Congrats to all you guys that made this trip.
Very cool picture
Did you happen to talk to Dave?
He's a pretty cool guy.

Cool pic, that's neat that you got to go do that. Sure looks like a lot of fun.

Bruce, I did not get a chance to talk to him, I actually only ever saw the car twice, once in tech and once when he had it in the trailer. I think he was pretty busy with the whole pepboys deal, yet alone working on our cars. John, definately a very cool deal, but not for the faint of heart by any means. You better know how to work on your stuff, BFE is not the time to try and figure stuff out, yet alone where to get parts.

Eddie congrats on making it through the week, I caught several of your passes on the live feed. I know it had to be a crazy good time.

Dang Ed, wish I had read this sooner. You were right in my back yard. I've been kicking myself for not going to Beech Bend to watch.

Looks like Beech Bend had some teeth. They've been doing a better job with prep the last couple of years.

Thanks Harry and Craig. Craig, you should of come over, I was actually gonna give you a buzz and see how far away you were. I don't get up that way often and it would of been cool to see you again. The track was pretty good, but not like the other three, they were very well taken care of. I was actually worried about wheelstanding all week, yet the car showed little signs of doing it, so for the last pass I tried something different. I lowered the launch rpm by 300 to flash the convertor harder and put the bottle at the correct psi(thanks to a carnivore bottle heater!!) and away she went. I didn't push my luck after that and loaded her up. I am not all that good at converting video, but the vid is on hotrods dragweek day 5 coverage, 5hrs and 12 minutes in. Best of luck to you with all of your car updates, i wanna see that thing run.

I'm an hour from Bowling Green. Cut my teeth at Beech Bend. Wish I had come down to see the action and give you a hand.
Good to hear the Nitrousaurus box is working well for you.
