Ran at Great Lakes Dragaway

What a rush! I ran a whole bunch of [email protected] with 2.4 60' then ran a best of [email protected] with a 2.2 60'. I was just way to scared of standing it up. I actually did twice. There's nothing like launching then having your handlebars get in the way of your view.

Since it was "slicks only" I got to race with a bunch of 9 and 10 second cars. That was humbling! Here's one of them.



At the start of the night I had to line up with a few of them which absolutely sucked because I couldn't even hear my engine bouncing off redline! The left lane was prepped for slicks and the right lane was for all street tire cars. I got thrown in the street tire lane. Then someone's Cadillac CTS-V fragged the rear end right on his first pass. After that I got to use slicks only lane and race against a bunch of 13 and 14 second cars. That made me feel a little better.


I'm definitely going May 10 if all you Wisconsin and Illinois guys are up to it.

Glad you had a good time beating up on your cycle. Nice times 11.80s. Before you go back, order up a strap its worth 2 or 3 tenths ( 888-4pingel )
