A little birdie told me DadTruck ran in the 15's with his Barracuda. Very Happy

Is Josh Woody driving the ex-Wayne Morgan that Meril bought back? It would probably be a metallic blue. One of the great slant 6 race cars of all time. Congrats to all the winners.

Greg won the 1/8 mile Knoxville race.
Rodney was runner up in a disappointing starting line breakage. Just a dead battery, but very disappointing.

Brian and Rusty were semi finalists.

They ran us through as fast as we were ready.

More racing today.

Norm Foster forgot his car at the track, so I'm going to race it like I stole it! Twisted Evil Twisted Evil

First round winners was the same cast of characters as usual.

Ron Hamby
Rodney Hargis
Greg Ondayko
Rusty Heisten
Lou Madsen

I ran a 12.53 @ 103 in Norm's Dart.
Hey Possum!! Thanks for building the Slanted Attitude Dart so well! It's still a pleasure to race. Wink

And thank you Norm for letting me race it today.

Round 2 coming up next.

Lou redlighted against Ron, so he ran it all the way to re-set his D/Unlimited record to 12.75 @ 107.

Greg had the Bye.

Rodney broke out against Rusty by just a hair.

Round 3 is Greg versus Rusty and Ron with the Bye.

Stay tuned. Wink

Finals is Ron and Greg.

Rusty and Team Green should be satisfied with their semi-finalist...

They re-set about 4 records this weekend. Wink

It looks like I'm going to have to call Howard Davis after all... Twisted Evil

Clay City 2018!!

Heads Up Grudge Match between Team Green and The Hillside Six!!

Hey Howard..... Are your ears burning...?

People want to see that aluminum head you made and see if you still are... The Fastest Normally Aspirated Slant Six on earth... Wink

If it doesn't make a race in 5 years, I say it doesn't exist! Laughing Laughing
