July 2008 update: By far the most fun I've ever had racing was at Norwalk this year. I got a chance to go up there on consecutive weekends. July 11th-13th for the Fun Ford event and July 18th-20th when I went back up there for the Oldsmobile weekend. My car usually doesn't run that well in humid 90 degree weather so it wasn't much of a surprise when I ran 12 teens at FFW. I made it down to the final 16 cars in Quick Ford on Sunday. With the heavy rain in the morning some people headed for home but there were still over 200 cars that hung around. One of those runs included a .501 light that allowed me to beat a very good racer who had a .508 light. I ran a 12.23 on a 12.20 dial and he ran a 10.74 on a 10.69 dial. I lifted at the very end or I would have gone under for sure.The following weekend was even better. I took off another Friday so the boy and I could drive the Mustang up to Norwalk to meet my brother, who trailered his truck, and race at 5:00 that night. It was the first time we ever had a vehicle that was missing motor parts hauled to the track, but it all worked out in the end. Check out page 6 for more info on Lorne's 455 Olds powered truck. After spending the better part of three hours and a full tank of fuel getting there I left it cool for a while. After the heads, intake, carb and headers were back on the truck I went to make a pass. I put in 5 gal of Sunoco 110, opened the bottle and ran a 11.05 @ 124.4 in 90 degree heat! I knew right then if it stayed together it was going to be a good weekend. I didn't know how much N2O was left in the bottle from last year and it proved to be not much when it petered out half way through the next pass. No biggy, the track speed shop has plenty. I had the bottle filled for the morning. Once again my lights were all pretty good, real good for me. It was very warm and it liked the 11 teens and twenties, a little slower but very consistent. I never did find out what it would've run naturally aspirated that weekend. After 2 time trials and 2 rounds I thought it would be best to top the bottle off and add 3 gallons of fuel before they started running in round robin and couldn't get to it. I ran in the stock class hoping for a 2' trophy and jacket. I made it down to 3 cars before we got dumped on bad from a storm that came out of nowhere. Since it was after midnight and there was so much rain they called it. My last 2 passes were 11.226 and 11.224 both on 11.22 dial ins! I wish we could have gotten the last 2 rounds in. I got a quarter finalist trophy and had a blast, so that's all that counts. I couldn't race on Sunday, Oldsmobiles only, but I hung around to watch Lorne and his wife race the truck along with all the other Olds powered stuff. Even better was the fact that Lorne's truck made 11 or 12 passes, a best of 12.60 @ 107 with Sondra driving, and the 150 mile trip home. That made it a perfect weekend of racing.
