Ok and guess if there are any fanatic types other there,
One could hit Ennis in the morning then make the 206 mile trek to red river to run under the lights in some 50 deg air.
as well as get a good view of this action:

Cool,
Talked with Joey yesterday, he mght come up out if he gets some bits finished on his his truck.

You need to check with Kenedale, they are starting the big bracket race event today. They aren't having street legal or any open test N tune tonight, fri or sat.
Sun is the last day of the brackets and it does say open for street wars then the outlaw match racin..
If I was guessing you might be able to run earlier than normal on Sun, but give em a call to verify.

Last night not many tuning but the place was thick with dragsters and trailers coming in for todays action.

Well a tad warm and humid but still a good day at the track.

Here's a few pics, all the camera gal managed to get in the vid dept was one short one of her knee cap and a longer one of her foot. :D

I guess Ennis was just teasing everyone by saying the last few weekends were the last for the season the scheduled another Test and tune for this saturday the air should be better this weekend but it was supposed to be good the last few weekends so i don't wanna get my hopes up. but i'll be out there if anyone else wants to go.

No it was feaking cold last night..
Haha I really really need DR's.
First on the new 305-50-20's did a mild burnout, launched from idle, hit rev limit in .005 seconds to a 2.78 60', let off as it was getting real squirrelly at about 45 mph.
Next run massive burnout, still only pulled a 2.157 spin 25'.
Got to measure while we waited for them to haul off the camaro that snapped it's axle right after my run.
I figured it out a little bit but never got it to really stop spinning so I didn't EVEN try the short belt.
Sill got some good 9.0x runs, beat a 5.7 tundra reg cab twice and then one them thar supercharged harley fords.
Best run was a 9.06 but even then my 60' was way out @ 2.07
Good times for me at kennedale but it could have been so much better if I could have got the tires to at least pretend to hook.

So much for the "new" in new tires, huh?:
Lucky for me 95% of that smeg is their track vs my tires.

haha ya there seems to be alittle rubber back there. I have noticed still that sunday i went when there were alot of fast fast cars and when i went on a wednesday once the track hooked better than ever..I guess thursday they just don't care because there street cars. I think we are pretty much equal on street tires and 20's. This weekend will be my last run on the 17's probally im gonna save up and buy some new 20's that are 19lbs I don't like running fast at the track and knowing that's the only place i'll run fast with my track wheels. Then i get to go back to traction issues though :help:
