    Default Snowbird Nationals

    Snowbird Nationals was this weekend and my Pro Et bike was on kill. On Sunday time run Was a 5.877 So I dialed a 5.88 1st round 5.887, 2nd round 5.883, 3rd round 5.884, 4th and final round of 5.882 and lost.
    We had two Pro bike races and I made it to the final round in each race. And then I choked and red lighted both races.
    I got a nice payday though even though I didnít win.

    "Lights" means reaction time between when the light flashes green to go and when the bike actually starts moving forward. Bad red light means he took off before the light flashed green.

    I used to race super gas in a 71 Duster ex pro stocker,Hemi,crashbox,3 link D60 5.13s throttle stopped from 9.40s to 9.90 Helluva ride.Racing at a regional at woodburn there were a lot of heavy hitters and out of a 40 car field I was the only stick shift. Every run for me was double 0s rt and 9.905-9 Two rounds later I'm racing a local guy I've been against many times. Him BBC 69 Firebird. Here's the package, woodburns timers go 4 places, my rt .0001 et 9.9001 his rt .0000 et 9.9001. One ten thousands of a second. We couldn't tell at the end but found out at the slip shack.DAMN. I thought what does it take to beat these guys? Super gas is really tough.

    Got another nice pay day at the KOG race in Orlando last weekend. My Pro Et bike is racking in some $$$ almost $2000 in two events.
