    Post Results- my point of view

    Well, 4 Lightnings showed, three that pre-registered and one that didn't. That means six that signed up didn't show. The fastest Lightning(black 99 driven by Justin) turned a 13.26 I think. I only managed a 13.72. Of course it was really hot and humid. 93* and 93* humidity.
    I'm estimating there were about 20 454ss, 1 R/T and 1 syclone. The only one that beat Justin was a 454ss that was running M/T drag slicks(not street legal according to the rules)it was a nice truck! It was fun and I hope they invite us back next year.
    I'll post some pics as soon as I can.

    The fastest SS there was fully street legal, even passes emissions, naturally aspirated. It ran a 12.13 I believe, that was after the track had opened to the public. I wan't able to make it cause my computer for my FI didn't show up. But there's always next year.

    easterisland,

    Although it was hot and humid, we still had a blast there! A hand full of Lightnings are better than none, and to be running faster than most 454SS's was fun! If we can get together some other time to make some runs and have fun, let me know.

    Thanks to the lightnings that showed up, real neat guy's. Wish you all would have stayed around for the cookout and made the tours friday, there is always next year. The one Dodge that showed from the Chi-Town area is bringing 10 RT's next year. Next year we hope to be able to rent the track for the full day if we can get a big turnout. Again, thanks and looking forward to meeting more of you.

    I was talking of the black 502ss that beat the Lightning. It had M/T drag tires which are illegal for street use. M/T et streets are DOT approved. It was a very nice truck. I know someone spent a lot of time fixing it up. It was about 1.5 seconds quicker than its closest 454ss brother.

    If the tires were a problem I would have installed my M&H dot tires, sorry I rubbed someone the wrong way, I had them with me, I have gone faster with them. I was breaking in those tires (slicks)and the run that I ran the Lighting they were still not fuzzed, It was after everone left that I finally broke them in. The run I ran the lightning I only turned a 1.89 60 ft time, later I was turning 1.70's. I must explain why I have both types of tires. At my track, Ennis Tx. on test and tune night if you run dot tires you must run the street tire lane for test and tune, not the clean lane for slicks. This was done because on test and tune nights we would always get some idiot with a street tire hottie shake 50k miles of dirt, grime, gravel all over the starting line, saying nothing of the oil and water leaks, you all have seen it, this would make conditions for anyone with serious HP impossible, hence I have both available and since dot tires were not a requirement I wanted to try them out, and brake them in. Next year I will keep them off my trucks if anyone thinks it is a advantage.

    When foxspy said it was street legal I have to say that it wasn't because of the drag tires. That 454/502 was almost 1 sec faster than the L anyway so it wouldn't have mattered. It was all fun. I' just glad that the 454 club invited us to participate. They even invited us to the party afterwards, but we had to get home. Thanks to everyone who made the event happen.
