It was a great weekend and great event.

Makes me want to get into something a little better, but all in time. Black Betty did better than I expected and with some upgrades it should stay together, for a bit haha.

Big thanks to John and Kyle for getting the pit team together to get my rear axle working again and to my spotter Josh for going and getting the extra shaft we needed. Very happy Gary had one to keep us in the comp. Thank you to all that helped, including the guy that drove me to get parts to get the steering to work again (I forgot your name)

I had such a great time I'm already looking forward to winning next year.....haha

The last month has been super busy putting the rig together for this and I'm glad I did it. The people who put this event together did a great job. I really enjoyed the fact that we were all there to have fun and it made it easy to do so with the group that was there. I never felt like I was the new guy. Thanks again

that's because I was the new guy!

I agree though. great event and great people. will definitely try to come back next year and kick some butt

found out it was just air in the fuel lines. got it purged and it fired right up (wish I could've done that during that last event). gonna switch to a different style fuel rail so that can't happen again and should be good to go. I'm ready to go wheelin!!!

I had a good time, even though I didn't get to race. Next year I'd better have my poop in a group and be ready. Always good to see everyone. Good job to everyone involved. Special thanks to Shawn for getting sponsors together!

Sounds like he busted his ass not only getting his rig ready, but getting many sponsors together.

And another huge thanks to the folks at the park. Great people willing to do whatever it takes to help others and it shows that they have a true love for our sport!!

as of now, my system is similar to the early 2000 vettes. the regulator is before the fuel rails. we are going to change the system so the regulator is after the fuel rails so the pump has constant fuel pressure to the rails and won't have to worry about air bubbles being an issue.

that's the best I can explain it. hope that makes sense

Sorry about the wait, just little time and loads of video. Anyway it is only fair to start with the team who earned it from start to finish, well done Trevor and Matt, you'd the man!
