Alright Folks, This week is my turn to try to deliver you a weekly update. With Steve starting a new job this week things have been a little hectic for him so I’ll have to fill in this time.
This week’s event brought us the Night Under Fire at Summit Motorsports Park, Which is known as the biggest and baddest show around when it comes to drag racing. Unfortunately for us the festivities have to start on Thursday by pulling in the rigs to a holding area and back up to the track Friday morning to pull them in the track. So already Steve and Amanda have two partial days invested in just moving equipment around.
Soon enough Saturday comes around and we are scheduled to hit the track at 9AM but due to the early morning rain that was pushed back until almost 11AM. Never having a dull moment around our crew in that two hour grace period I managed to produce an oil spill in my pit space that would make BP oil spill look minimal (ok so it wasn’t that bad but a pain to deal with none the less)
By time we got the oil spill under control and did a quickie oil change in my car it was time for Steve and I to make our way up for our one and only time trail. We both laid down awesome runs with Steve being .018 on the tree and running 10.36 and myself being .003 on the tree and running a 10.62. We were set and ready to roll.
Come about five o’clock the track shut everything down in order to do the first part of their show. As always it was great to watch having every car involved perform pretty much flawlessly. Shortly after that things came to a soggy stop. Yep the rain was back and would not let up enough for us to finish anything that day and by 11PM we were starting to pack up for the day and head out.
So the quick review of that story is with a total of almost three days involved in one single race, Steve and myself got to make one stellar pass each down the track! But as always the Bader family put on a great show.
This coming Saturday currently doesn’t show anything on the schedule as far as racing but Sunday is another point’s race at Dragway42 in the home stretch of point’s races for the year and the battle for first place gets tighter every week there!
