According to the Valley's website he runner up'd beating Andy Warren in the semis. They're good friends but it seems Andy is one of those guys Jake could never beat but he drilled Andy with a .010 light. Looks like there's a new sheriff in town. Good job Jake and Steve!

Well I have a minute I'll throw some numbers off the top off my head.

The top 6 cars all qualified within .008 of their indexes. We had 11.002 and qualified 3rd.

first round was against a beautiful 68/9 Hemi GTX. Jake had a little better light and ran 8 numbers off (weather went to sh!t) the other guy pedaled to keep from braking out and Jake went by.

L JACOB WEIGL 8169 11.00 .074 11.081 120.03 W
R BARRY DORN 8007 11.50 .126 11.569 114.10


Round 2 won on a redlight against Danny Towe in a 69 Fast back. Took the plate off and filled it full of fuel.

L JACOB WEIGL 8169 11.00 .057 11.047 120.47 W
R DANNY TOWE 8099 12.00 -.027 12.014 109.27


Round 3 was the best. He ran our teammate 3 time champion Andy Warren. Jake has not beaten him in 5 tries.

L JACOB WEIGL 8169 11.00 .010 11.045 120.68 W
R ANDY WARREN 1 10.50 .041 10.528 126.4

Now Jake has that monkey off his back.

The finals. The car was at 1/4 tank on the last run and all out. The only thing I could think of doing was change the air bleeds from a 31 to a 28. Jake said that will fatten it up won't it? I said yeah. He said what about the weather. I told him my gut said change them. Any ways same weather and fuel level. He ran a 68? Mustang. The guy cut a .018 to Jakes .072 Jake got by him at the end and pedaled and tapped the brake and still ran 10.96 O:) #-o I guess changing the bleeds do help a lot. ;-)

L JACOB WEIGL 8169 11.00 .072 10.969 121.49
R BRYAN PARKER 8668 12.00 .018 12.034 111.09 W



Then 7 hours back 3 hours of sleep and on a plane to GA at noon in route to Ft. Bragg NC. I love my Job!!

Got this off the NMCA site

In Eaton Posi Nostalgia Muscle Car, Bryan Parker, grabbed the win over Jacob Weigl after Weigl was forced to run under his index to offset a Parker Holeshot.
