Well... it was an extremely windy and c-o-l-d day that eventually ended with a rain out but in the end, as always, we had a blast!! Our racers included Eddie(blue 67 Stang), George in the bumblebalt, Kerry in the Kenny Brown Stang(wonderful to put a face to a name!!), Josh and Bill on the bikes and a surprise visit from Jack and Steph in the Magnum(so good to finally meet you both!!!!)! Those just along for the ride and a bit of entertainment were myself, Shawn, Mike and Skip. We enjoyed an adventure in the Columbia Food Lion, a few hours at the track, lunch at Andy's and finished the day with a martini or two with our newest member, Mitch over at the New York Pizza Pub!

Here are a few shots at the track:

All I have to say is......"Hey lady, I pee'd in your pool.....yay"
Had a total blast today, got the BumbleBalt to run a 9.59@74.96mph. Not too shabby for a little 4banger. The nitrous took almost a full second off of the time in the 8th.

Nice pictures. I had a good time, but darn it was cold. I was mad I could not get under a 9, but I do know traction was a problem. At leat it was for me. :mad: If we do it again maybe it will be warmer.

OHH and I got the blue lights on my way home is another story. :D

Traction was definately an issue. Eddie's time was a 6.61 where it's normally down in the 6.0s... he was squirley all the way down the track and said even if they didn't call it because of rain he was done!

We need a warm, sunny day so we can do it again! :cheers: I think MsBlur will have to come along as well!

Now about these blue lights you spoke of... :eek:

I was fallowing a car that was going form 50-55-60 back and forth. I kept it in 5th and went around the car. Then I slow back down to 60ish and then I see blue lights. :eek: I was think its not me. Well I was wrong. The state cop asked me if I knew how fast I past that car. I said I have no idea. Then He come back with a warning ticket and telling me I have a clean driving record and keep it that way. I think he let me go because he knew who I was. I done some work for him over the summer. Then after he was letting me be on my he was :D and said(I know this is a fast car, but just slow down).
