I got 4 runs today at an 1/8th mile track. This was my first time at the track. I pretty much can't launch for crap...but I'm hooked. I'm not going to waste time with a scanner

Run 1
Spun so bad I started drifting towards the rail. Missed 2nd...twice
R/T 1.42 :eek:
60FT 2.4839
330FT 7.0393

60FT 2.4987
330FT 6.6307
1/8ET 9.9767
1/8MPH 73.36

Run 3 More spinning than others but in a straight line
R/T .9919 :shakehea:
60FT 2.3936
330FT 6.4305
1/8ET 9.7300
1/8MPH 74.39

Run 4 :dontknow:
R/T .7798 better
60FT 2.4539
330FT 6.5285
1/8ET 9.8520
1/8MPH 73.86

The 18's were on which couldn't have helped but I got no wheel hop on the launches. I don't remeber what I was launching at but it couldn't have been more than 2700. That's my biggest problem...my 60ft's suck. My 1/8 traps are in line with some slips I've seen where they got 14.7's in the 1/4 mile so :dontknow:
I wish I could go back tomorrow...maybe next Sunday. I've raced tons of times from a roll and it's cake compared to having to launch too.

I almost forgot...the real reason I was there was to watch my dad in his 68 Camaro. I don't remember what he ran on the motor but when he hit the nitrous he ran a 6.62 :eek:
He had a 1.50 60ft to go along with that. He's been doing this kinda stuff for a while. I didn't see the mph but he was pretty happy with it needless to say.

Red Line in Caddo Mills...I probably could have had 6 or more runs if I would have just kept getting right back in line. I was only there for 2 hours.

I think the $50 to race is when they are having an actual event w/ payouts. It was $15 last Sunday and has been everytime I've gone to "Test & Tune" with my dad. It's $8 just to get in the pits...so I figured why not pay 7 more and take a stab at it.
It hasn't been that busy lately so you can get a good number of runs in. Like I said I got 4 in two hours and I was trying to make sure I could see my dad run too along with shootin' the shit with some people there. It's a good track...sticky and flat.
