It was a challenging weekend. My best run was 139.23mph on Sunday afternoon. Sunday was a repeat of last year where mid day the winds got a little gustier and were not coming head on anymore and had a slight cross wind. I had 1 pass where I used the entire lane and then some just to get down the track. I had another pass where I was really close to the end and my rear tire ripped loose doing mid 130s. I tried to steer into it but it just got too far out and I had to ease off the gas to straighten back out.
Comparatively speaking to all of the cars that were close to the same power level I had a pretty good weekend speed wise but the low speed numbers makes it seem like a bad weekend. Once the winds picked up on Sunday late afternoon I made the call to pack it in for the ZZP crew. I was pushing 26-30psi and not making any progress and there weren't going to be any record setting runs so I figured let everyone get home to their families a couple hours earlier than planned. We were all exhausted anyway from the heat and humidity.
For me the best part of the weekend was just getting to hang out all weekend with rabtech Ghost and his wife Cheryl and larry . We were at the same hotel and our trailers were close to one another each day so we were all visiting a little throughout the day and then got lunch together on Friday after we got rained out and dinner on Saturday.
Thanks Kyle! We definitely had a great time this weekend and we really appreciate the hospitality and camaraderie of you and your crew. While the weekend ended without any records being broken we did manage to get both slings back on the trailers under their own power and with no personal injuries.
Thanks again and we'll see ya in R kan saw! LOL
