This is VMP's last TNT date of the year. I plan on going as long as they're open. Their site says it must be 50 degrees or warmer to run and the forecast for Sat. is a high of 45-46 so I guess I'll just call them Sat. morning to check. If anyone wants to go let me know.

I just checked their site and it says for the 4.90 & 5.90 index racing......

*VMP Will Run This Final Race As Long As It Doesn't Rain*

If they run that I hope the include the TNT too.

It says on their site their going to run as long as there's no rain. I think the main reason is because they're having the final races for the 1/8 mile 4.90 & 5.90 classes. I'll call in the morning to double check though but I plan on going.

Awesome hook and 60's. Thats what you've been needing all along.

I know you like those launches, LOL, I do!! ;) Better hook, less MPH, much better ET. You've done great with it this year.

Looking forward to seeing whats coming next year!! :D

I now have a routine I go through with monitoring the bottle pressure, the burnout, arming the nitrous, purging the nitrous, pre stage, wait a few seconds then stage. I think it shows in my reaction and 60' times.

Grasshopper listens and learns well Steve..................:p

Yeah you do. See how well it works. ;)

Congrats on a lot of hard work and a great year! Just to think the first time I saw you this spring all you wanted was an 11 second timeslip. You've knocked a second off your best ET from last year and almost ran a 10. I call that a great year.

Glad to see it happen for you. Practice, Practice, Practice. You have the proceedure now :D
