Sacramento Raceway this weekend.

First of I want to thank everybody that came by and said whats up, and for all the kind words of encouragement. This event was OFF THE HOOK, it was like a baby NHRA National event at Sears Point. The crowd was awesome, I felt like John Force with all the people coming by and looking at the car and talking to them. Met a lot of nice people this weekend.

As for the performance of the car, it was stellar, the track was phenomenal it was rare a car didn't get down. The track took everything we threw at it and we still had a bunch more to throw.

I have to thank Steven Bunker for helping me make the connections with some of the most knowledgable people in the business. Rod Burbage, Bob Jr., Lonnie Houde. Every person in Pro Mod, awesome bunch of guys and even tho my baby promod wasn't as fast, people loved seeing it run with you guys.

As for the car, it ran personal bests EVERY SINGLE PASS at all incrimentals. Final pass of the weekend it was on a run and even tho everybody always says "oh it had problems, and oh it was way soft, blah blah blah" My car got on the rev limiter and I shut down early from a full 1/4 mile pass and it still ran faster than ever!!! and like Leroy says 8's are a thing of a past. And we're not talkin some 7.9999999999 crap either, it's a runner!

If anybody was there and has any video of my car pleeasse pretty please post it up somewhere, or PM me and email it to me. I was super short handed this weekend and struggled to even get one guy to help crew, thank god I have some awesome friends!. So had no video of any passes except for my super wheel stander yesterday that Gary Castro taped for me.

That S&S Automotive small block hauls the mail, can't wait til next time out, just hope bako hooks as hard as sac did this weekend.

and even tho they don't come here I have to give huge props to my entire crew, those who made it and those who couldn't make it, without them I couldn't do what I do.

Ya got people talking. Congratulations is in order to the only blown alcohol car that I know which still starts by a key in the stock ignition.

And Sacramento is a kick ass track, always has been and always will be!

yeah the paint sponsor deal is still on Ron, just make sure it comes out flawless black with white ralley stripes.

As for Bowman, he's in a class of his own... I don't go out testing to unseat, just make progress to do better against the people in my class.

Just went back over the data throttle was closed at 7.48 seconds
