Yes it does SUCK!!!! It let loose coming out of turn 14 at CMP. I'll be out for a good while. I can't complain about the motor. I bet the crap out of it for 3 1/2 years and it had 42K on the clock.

It was a spectacular death. One of the CMP track officials said that was the biggest cloud of smoke he's seen in a long time. It sounds like a piston or rod broke, according to Lester.

The AI turnout was very dissappointing. Shugg, Pearson,Koehler, B. Smith, Beau(on Sunday) and Lester and a Firebird(soorry forgot his name) in AIX. We had 16 at this event last year. Beau can report on his day Sunday.


RESULTS
AI Sat.- Shugg, B, Smith
AIX- Lester

The guys that were left will have to post when they get back here.

The highlight of the weekend was watching Lester run the dirt track at Lancaster Speedway. A good friend of his built the car and Lester built the motor. It was a blast to watch.

Shugg and I would like to thank Craig for all his hospitality again this weekend.

Sorry about your bad weekend, John. Any more details on the motor? Did you have your camera running?
Any more race results??

Let me know what you plan to do with her. I'd be glad to drive down to help you tear her apart or whatever you need. DON'T hesitate to ask me for help!

I love fixing stuff and taking stuff apart. With no event at Summit in May, I'll have some extra free time.

John,

I'm really sorry to hear that buddy! Are you going to disassemble it to try and figure out what happened?? Damn I wish there was something I could do to help you out. Hey maybe we could steal one of Tony's Cobra's and take the motor out of it....He'd never miss it with four of them!

John, how about a 302 motor out of a 1996 Explorer? It's been to the third round of brackets at Carolina Dragway. On second thought, it has 196,000 miles on it, runs so good I want to keep it.

Sorry to hear about your bad luck. The car sounded great at our SCMC CMP event. ?????
