Jason-
No doubt. I had a lot of fun up there in a short period of time this fall.

I've even been accused of running juice on the combo as a result of the times I was running. LOL

Bob- paranoid?

I'm considering the VAMP racing series. They have several index classes. Something like 7 races next year. Usually on Sat. track rental days.

You'll have to be on the brakes.LOL The quickest is a 10.0 I think. I have enjoyed all the Vamp race that I have been to. The Banquet is at the end of January you might go to get a feel for things at the racers meeting. Last year they had some great BBQ.

I know Garrett hasn't been on here for a while, but he's got that 67 Camaro running 5.77@117.29 now, same basic 468 combo with I'm sure a few tweaks since 2006..

That is a great picture, I bet with the chassis twist the left side front is up and the right side is still in the beam enough to make the stage beams stay on. That is how close it has to be to hit a good light on the tree. The car is already moving before the ambers go out. With the amount of wrinkle in the rear tire it would hard to say that one did't go red though. :D
