Day 1 Friday,
Pulled into San Antonio Raceway at 6:00pm. This night was a $500.00 to win bracket race. 1st round, I race a buddy of mine that I race every week at HRP(not cool to drive 3 hours and race someone you race every week) I cut a .032 light to his .045. I run a 6.68 with a 7 on a 6.69 dial to his winning 6.19 on a 6.17. Dang brakeouts. I did drive the topend very well.

2nd round(buy back) I cut a .022 light to his .065 and run a dead on 6.68 with a 2 to his 7.18 on a 7.16 dial.

3rd round I cut a .035 light to his red light -.006 and run a 6.66 with a 9 on a 6.67 dial.

4th round(semis) I cut a very slow .122 light to his .085. I run a 6.65 with a 7 on a 6.66 dial to his 7.07 on a 7.05 dial.

Day 2 Saturday
I was running 2 tech cards. I made it to the quarters(round 5) on both cards. In round 5, I went -.003 red and ran a dead on 6.68 with a 7 to the other guys, .089 light a a 2 over 6.92 on a 6.90 dial. On the other tech card I went .012 on the tree to his .033. I ran a 6.66 with a 9 on a 6.67 dial to his 7.25 on a 7.23 dial. I should have touched the brakes at the strip.

Day 3 Sunday
Ran ran 4 tech cards this day. I ran 2 in Top Et and 2 in N/E
In the Top Et class I made it to round 3 on both tech cards. In round 3 I got beat by dragesters on both tech cards. I broke out on the 1st one with a 6.65 with a 9 on a 6.66 dial and the dragester run a 4.97 on a 4.95 dial. On the 2nd tech card I got beat at the tree. I cut a .033 light to the other guys .012. He ran a 4.75 on a 4.74 dial to my 6.67 on a 6.66 dial.

In the Footbrake class, I went out in the 4th round on 1 tech card. I cut a .045 light to his .055 light but I broke out with a 6.66 with a 9 on a 6.70 dial.

Now for the good news, I went on to win the race on the other tech card in 8 rounds. I cut a .022 light to his .076 light. I ran a 6.70 with a 2 on a 6.69 dial. He ran a 6.17 on a 6.15 dial. What a great win! :chug:

Thanks everyone. It was a very fun weekend.

We put alot of passes on my car every season. I change the oil/filter every 2 weekend reguardless of how many passes on the car. I also change the tranny fluid every 30 passes. I just ordered another set of slicks, they should be here on Friday. This new set will be the 3rd set this season. :devil:
