Jake went to a divorce party (not His) last night so I went to the Valley to help a couple of outlaw 7.50 cars. I figured while I was there I'd spent the extra $6 and run trophy in my 249,730 mile cavalier. Any who, first T&T I had a .020 red RT and ran 12.12, second test I had .0100 green RT and ran 12.12. One of the pro racers came over and asked if I wanted to use his number and run pro because he broke on the first time run. I said sure. I got back in line and had a .0101 RT and ran 12.07.

First round trophy I told myself back off a little :- .179 RT [-( [-( 12.08 on a 12.10. the other guy had a .014 RT. 1st round trophy after kicking myself in the A$$ .092 RT to a .007 and ran a 12.05 on a 12.07. ](*,) Bought back and had a .090 Rt to his .174 I was looking in the mirror and watching him come on (he dialed 8.77 I knew I broke out last time so I stabbed the brakes and....... MOV .0001 lost [-( [-( So I'm never going to bug Jake about his lights or playing the big end!!

It was a blast. I never said it was easy. It's easy to look at the time sheet and say WTH!? I out thought my myself. Live and learn.

Steve, I did some "foot braking" but not much and it's not to easy to get constant lights.. But then again I see some get them just about most of the time and some of the better racers that foot brake also run super here and do quiet well and one guy particular has one both the footbrake class and super on the same day!!! Now that's a good weekend!!!!!!!!!And a real nice pay check ;-)
