In the words of Todd Dross "ya know who I feel bad for.....anyone who is not here"  What a beautiful track!  We had the best time this weekend.  Too many things to mention, but the one thing I have to say is a GREAT BIG THANK YOU to Team Guthrie and especially Deb Dross for helping Josh get in the 2 club. What a great rush that was.  I know Dave had the biggest smile on his face!   Thank you everyone for such an awsome weekend and thanks to all the bike guys and gals who kept me sooo busy in impound with all those records!!!  Can't wait to do it again!!

P.S. Donna Timney YOU ROCK!!!!

Hey, I wasn't trying to be smart ....despite my reputation , I was just curious.

We all know that feeling of being brought back down to earth....."hey , you wanna see what I've got in the shed?"...( me, last weekend I was having a "de-junk" and I'd sold a front bumper to some kid on freebay)
He walks into the shed, says " gee whiz, that looks like a good hobby" in a voice that says "get me out of here this is all strange AND uncool"

The great thing about this website is it melds together a whole bunch of "each to his own" types.....like, I wouldn't build that thing, but I respect the guy who did and while I'm wondering about a few things he's sitting at home wondering why on earth I'd build what I did when I can almost NEVER use it.BUT, you can bet we'd murder a few beers while talking over the top of each other if we ever met.

I love it in all it's weird wonder.......And he drove it to the track, trooper!

While I'm here can anyone give me the d's on the white Ford ( what we'd call here a Falcon ute) from about 64 or so pictured at 3 0'clock here?
Few understand what I'm trying to do but they vastly outnumber those who understand why...................

I think Ali hitting 220 on Saturday came as a surprise to many of the folks considering we still had some wind on the nose at the time.  I believe he hit 229 before all was said and done which isn't shabby on a stock engine on nitro,  Then again, I am still a bit new around here so...   :|

John, be nice to Milton -- he's doing Nancy and me a favor today.  And Milton -- since you run a production bike you can be forgiven for not realizing there's a big difference between what Ali was running (Nitrous oxide, a/k/a nitrous) and nitromethane (often referred to as "nitro").  You said nitro -- should have said nitrous.  No big deal -- we know Ali's bike would have been pretty unhappy if he had tipped the can and used nitro.

Milt,,,  you can save a few keystroke's and substitute   N2O, Juice or Spray  etc.. in place of Nitrous or Nitrous Oxide..
