Bethany's Emma and my Dragonbird (Sam) goin down Bristol
Trophies: 6 Give this video a trophy



Took Dragonbird to the opening of the Bristol Street Fights last Saturday, March 31, 2012. My best friend and sister, Bethany (Firebirdfest) also ran her '88 GTA, Emma. This was her first time ever racing on a dragstrip. She done good for her first time :) She did scratch third and let up on the throttle before gettin to the 1/4 mile mark, but hey, the first time down you're entitled to a couple mistakes, lol. But all in all she did real good her first time. She even beat me out of the hole, lol. I ran a 14.3 and Bethany ran a 16.1. Of course she would've ran faster but those 2 booboos cost her a bit. She was gonna run one more time, but mother nature decided it was time for it to rain :( We still had fun and now Bethany has been bit with the drag race bug :D

Really cool for both of you...it looks like so much fun. I've never had the opportunity to run on a dragstrip. Lucky you! Thanks for sharing the video so we could share in the fun...

Loved the video hope to see more, and I hope to maybe get on the strip on the Bandit Run, I'm sure there will be others wanting to also. As for the gas prices going up, I think we will just have to live with it and plan accordingly, cut long trips or just make them every two years. John
