Bad Night at the Baytown Dragstrip

I get there and the tree is not working so after about an hour of waiting... they decide to use flags... so no time slips either, and before I get up to race a motorcycle leaks oil on the track. There were a few pissed off people to say the least, especially being the first night under 80 degrees in 3 months.

But.....

When I did get up to race a Challenger SRT8 (not the 392) pulled up beside me, so it was a race worth watching... He got the better launch then me, but it only took about a second for me to catch up... at the end of the 1/4 I had him by about 3 car lengths. So it was worth it anyway, I've wanted to try one of those out for awhile now.

Before I had a chance to race again a car leaked oil all over the track... so we just left... Biggest crowd there in a while.

Try again next week... Anxious to see what my new times are with my latest mods.

I had a few friends that were there last night. There were quite a few unhappy people... Hahaha. And there is little to no tech inspection at all at Royal Purple.

Snapped a picture over the Baytown NHRA flying into Houston. This was morning after and guys were loading up the trailers. Couldnt get one of the racing on the day before because it was so cloudy.
