What a day!! I am totally worn out and have just enough energy to type and drink hot tea. 13 hours at the track - 9 hours setting up the track and the rest helping my pals Len and Doug with their new rides. And man was it COLD - 10C(50F) and high winds.
Len finally got a couple of shakedown passes in the Vette. I told him just to go for an easy drive and feel the thing out but he just HAD TO do a burnout.
Doug had the dragster out for the first time with a fresh 632 and he got the same advice as I gave Lenny. He didn't listen either LOL but I have to give them both credit for lifting early. Neither of them made a full pass since there wasn't a lot of rubber or traction compound down. Also I tried to teach both of them how to pack a chute but only wound up being appointed as official chute packer for both cars.
Here's a couple of shots that makes a person remember we're racing at an active airport...........
