Much better day today - Len showed up with the Vette fixed AND painted although the paint didn't blend perfectly. I had some dynamite lights - a .522, .509, .501, .503 and got down to six cars in the Sportsman class. Faced off against a local "heavy hitter" with only 3 rounds to go and decided to be a little careful since I was sooooo close to being red all day. BIG mistake!! I had a .562 light to his .553 and went an 18.39 on an 18.31 dial and he had a a 13.55 on a 13.50 dial. Margin of victory was .042. The Sportsman class is 13.50 and slower and the guy I lost to has a car capable of mid 12's(can you say SANDBAGGER?)

WOOO HOOO - Runner up in the Sportsman class today at Cape Breton Dragway. Even better was the fact that everyone that was ahead of me in points went out in the first round. I will sleep well tonight LOL.

Oops - forgot to add the pics. Like a dummy I left my camera at home and only managed a few with my cell phone. A couple from around my truck in the staging lanes, one of Len's Vette and one of Doug's dragster. It was HOT out there today..........

On Friday it took me 9 1/2 hours to do what was normally a 7 hour drive to Miramichi Dragway Park in New Brunswick.(construction, heavy traffic) As I was putting the truck through Tech it started raining so Friday night's Time Trials got washed out. Saturday morning I crawled out of the motel and headed to the track only to have showers delay things for 3 hours.

First time trial the truck was cold and coughed briefly once on the line before it decided to move. Result of that was a dismal 60 foot time and it reflected on the ET. The next run was qualifying for the ADRA points chase so I looked back in my records for a MPH that matched the first run and selected the ET from that run as my dial-in. That was good for the #6 position and lane choice in the first round.

Round one? A .456 redlight. I picked up my time card, turned left and went out the gate for home. No traffic, no construction, and a bit too much speed at times got me home in exactly 6 hours. So that's 16 hours in the seat, rain(twice), a hard bed in a cheap motel, junk food, sunburn, one time trial, one qualifier and a first round redlight but I would not hesitate for a moment to do it all over again.

Crazy drag racers! :D I can't believe it takes that long to drive ANYWHERE in Nova Scotia! I need to pull up a map and re-educate myself! bp
