US 131 MARTIN MICHIGAN SEPT 8

All I can say is WOW!!! If you missed it, you really missed a super show. Denny's group (GLNFCC) put on an OUTSTANDING night of racing. The temp was cool, the track had bite. When I got in the car to go home the temp was 55. The engines were cracklin. I got to see Heidi & Daryl, Rocky, JRX and the girls, Mike and his mom & dad, and of course Denny.
I was hopeing to see the BANDIT, but he didn't make it. Understandable as it's a long ways. BUT also absent were a certain Gorilli and his wife Sharon (the chase truck just didn't look right with out her.)

Now theres LOTS more to tell, and I'm bustin at the seams, but Rocky is not home yet, and he should get to tell you first. I'll give ya my take later, nite-nite.

Daryl I know you were plenty busy, but I hope you got to see the FIRE show the PT Cruiser wheelstander put on.
1/4Mi.-1/8Mi.-1,000Ft.- 4 wide....it's ALL good.

GREAT to see you & Heidi too. Those videos are great. Folks that burn-out by Rocky was OUTSTANDING!!! There was smoke commin off the car till 1,oooft. The vid shows he didn't get stopped till past the 1/4mi. finish line. I was in the stands and heard the croud, "now thats a burn-out!!!" and "THATS what i'm talkin about!!!". The place went nutz. I've seen a lot of burn-outs in my time, even John Force back in the day, but none,..... I say NONE better than than this.
Hats off to Rocky and all of Dennys group (GLNFCC) they put on a quality show. The "Dazed & confused" FC also made L-O-N-G smoky burn-outs. Not to mention the old school dry-hops. If you want a top notch quality nostalgia fc show, go see the GLNFCC, you'll be thrilled. Tell em Zappy sent ya, :P :D :D
