1st time with this group and my car...I just took it easy...started in the rear of the heat and passed a couple cars..could have passed more but Doc Hudson was in the way and all over the place...start behind him again in feature 2nd row when we started the race I moved up and opened a lane and let the fast guys to go through and deal with Doc...then a few laps later I went to pass him and clipped the big balloon tire on the inside corners with my left front tire and messed up my steering linkage so I took it back to the pits...
Next race is in June at Farmer City another local track...have to change gear for that track it is 1/3 mile
The engine ran great better than I expected..plenty of power with the new smaller tube step headers I built with merge collectors...The car itself handled very good also...but had some bouncing coming out of the corners....My set-up guy thought my shocks on the rear are at too much of an angle. He introduced my to a shock man there and he confirmed that anything over a 15 deg angle they become inaffective...might have well taken them off...so I am going to get with him soon and he is going to spec me out a shock package and I will be changing the mounting of them...he agreed to help since I wont be racing against him...as he is the top car in his class...

It is always good when you bring the car home in 1 peice, a little linkage is nothing.
Cant wait to hear how you do on the next outting.

A bit more fun than regular drag racing? Great job.

More seat time for sure...I'm still a drag racer at heart and always will be(more to come soon)..but I raced on a dirt track before I ever made it to a dragstrip back in my teens..in an AMC even....and I wanted to give it a shot before im too old....it was now or never...I proved to myself I can still do it...So back to the straight tracks soon...
