1st time down a dragstrip today

We had our club family picnic at Farmington Dragway today. It's an 1/8 mile strip. First time ever going down a dragstrip. 1st run was 10.08 @ 75.08 mph...Went 4 times. Weather was moving in, and I was able to get out there before it started to rain, but it cooled things down some. I was able to hook up and did 9.49 @ 78.416 mph. If it was a 1/4 mile the ZL-1 would've beat me, but I was able to make good on my reaction time and keep the advantage. Had a blast!!!!!

Scott! It helped that Randy had some wheel spin off the line too. I wasn't trying to race him, as I didn't think i had a chance given the times he was running throughout the day. I was only trying to better my earlier runs and just hook up and not mess up any shifts. Coming across 1st was the unexpected and pleasant surprise, and I'll take it

I've found, in any competition, that I do better if I don't compete with anyone. I just try to do it the best I can. It works better for me.
