Either way we were keeping it in the family! I tried to intimidate him with my old age and treachery stories. It must have worked.

Had a great day with the Slanted family and the car ran well. It kept getting faster as we went. It ran a 8.16 on a 8.15 dial with a .016 light in the final against Ryan. Just have to try it all over again tomorrow. Really nice father son time!! :D :D

Greg’s post was a typo, right? He meant 6.91, not 6.19!? :shock:

I like the idea of having one day 1/4 mile and the other day 1/8 mile at tracks that can/will do it.

PS: congrats to Rick for the win, and Ryan for another new record. Seymour must be ginning ear to ear.

Ryan and Rick in the final again for the 1/4 mile race.

Ryan's semi final pass was 11.008 @ 117.65 at A weight.
Semour built slant cars are fast.

He's dialing 10.99 :mrgreen:

In 2011 after I had lightened the car to 2125# I ran a couple of 117.46 runs aided by a stiff tail wind and 1,000' air density. I didn't think it would ever go faster than that, but Ryan has found some more horsepower. Based on the horsepower it takes to go 6.91 in the 1/8 it should be capable of a 10.89 1/4 but it's really hard to push a 62 Valiant through that second 1/8, maybe someday. Ryan has sure proven to get a lot more performance out of it that I ever did. Congratulations to Ryan and his Dad! I am watching it rain down in Charlotte where they were supposed to run the NHRA national event today so it looks like we lucked out on the weather for a change.

Yes another great day of racing! My car ran a 12.99 in the second rd and I dialed a 12.96 in the final. Ran a 12.9598. If my math is correct I broke out by .0002!! :D But I met my goals of a 12 second time slip and 100 MPH. :D :D

I believe Ryan is really close to locking up the Championship unless the Tulsa race is a really big one and Jack tows out there and wins it! I am sure Rob will update us soon. I'll will send him the points later this evening!

Mason Dixon has one "Super" fan that comes out to most of our races. Brian Sword is my wife's 1st cousin and he loves to come see us race. He likes to help us pull our random ladder. Thanks Brian!! :D :D
