Thanks Dean, you all had your helmets on and I was trying to get as many pics as I could before everybody started running...had no idea everybody would be sitting there for 2 hours  :-P. I'll see you in June  :cheers:.

Congrats on the fast runs  :-D

This my first meet as a spectator in 6 years and was impressed with the bleachers and sound system that has been added. I would like to make a recommendation though that they get an announcer to state the name of the driver and class the vehicle is running instead of just a number. Any additional info like the current record in that class and the fastest that vehicle has ran would be great too. Maybe one day there will be enough participation to sell a program book listing all the entrants.

Dean, Make sure you buy the picture with your front wheel in the air.. :cheers:

I have a copy of it and it rocks ! ! !

First thing I did when I saw it was to ask for a higher res image, after looking at it and blowing it up I swear the tire is off the ground!

DW,
Awesome pictures you took, love the pictures withe the "laundry" being dropped at the lights!
 
Again, great pictures folks !     :cheers: :cheers:

Wow, what a photographer - Is this at the traps, or before? I don't recognize it, especially with the trees gone now. Without a boost controller, it gets a little light in the front before 5th, but if this is in the traps, then it's got to be a result of a bump. The accel is pretty slow by the 1 mile.

Good eyes John   :cheers:

hey Dean, cool pic!

There is a pic of Charlie and another one with TRNorBRN661 (Gary) with the front wheels off the ground at that spot right before the traps. 
On those pics their back wheels are still on the asphalt patch, front wheel off it, floating about the same amount yrs is.  Looks like a lil track "bump.

Looks WAY cool!!!!
