As I've posted before, one of my most favorite group of folks here are the guys and gals from the Gary's Speed Shop team. Over last winter, they teamed up with a new engine builder, Nick Ramey/RoushYates and went from just over 200 to the mid 220's with their NASCAR car.....VERY impressive!



Today team owner Gary Hart gave me a T-shirt with their newest design and here it is:





REAL COOL and thanks Gary!  cheers

I really hate posting pictures here. But I really like those Lincolns since I was in high school and they were late model used cars. i wish I was closer to those guys. I have stuff they might like to use.

Rich, I was telling the owner of the Lincoln about your post and he was curious about the fuel injection.
Is it Hilborn? He said they only made 7 of them.


 
He also said he has had '54 Lincolns since he was 16 and I'd guess he is in his mid 60's now.....COOL!

The next car after the tractor ran 101+ was a Karman Ghia that ran 94+.
I ran upstairs in the timing trailer and told Brian how embarrassing could that be.....Getting outrun by a tractor!!!!!  grin

The injection is indeed Hilborn. It's just that they thought they were making them for a SBC. Silly guys.

Hey, Geronimo.  We hit 90% of data allowance at a bit after 1PM.  I think I guessed right again.  How's it going?

Good guessing!  grin

Things are major winding down here and we are hot lapping.
We are scheduled to go to 4:00 PM but I think it will be just about 30 more mins.
Has been a GREAT meet!

FIRST THIS NEWS UPDATE:
I forgot to post yesterday, but the ECTA folks were told by the Air Park yesterday that the September meet is a GO!

Now with today's news:  grin
Another GORGEOUS day for racing here in Wilmington. Temps started in the low 70's and got to the upper 80's but we did have a breeze.....the as always, Wilmington headwind at around 8 - 10 mph.

When I got to the track this morning, I rode through the pits and it seemed that about 1/2 the trailers were gone.
As I rode over and through the staging lanes that indeed was the case. I kinda felt that we would be ending earlier than 4:00 PM. Keith made the decision that we would run till we did run out of competitors and that occurred around 3:15 PM and the meet was called.

Stats for this meet are:

604 total runs

Fastest motorcycle: Dan Oaks at 237+


Fastest car: C. Douglas Johnson at 223+


All-in-all a GREAT meet and many thanks to the ECTA volunteers!  cheers

Gregg

I would like to shout out BIG kudos to the Jack Bateman D/FCC team out of Canada.



799 D/FCC William (Jack) Bateman Bateman Racing 1948 Fiat 194.3845,  179.6407,  195.2278,  196.0784

They have been coming to Wilmington for the past several meets and have had transmission issues and never made a full pass.
Well this weekend those issues were resolved and he was dancing right at 200 with several upper 190 runs.
WELL DONE JACK AND TEAM!!!!!  cheers

Gregg

Another KUDOS goes out to the Jack Iliff''s 3522 G/GALT Nissan 240SX team.



3522 G/GALT Jack Iliff ICE Racing 1990 Nissan 240SX 158.2278,  159.5179,  157.7840,  160.1423

And as he told me, with the 160.1423, he is just a few tenths shy of a mph for any N/A 2.0 liter class record here at Wilmington!

Way to go Jack and Team!

Gregg
