Congrats Morgan Oakley and Lem Evans

Post  c.evans on September 5th 2010, 12:47 am

Guys as many of you know, Phillip bought David Cole's American Racecars dragster for his daughter Morgan Oakley. Lem and Phillip built an SCJ headed "fun" engine and Phillip got the car dialed in. Tonight at Windy Hollow they had a big race and Morgan did a fine job of driving and Lem did a fine job of tuning. She went into the fours tonight and ran a best of 4.96. I don't think it was intended to be this quick, the original plan was for her to run a little slower and gain experience behind the wheel of a dragster. IMO she's already exceeded expectations with her achievements, because yesterday (Friday) was her first time in the drivers seat. Way to go Mo Exclamation
