We went to Showtime Dragstrip on Sunday March 16th, an NHRA 1/8th mile track in Clearwater, Florida. We knew the bog was gone, so we turned up the wick a bit, here is the result :mrgreen: Video >> http://youtu.be/2l_BDno4gpE

Wild ride !! :shock: I'm okay, the Safety stuff works !! :mrgreen: This was last weekend, in front of Friends, Family, and Sponsor's Family... We were on pace to knock off a new career best, when gear-lube got under the RR tire, recorded 100 MPH on my side :roll:

Well, after 10 1/2 months off due to the crash, we got ourselves booked in at Orlando Speed World, March 28th Drag Race for a Cure of Cystic Fibrosis. We had an absolute blast, raised money & awareness for CF, and recorded a new personal best ET !! :mrgreen: We did have to break the Vette body out of mothballs, as the Corvair wasn't quite ready yet. 8) Was like wearing a favorite jacket, you haven't seen in awhile !! LOL :lol:

Congrats! Be sure to update the drag racing lists... if we don't have you listed for 2015 yet, do a COPY of your 2014 entry and edit the year and ET... Thanks! bp
