The weather reports for the day weren't the best & the UMC event shared the same day as NMRA finals & another event held at Jackson. Not nearly the turnout as expected but we still had a blast.
It was my first "True Street" competition and I made out pretty good winning the overall and also the fastest pass. Unfortunately, the UMC boards went down the Wednesday after & a lot of threads were unrecoverable. We lost some cool video & pics. I have some pics to share, but...

Q: If I don't have hosted webspace, how can I post images? Anyone?

Kilroy,

Edmond will need to put your e-mail address on the BB in order for you to post pictures on the SCMC BB. Just send an inquiry to firme@houston.rr.com and he will "enable" you to post pics.

Thanks Firme! Just a few shots of the True Street contestants - I'll post more in a bit.
The attached timeslip was the result of a callout from a good friend of mine, Scotty W. He was runner up in True Street with an averaged .183 slower ET than mine. Weeks before the race I'd agreed to spot him .5 - so as you can imagine, I was certainly gonna be handed my tail. This was my best run of the day and not one of the best for the NOS snortin' GT.

Chris' beastly NOS-fed 331cid '95 suffered hood latch failure while running through the traps but he was able to stop the car preventing further damage. The car is nearly 100% repaired today. Hood pins!:thumbsup: The weather was humid but we stayed dry & ran all day. Always fun to run your buds & make new friends at the track.

Josh, PM sent. Ever get the '99 Cobra on its feet again?

oh yes it is up and running great, looking to sell to pay off some other bills before I get out and move down there.
