Pepperoni Bros. thought the course was excellent and the drive to pits and both courses the best in years, not one puddle!

I personally thought that the short course was great.  I ran my fastest speed so far of 161.89 and it was the best handling the car has been.  The return roads were comparable or a little better than SpeedWeek.

We had a great time,ran the short course first because we had to qualify for the long course and re-license since the car and I had not been to the salt since 2010.Long course was good except it got pretty lose between the 3 and 4 shocked.I will bring my bigger balls next year and leg it out 5 miles grin

I just noticed (1246MDT) that they've posted more results on the USFRA website.

Is it accurate that there were only 14 new records set at this years event?

Now they're showing 16 more on Monday, for a total of 30.

I hear your balls get bigger with age.  grin
Don't know for sure but hope to find out if I quit procrastinating and can get it back to running condition and get down to Salt Dyno Midwest.

Johnboy,

you don't know how happy I was, when I saw that we got you back in one piece after your bad luck at the Speedweek....

Stay crazy, brother.
