  • Live from San Antonio (SHRA)

    Tonight was Test and Tune, while tomorrow is two qualifying and eliminations.

    There are aboit a dozen NSS cars here so far, with a couple more coming n the morning.

    The Houston Contingency (Damon, Doug Watkins, GT Dave and myself convoyed; as did about Five of the Tyler Contingency. Randy Stansbury from the Coonass State also is here.

    I made two hits. The first the car wouldn't go over 5500RPM so I nursed it back to my pit, where I found the distributor hold down had loosen and timing was at 0 total. My second pass was after about 200 Mustangs, Vettes, Vipers, GTR, and the like on ßtreet tires greased up the track. I did a 7.01 1/8 (tomorrow is and 1/8 mile event) and 10.9999 1/4 skating all over the lane. No street tire cars tomorrow and track should be prepped.

    I either have a loose battery or starter wire or my starter is crapping out. I'll know in morning when I put the car on stands and dive under it.
