The new Motor sounds great screaming down the track,
and feels niiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiice, WOO HOO, (there is nothing like a launch) The Mag was def pulling and screaming,
all seemed awesome, but then all of a sudden my 6 sec's was up and WAM the n20 system shut down
and the truck was now on a 12 degree pig rich program and
it fell on it's face and I ran a crappy 11.97 at a terrible 111.53 MPH

I really cant complain, considering I've never ran the n20 so minimum,
and we found my Batt red dot on, and I could not use the heater for
1 single second $&%@#$(%@$(%@$(^%@$
I basically ran what I've been running, with 25 % less N20, for
1/2 the time. There is no doubt if I had other passes, I would have
stepped the n20 up as much as and added 75 HP more, and let it go
100% the whole run, (thats what I did last year)

Great time, great people, great memories,
BUT unfortunately NOT the day for test and tuning.
However I got some good info to bring back to Sal, and there is no doubt
in my mind next time out I will be 11.5 or better.

THANKS EVERYONE
GO GET UM TOMORROW

Dam and I'm in the top 10 too $%(@$^%@$(*%@$*(^%@$*(^@$

HATS OFF TO YOU SAL/PSP,
We got ourself one great Built Motor, NOW IT'S TIME TO STEP IT UP, WOO HOO :smt023

Looks like evryone had a great day. My wife and I were there to spectate. I was going to bring the truck and "show" it but chickened out because of thre threat of rain - and it did rain off and on all the way back to PA. Instead we brought her Stang GT.

Good luck to evryone today.

Count me in next year. Great show with a lot of good people and tons of cool trucks.
Despite the rain it was worth the trip to see, and will be great to join in the fun next
year. Good job to all on a great representation of our group.

RAINED OUT ???

SO does that mean my class never got to run and there's a rain date ???
Am I still in it then ?
Still #10 ?
WHAT ???

LA, I came home with 100.00 out of 400.00 I left with, and have "$1.00" left this morning :sad:
I DID keep my promise to JR, and we made it to the new Star Wars Movie by 7:59, :D
(1 minute to spare), then went to the local County Fair yesterday (in betwen the rain)
and ate up the 100.00 in junk food :LOL

Rob, nice to see you again and glad you qualified in the top ten! All the "showdown classes" including Tough Truck were rained out and will be run at the Richmond Virginia event. June 24-26.

The bracket Classes were started, but not finished so any winnings were totaled and divided amongst the remaining drivers.

Not sure what round SF got to, but the remaining drivers got $10 each..
QF got one round in then I was the first driver(pair) to go down the track in the rian for round two...I won the race with my wipers on...but that round was thrown out and the money was split between all first round winners....$76.

FF recieved $264 each!

It felt good to FINALLY make a pass again, I may not be in the Big Boys League Yet,
(and surly didn't run any ET to speak about for it's voyage run), but it felt good, I gained some trust in it and next time out I WILL pump it up and look for mid to low 11's

I had fun this weekend, despite the rain. :(
It was nice to see everyone again... Can't wait to do it again! :)

Jamie - I don't know... Saturday night I remember going home w/ Don and JimIII. After they dropped me off I heard they were trying to pick up some girls w/ my truck on the way back to JDM. I was passed out after that until about 2am... I woke up and thought it was 6 already. Unless something happened in between there that I missed. :LOL
