I did this for a few years until the Chrons disease got the better of me.







This got published in RPM magazine a few years ago.



I hope to be able to start doing this again someday, was fun being right next to the track.
Was right by the wall with Pro Mods, Outlaws, Alcohol funny cars and one time 2 Jet cars.

Sad to say that all the cars and bikes that I ran down the tack I have no pictures of them.

Thank you.
I have close to 300 GB worth of pictures just from the drag strip.

The truck was good for wheelies so when he launched and did not pull the front end up I just about lower the camera.
Then the truck went bang and it got really hot.
I think I got 6 total from that little nos backfire.

I will try to find them. Since I was new at this I didn't think about running the right lane where my brother was closest too... I stayed in the left lane all night. The highlight was racing a Colorade Ss modded with the 5.3 and smoking him in 2 different ways...


Not bad for a 7000 lb truck eh?

That's not bad.
My 92 Z/28 would run in the 8 something in the 1/8 mile, my best run the the 1/4 was
60 '1.937 13.851 98.16 mph
All stock TPI with 80,000 miles on the car.

I do just need to find the time to fix the vibration that the B4C has.
All the guys in the club keep bugging me about it.
