    That was in 2009. The last few years it was running 9.0's to 8.90's
    That car was BAAAAD Fast for what it was.

    Ross is a great guy, we'll miss him at this weekend.

        Yup, that's him. Thanks for the video, Doug. Ross is doing fine and is playing with his Nortons now.

          Not to hijack the thread, but what is the insurance deal with a wreck at the track?
          The recent crash at Magnolia got me wondering since that guy took out a spectator's truck also.

            Dan Fabians red 64 won Mod tonight. I think it's because he has my old hood. My 1st pass was a poor 12.60. Swapped carbs
            11.22. Added a little jet 11.17. Theres still some issues but getting closer.

                I didnt hang at the track much in 08-09 cuz of too much yada-yada-yada. I found some older pics of him running the classic in 2007.... also 2006, his dial then was 9.37. Lovely and strong machine it was.

                A little rain here in Lodi this morning... hope Norwalk's not getting it. It's about an hour NW of me, so I figure they are.

                  Why hasn't anyone posted up how their weekend went?
                  It was hot and humid. Saturday late rain was a bummer.

                  Don't want to hijack the thread.
                  I'll start another this evening.
                  It was eventful as every race has been for me this year.

                      It was a great weekend. First time out with the new motor, and it went well. Hats off to everyone involved with Monster Mopar, they did a great job... the rain on Saturday kind of made things a little difficult because no time trials...but it all went well. I even got lucky and made it to the Semi's on Sunday.

                      Norwalk is always a top notch facility. The track was perfect all weekend, and the ice-cream was excellent.

                      Going to do a little check up on the car and off to Rock n Race at Dragway 42 this weekend.

                        I had a Great Weekend, went to the semi's in Friday nites NSS/Hemi gamblers race, Saturday was down to 5 cars with the bye to semi's when an oil down and rain finished the night. Sunday made it to the final and Won. Had a lot of good close races especially 2nd against 64hemi330sedan. I made 20 passes for the weekend. I was pitted in middle between my Ohio buddies and Michigan buddies, it was a good time seeing everyone.

                          That's pretty funny.
                          Could you explain that?

                            My car has done well in the past. Dan bought my old hood when we built a new carbon fiber part. I told him the winning streak came with the hood.
