I entered two classes today, Pro & SuperPro. Got whacked by a young gun in round 2 of Pro, but was able to gather up the pieces and string together 6 rounds in SuperPro! Wading into the deep waters of 7 second, 160+ mph dragsters loaded with delay boxes, starting line enhancers, and throttle stops with an 11 second footbrake car does not exactly stack the odds in your favor. I was good when I needed to be however, and lucky enough when I wasn’t really good to load up all comers. The Payout in SuperPro is a little better than Pro as well, so we helped out the engine fund today as well!

The highlight of the day, besides the $800 check, was putting a .004 package together in rd. 4 just when I needed it.

Nice job! I’m surprised they let you run superpro. Our local track won’t let the no box cars in.

Sweet! Great car and one hell of a showing as a driver. I quit bracket racing when the electronics came in vogue. I got back into heads up racing. That is very impressive you are foot braking it and are cutting a light and running your number. Wow! Savor this a while.

congratulations on a great effort .
we dont get to double entry here or cross enter 2 classes , so i rarely run box or dragsters . I know i'm hit or miss when i do but as i have gotten quicker its actually gotten harder .

I try to pay particularly close attention to your car, mainly because it is so stock looking, classic muscle car, and a great performer.
Outstanding job and congratulations! I'd need surgery to wipe the smile off my face!

Thanks. I appreciate the comments. Currently gathering parts to do a refresh / rebuild on the bullet this next off season. If things go as planned, it’ll be a lot faster next year, and look identical.
