    Default From Indiana

    Hey everyone, Name is Kenney from Deadfly Indiana. Used to drag race a 69 Camaro at the Hill. Also ran at Indy and Muncie. It ran a best of 11.73 1/4 and 7.51 1/8. Got rid of it and got into Winged and non winged sprint cars. Wanted another street car so got rid of the spring car and built a rat rod. Lot of people don't like rats but I built it and it is a safe fun ride. It is a 38 Chevy Panel truck on a S-10 chassis, built 454, 700r4 and 4:10 gears. It is a cruiser not a race car but it goes too.

    Welcome to the site Kenney.

    Still a couple weeks left at the Hill this year, come on up and say hi!

    ETA: Your Panel is PURE AWESOME!! I love it! I know you said 70 miles north of Indy and north of Laffayette, but I can find NOTHING on a map. Where is Deadfly? Closest major road/intersection? Also, you need to post up some pics here of that bad boy!!

    LoL, It is actually Delphi. I have a habit of calling it Deadfly. I am just off state road 39 between Delphi and Monticello. Would definitely like to get up there again this year. Wife has been sick and she is my first priority. Looking forward to getting up there though.:smile:

    Sorry to hear about your wife. You might have wait until next year. This coming weekend is the last scheduled race of the year. If there are anymore (wasn't last year), they will be weather dependent. If you decided to try and make it up this Saturday, drop me a pm and you will have a place in the pits to hang out!

    Wife and I are thinking about coming up Saturday. Looks like Pro practice starts at 2:30, then the other classes and eliminations by 6:30?? Also do you usually park in the pit area or out in the parking area? I keep teasing my wife that I am going to run her HHR in trophy!! Be my luck it would break and I wouldn't have a way home.
    I see what your cars look like so you shouldn't be hard to find. Supposed to be cool so cars should be running good.

    Yes, the times are right (three time shots, roughly an hour apart) and you pull in and park in the pits. Only time there is a "parking area" is during large events and it's across the street. You should run the HHR in trophy, it's only 1/8th and your probably just going to break 60mph. Plus, I bet there won't be more than 2-3 entries and 1st & 2nd get trophies.

    I will be there around noon.

    ETA: We'll get you home.
