Shelby/Dodge Nationals...I win again!

After racing at Indy on Saturday, then driving to Thornhill, KY to enter a pts race there....then racing at Indy on Sunday and getting semi finals money, then driving to the Shelby/Dodge diner that evening in the Cincy area, then having the lifters changed on the car I was using and that not fixing the problem I left 4:30pm in the Pit Bull (05 SRT4 stage2) and drove to Edgewater drag strip and won the bracket race. VERY easy win...on every pass I was able to lift at the 1000 ft mark or a little after. Only one car was dialed quicker...a CSRT4 was dialed 13.15, but he was never near me. Even though I have run 12s I don't get the traction at Edgewater that I do at National Trail or at Indy so I was running crappy 13.5s...treed them like a coon dog! This was my 9th Shelby/Dodge championship!

What was a riot was last year when I took the 3 banger Geo Metro 5 winning rounds while never going faster than 65 mph in eliminations.....I have thought about taking the Geo out to the United Manual Transmission Racers series.....let them guys sit on the starting line while I disappear into the darkness.....most would melt their transmissions by being on the converters forever.

I meant the bracket racing class....the UMTR guys would not melt converters since they don't have them....but might blow their motors while sitting there at redline waiting for their side of the tree to come down.
