Car Model*: More than I should have...
Here are the results from the four races held at Wilkesboro, NC this weekend. You can also see that Ryan has taken over the points lead with his two wins and Runner Up finishes.

Once Seymour validates the records that were set this weekend as official I will add 20 points for Ryan, Lou, Jack Jr., Jack III, Norm and the Kentucky Poser.

Records were set for:

Ryan Covalt - A/Gas: ET = 7.0540 and MPH = 94.24
Lou Madsen - B/Nitrous: ET = 8.1111 and MPH = 83.60
Norm Foster - B/Nitrous: ET = 8.2677 (No 1% Back Up for MPH - 88.30) That 88.30 would take the record... for now... I asked Norm to check if he has a good back up pass. :wink:
Rob Simmons - B/Nitrous: ET = 8.9681 and MPH = 74.27
Jack Everhardt Jr. - B/Nitrous: ET = 10.4201 (No 1% Back Up for MPH - 65.19)
Jack Everhardt III - D/Nitrous: ET = 10.0523 and MPH = 71.55

Thanks for the update and pictures too!

Congrats to the record setters, winners, finalists, and all those slanters who participated!

Rick, I guess you had to go 4 rounds without a red light to win...Way to go!

That is former national champ Norm Foster in Ron Parker's old white Dart that he painted purple.

Don't feel bad, I went -.051 red on a .400 Pro tree in Iowa last weekend. Fortunately it was only in the final of my match race. :oops: :oops: :oops:

Thanks a bunch for the updates, Rob, and to others for pics and such. Wonderful weekend.

Rob, note that Norm and Jack Jr will have MPH records that will be their lower MPHs backed up by the (higher than 1% more) faster MPHs. They need to give you (or Seymour) the right slips for those slower MPHs.

Making memories, one pass and wrench turn at a time!

Lou
