We had a successful weekend thanks to all the volunteers and event coordinators. Our goal was to find out what the Corvette would do with the stock drive train, get our 125 and 150 licenses, and possibly set a record. I don't believe anyone else was running in the C/GT class and the standing record is 139.3. My wife Heather and I both qualified for our 150 licenses with top passes of (me) 146.2 and (Heather) 146.8. Our goal next is to improve the aerodynamics, add some horsepower, and qualify for our 175 licenses.  :cheers:

Plus you learned the most important rule when spouses are running the same vehicle, ALWAYS let the wife run faster. Jon Sullivan says the ride home is so much more enjoyable that way.  :-D
