      Rick--

      I left Atlanta at 6:30 AM Sunday morning and rolled into my garage around 10:30 PM...TONS of rain in Alabama and the car took a beating but got home safe. Had to leave James and Debra in their Heritage brown with SolarGold, but stayed in touch to make sure all was well.

      Great times this past week, I'm looking forward to all the posts.

Hooked in first, second a different story all the way down the track 6500 rpms till thrid and it hit good still turned 12.966 with 112.81 mph. I should be in the 11's. Oh well back to working on the Dragon "again". By the way went up against a Nissan 240z with a Toyota Supra turbo motor in it. Representing us well as I did beat the turner he did 16.265 in the 1/4 miles at 102.31 mph. punch image raspberry image

      The wife,grandson and I made it back on Wednesdsy. I was the outsider driving the charger Daytona. I got some thums up from some Runners, as I had my TA plate in on front.
      I hope to make it next year in my 97 if I can fix the oil leak, or my 81SE if I can finish the LS1 conversion, nevertheless had a blast the 2 days.. I dragged the grandson along now he wants to drive it when he turns 16. smile image

      See ya next Year hopefully Dave starts the run next year from FT Worth/Dallas Texas.

      Well, I cheated (live 26 miles from Year One - drove 1,956 total miles not counting Saturday). I got home around 11pm Saturday night after dinner at the Tex-Mex place after the Lanier Raceway experience. I really enjoyed this week! It was great to see everyone from last year and meet some new folks this year! I had a great time with the Buford T Justice crew and the Loon and solar gold, and donny hayes, and Cattail... and ... and ... I can't name you all!

      If you haven't seen Loon's video of the Dragon's tail, check it out! Only a Cactusloon could produce such a video! LOL!!

      Sorry to hear that James had trouble. Great car, great folks! Let us know if we can assist!

      Best wishes to all for a great year! We should do this more than once a year!!!!!!!!
