Okay Rapid, besides doing the amazing driving that you've been doing, how are you?
Let's see, where to begin, we decided after Ennis in 2008, after being completely exhausted etc....to take a break and park the funny car. It was well needed, and maybe 2 races overdue LOL.
Well, in that time, we started helping some pro mod teams with data and clutch, etc.....and found it to be very interesting, better payouts and a lot of local stuff to help promote DFW businesses at the same time, plant our feet into the ground and get acclimated with the area. Moving from LA to Austin was a Bust, but Dallas has much more to offer, so decided, unlike beverly hills, it's the place to be for me.
Now, fast forward, I closed the music studio over a year ago, so needless to say, no dinero,no racey racey, And we all know how marketing $$$$ are right now. This was actually fine with us since we needed a break anyway.
So here we come 2011 and this is the outlook: We have acquired a Pro Mod roller that we are building. I am co - owner in the car with Charlie Ford. The car is going to be called "Charlies' Angel" with a she devil in an angel costume playing some kind of mild musical instrument.
We are aggressively pursuing marketing /alternative advertising opportunities and will be running both cars. The F/C will come out later in the season, with testing to being in the pro mod as early as October of this year.
Oh, I skipped something, I now own and operate an automotive & performance shop. It's amazing how many gal clients we have and the horror stories that we've heard from their experiences of auto repair, we are new at it (coming up to 1 year) but we are the perfect picture story of if you work hard you WILL WIN
Thanks for reading, I'll be back later, please tell me what you guys have been doing, I need to read Vic's post and Rapid's Weekends out, but now I Have to get to work, we are picking up repaired parts today and putting together dummy motors for a photo shoot next Thursday at North Star Dragway.
ttyl and have a GREAT WEEKEND!!!!
