    Default Off to Indy!

    Off to the NHRA Summit Summer Racing Series Division 3 ET Bracket Finals. All the top points racers from Indiana, Ohio, Kentucky, & some ILL too, IIRC(600-700 cars). 3 days of a.m. to p.m. non stop racing action! I have the air mattress and will sleeping in the trailer for three nights, and my alarm clock will be the sound of raw HP and open headers.

    If winning was easy, then the losers would be winners.
    I wish I was the man my dog thinks I am.

    It was a great time! The weather was great up until Sunday (when Marcel showed up, of course), which was cold and rain delayed for a few hours. I won first round of the Race of Champions on Friday with .002 rt, then lost second once I decided to lay back a little and settle for .03-.05 rt's and hope I had enough on the other end to make up for it. I went red first round in the Camaro on Saturday. I won both rounds in the Vega on Saturday, then lost third on Sunday. It was nice to see Marcel and to be able to check out the fight Sat. night! Not a huge boxing fan, but WOW, anyone who likes competition and a quick turn of events would have loved it. I didn't get many pics, and they were all h-bodies. I planned on getting more of others, just didn't pan out. Still going to be hectic this week getting ready for another 4 race weekend at Bunker Hill. Saturday, we have the regular Super Pro and Sportsman race, along with the "King of the Track" race (all racers who have won a race this year racing off for the title), then Sunday is a $5000 purse, footbrake only race! Should be another helluva weekend!

    WOW - Would never have guessed that many Vegas were there!

    I'm glad we got a chance to catch up a bit! Saturday was fun - loved the fight and the steak was pretty dang tasty itself!
