Hello everyone, and a very big hello to this weather on the East Coast! The season debut of the "War Horse" is just two weeks away, so it is good to see this beautiful weather. I am sorry it has been so long since my last update, but my free time has been very limited. Between my day job and side work, then putting the funny car back together, I've had only a few free hours. The car is about 90 percent finished and will probably be in the trailer by the end of next weekend, ready for the IHRA National Event at Virginia. I have a feeling the racing will be some of the toughest in IHRA history and we might even see the first ever all 5-second field at Virginia Motorsports Park. It could make for a very interesting and exciting race. I can't wait.
It has definitely been a long winter and I am finally beginning to look forward to racing. I feel the goals I have set for this year aren't totally out of reach. Our main objective is the NHRA Division 1 series points chase. The whole team has its sights set on a top 3 finish. It's definitely going to be tough and stressful, but the entire crew and I have devoted our summer toward being one of the top teams in Division 1.
This year we are proud to announce that Mr. Gasket has signed on as a new sponsor along with Engine Works, who is back for a full year. Bill Pratt's draglist.com is again on the sides of the War Horse, along with our longest-running sponsor, Quaker State, who is also back for the 2001 season. I have to say it is a great feeling when major companies see a little something that makes them feel good about helping you try to achieve a goal that others say you can never do. Well that is all for now and see you all soon!
