Default bitter sweet trip to the track

Well, I went to Piedmont Dragway last night. I got 5 gallons of 100 proof gas and rolled straight in line right off of the highway. My first run was my best. 1.77 60' time 8.183 E/T @ 86.28. I was pumped up about that. They were running a lot of big boys up there. Those damn cars blow engines like I blow my nose when I have a cold. That being said, the track was bad about half of the night. My next run I was lined up with a early 90's Acura with a fart can. Being so pumped up about my last run and bad track conditions made for a really embarassing next run. I launched hard and proceeded to destroy the tires. I pedaled it a few times and still spun over half way down the track, by then it was too late. I got beat by a damn, weak ***, fart can having, SLOW ricer! He ran a 10.0 and I ran a 10.4 The worst part about it is that another Z lined up with him the next time and did almost the same thing I did. But, the Z edged him out at the end by .1 seconds. So now there is a ricer with a turd brown Acura going around here thinking that he can smoke a LS-1 car. DAMMIT!!!! Oh well, at least my first run was good.
Sorry about tarnishing the LS-1 name
