Somehow I managed to keep my cool (I thought damn racing and points all week to add extra pressure) and won the 1st round to lock up my 2nd track championship in footbrake over a tough field of guys (including the guy who finished #2 to me last year; he finished 3rd). I lost second round by going -.003 red to a guy who won the entire race, as well as the king of the track Wally, as he also red-lighted (but I left first). So I have the NHRA Division 2 E.T. Finals at South Georgia Motorsports Park Oct 13th through 15th. :) Come say hi if you happen to be there

Hope everyone had a good weekend of racing!

Thanks for all the comments.

Coach: best of luck to you this weekend! let us know how it goes!

Frank: I met Manny Sousa many years ago at an E.T. Finals, and some things never change (like the color of his fairmont) :lol: I know he is a good racer, and he'll be a tough one this year. I know he did well in the stocker he ran last year, but apparently didn't forget how to bracket race either as he took home the street track championship from Bradenton Motorsports Park in south FL.

:emb: Thanks for the comment, but believe me if you came to visit G-ville, a few people could easily take my place every week! The good thing about that is it makes you be on your game!

And about the :drive: it's easy, you just hold the wheel straight... :lol:

Me being on my game is not red lighting :jest: . I guess Orlando is about the same for bracket racing theres about 10 guys in sportsman that just kill you on the tree, thats why I only run brackets in Lakeland better chance.

Derek I'm sure you will do well. The reason that I know Manny is that when he was driving a stocker in Louisiana he raced at my home track. I hung out with the guys that he was working for. I paid attention when he raced and talked to him a little. I did pickup on a few things that made him good. But he is hard on brakes lol. Frank95z

Frank,

That's an understatement! :lol: I remember the picture in National Dragster last year when he was smoking the tires across the finish line versus David Rampy at the No Problem race. Manny's been racing long enough to know when to get there and when to dump @ the stripe!

Congrats Derek, you going to get another jacket this year?

Bri,
Yep, shame I don't live in a place I can wear them more often! :bang: A SFI jacket isn't that bad for 50 degree temps, so most of the good jackets usually stay home in the closet.
