I rode down there with some friends saturday..."first time at a 1/4 track other than bristol...My brother in law broke his tranny 1st pass...his 1/8th mile e/t was .4 faster than his best evar at bristol...even though he never got the car in 4th gear he drifted through the traps .1 faster than his best at bristol.....

they really prep that track well....saw the wildest thing ever a 7 second rail with a cummins on it and a 9 second cummins4x4 truck... they were awseome...

Well Bristol in the summer and BG in the fall are two different animals thats for sure BG is 500' above seal level and Bristol is 1700' plus the uphill grade. Prep is hit or miss this time of the year but they usually prep the last day pretty well, Bristol is 2 hours from me and BG is 3.5 but I still go to bowling green more often.

I did and had a great time except for having to wait for all the motocycles to run. The car ran great and we had a safe trip both ways what else can you ask for!!

I ran at Bristol in July and ran .60 faster at Bowling Saturday pick up 6 MPH as well.

I didnt get there until 4:30 central time, but was able to hotlap 4 passes in the last 30 minutes before they closed. I was pretty happy with a 13.4 @ 109 stock considering the temp and tires i was running

The track was hooking pretty good until they started trying to run lanes 2&3 and then 4&5 alternating. That missed everything up. Still I managed a 1.459 60 foot!

I ran at BG on the 17th. I was in the red C5 that ran 10.00-10.02. The track prep was pretty good but the atmospheric conditions were not as good as I would have liked. KP lives across town from me and is a friend. He was not there this past weekend but was there the week before.

That Black TA sounded good going down the track that is for sure! I knew it could run! I figured somebody may have confused his car for KP since they are both black and have Bogarts on them!

That red vette was putting it down and movin on out it looked like it was on some kind of cable, last yellow light front end lift just a little and bye bye past 135 MPH.

People just looking around at each other when the 10.001 came on at the end of the track! Not bad for all engine!

Thanks for the compliments. I had hoped to get into the 9s N/A but I will have to wait a couple of weeks to do that. The cool thing is that I drive it on the street on a regualr basis, as it runs on 93 octane.

From what I understand the orange TA was all engine, I think a 408 saw it run 11.11 at 125 not bad for all engine 6spd with wide tires on the front and 16" ET Streets on the back.

Yes, that orange WS6 was with us. His name is mark and he lives in the monterey area. He drove his car from there on ET Streets. I believe that the times that you listed are correct.

What did you think about the blue ram air Formula running 10.85 N/A at 123.22 MPH with only 346 cubic inches under the hood?

Well, my answer is a little biased since he (Jeff) is running my old engine that I ran in my C5 before I switched over to the 427. I think that the car runs great, especially since the engine combination is not that radical.

DBN you need to sell him your new engine and he would be runnin 9.80's N/A the way that car leaves out that would be cool!

it was a great day for racing,that's for sure. track was hooking awesome for me.nice meeting up with dennis (dbn) and jeff,both their cars are dialed in. i was more than happy with an 11.11 since i have no susppension mods at all other than a set of qa1s on the front and the sway bar removed with a set of relocation brackets in the rear since i'm lowered. even got great mileage on the way up also.filled back up after racing and got right at 16 mpg. not bad for a 3,800 lb land barge haha ! i plan on spraying it on the top end next time .

So how much did the Trailblazer weigh after you took out all of the seats? That thing looked good leaving the line!

The scales said 4350, but I think they were off. The last time I was there WITH the seats, it weighed 4700. lol I know the rear and passenger seat don't weigh 350 lbs.. ;)
