Erik,

After talking to the paris team yesterday, the car is totaled. The sad part is, it had 2 runs left before being put into a museum. Dom is fine, just upset it happened.

Eric, we walked the pits LQQKin' for the Vulgar Display of Power but couldn't find you. Must have been in the lanes when we looked & in the pits when we were lookin' through the staging lanes. :oops: :oops: :oops: :oops: Too much ground to cover I guess. :?:

Pro,
I elected not to race saturday and just watch.......Thursday .setup night we all went and staked our claim and then drank too much.so friday iw as a little puny and went out in round 1.......the heat nearly killed me........so since we live only 20 miles away we went home and I slept in saturday and we got out there about 1.30..... we went to the stands about 4:30 and thats where i was most of the night and i did drink but i paced myself all my buddies........didn't...........Sunday I went three rounds and they all lost first round.........I didn't come close to winning but I had fun Summer did awesome and the car ran respectable...........the best part of the weekend was yesterday after first round..... an older guy pulled in my pit in a ford ranger he had a hoverround wheelchair on the back....he must have had MS or something like that as he didn't talk very well.....he politly asked if it was my car i say "yes it sure is".he then said whats the motor?" I say a 572 RAT!! he said DAMNED!!...... leaned out the window and said " i saw the last run.....boy it sure goes good!!..but i cannot see the score borads how fast was it?/.I say " i went 7.93 thsi morning and that was a 7.97.but it has gone as fast as 7.73 ith w lenco in it".......he shook his head and said " DAMNED thats AWESOME!!".......made me smile........he wished me luck and i stopped traffic so he could back out.......i saw him a couple more times.every time he had a big grin and he'd give me the thumbs up........that made my race day PERFECT!! :D .........on friday i had an older gentleman who had had one too many walk over to the car in the lanes as i got in he shook my hand and said "i had one of these but that M.F. did run like this!!........then he happily stumbled off!!. 8) ERIK
