I won the Street Tire class at Dragway 42 in West Salem OH on a Thursday night. Got a total of 3 time trials, and six rounds of eliminations. The last three rounds were within a thirty minute time frame, so despite air temps dropping rapidly, my car was terribly heat soaked. Only eked out a 12.9287 ET on the final run, but cut an all time personal best R/T of .0245 to win. Transmission has been acting up and it was slurring the 2-3 shift badly, holding down my best ET for the night to 12.6377 @ 109.04 mph. (Typically runs low 12.40s) Once I got into the eliminations I coasted a couple finishes to keep from breaking out and had to be careful with my dial ins. Overall, the best I ever drove, if not the best the car performed. I think the chances of a repeat are slim to none, so I’m basking in self-satisfaction for the weekend. Have a great holiday weekend everybody!!
