Ran my first race
« on: June 26, 2016, 04:28:26 PM »
After doing a few T&T session this year, I went down to Sikeston MO and entered my first race.  I ran two classes, heads up bagger and bagger ET.  I did well enough to win both classes.  The entry in heads up only had a few and mine was the quickest by a good bit, but the ET class had some tough racers and I am really proud to have won.  I drew a bye into the final by having the best reaction time, and had to spot the other guy 1.3seconds but went around him before the finish line and lifted for the win.  I actually won $$.
I also ran the best time I have yet in open time trials, a 7.09.  Try to attach video below

Yes it is. We ran a rail there for a while. Going to hit T&T a week or two before I run just to get the feel of things

will do!  I plan on getting up there this year.  The tuner should get a lot of credit for how it runs!  Finding the tenths and hundredths is big fun for me.  Got a little more tweaking on the clutch, get my 60' down another .10 and I think it will run a 6.90's 1/8 which should get me into the 10.90's 1/4 mile
