I cant be happier with the way the year has gone , new car / new class and first time racing in a class . i have gone down the track many times over the years but never for points or class raced

im cutting good lights average around .020 on a .400 pro tree been .010 -.015 but id say .020 as an average and using a hipster trans brake , i never expected to put it all together this soon . Im 3rd in points and only 9 out from leader with 4 races remaining
car is a simple combo solid flat tappet cam noting crazy i go through traps 6600-6700 range But it just plain WORKS!


im only 30 years old but i remember my father bringing me to New england dragway when i was 8 years old and was hooked on cars and thought about having my picture taken in victory lane one day (had visions of racing ) . So it was kind of cool to do that and share it with my father/brother/wife at the track

thanks for kind words guys

Unlike so many other younger people ... you get it.

A good reliable combination which is not totally maxed-out yet runs the number can bring a lot of enjoyment.
Especially because you work on it because you WANT to ... not because you HAVE to.

Congratulations for what you are doing.

thanks Randy i really appreciate that


i have had a mortgage since i was 23 , and racing is a hobby and having a car for 10.00 index /10.50 index its simple setup and maintenance is within reason
that doesnt effect my home life or cause any of those issues that some others "go for broke "


.060 over 460 , out of the box eddy heads , icon piston and a custom ground sft cam from you ..simple but works great.
i make a pass ,come back to pits run water pump and fan with charger and make sure the burgers dont burn on the grill lol


a lot of people cant believe i dont have a roller cam , and i tell them i have to slow up to run the index . So what gain would a roller cam be with heavier valve springs and wear n tear just to slow up
.another great thing i feel not be maxed out with some big roller and springs is valve lash . I check the lash every 2 races and all year they have not been out or needed and adjustment so i assume not be high rpm or big cam the valve train is happy

LESS is more in some cases
im learning everyday , listen to others and try to always improve

Awesome job on all. I meant to try to catch you at YBN but missed you. We had one in Ultra and two in pro dial.
Glad to see you’re having a good year.

Post  5pointslow Yesterday at 12:47 pm

last race is this sat
i have an 81 point lead on second place and have it locked up championship wise

I have had a blast this year winning races and being in the game , cutting good lights on the .400 pro tree i have been in the .015-.030 for lights  the most part as an average
As stated before the combo is simple but it plain works


Thanks to all on here that has helped me over the years with any tech or questions that you have answered .
I truly am grateful
