I wasnt there but I got the call from one of the crew & told me he had won. The car its a 7.10s consistent with a 540 conventional headed on one nitrous kit.

Thanks you guys!! the track was very bad and as the sun went away it got like ice after the 330 ft. I changed the 4-link around before the race and the car is 60 ft. is 1.00... so I think the change is for the better the track just diddnt hold any thing more so in the right lane but at byron we will pull some numbers if the weather is their with this little motor.

That car is also a candidate for the absolute best appearing car at the track. Up close it's really gorgeous.

Scott- Who did you run in the final? I left because it was cold. It was obvious after the first round that the track went away for the big horses. I was surprised no one tagged the wall.

Here's my candidate for 2nd best appearing, next to Scott. His first time out to with the Midwest Gassers. Hope he comes back.

It wasn't us or Recchia in the final... The clocks got screwed up in our 1st run. We went [email protected] to the 1/8th, then randomly the clock showed up 4.811.. They found a reflector missing out of the cone, so we didn't qualify..
And Recchia opted not to run anymore in the night..

Good job though Scott, car looks great and seemed to run great too.

well that sucks that happened to you guys i seen them messing with the reflecters but did not no what happened.all you guys have nice cars and fast I will be their on the fast part soon,I built a good car and chassis just need some more testing and tweeking ,not many hits on the car and when I built it I sat out for three years saving money to build it.Lost alot of seat time getting it back though,never been down the track at the grove until yesterday so was a little nervious about many things and the right lane was bad and getting worse after each run, but any way I had fun and will like running with the wise guys!! I need a good crew member at the line though that is my next thing i have to find. every one that I know races when I do that can do a good job. so any canidates out their???

You raced Tom Zbonczak(Spelling)...
Thank's for the compliments, your car fits in well with the group I think... It take time to make em go fast, we had ours stuck in the 7.Oh's for awhile.. Last year was really our first year going solid into the 6's.. Our's should go 50's in really good air, maybe quicker.. but it should be in the 60's on average..
You just gotta watch out for Recchia when he gets the new blower straightened out...And Blaisdell.

Doug- Your car has always been a crowd favorite, and I think you're knockin' right on the door. You still get the award for burnout king every year. You're right, I can't wait till the wild Vette, Orsolini, and the rest get out there. There's a lot of 6 second horses in the Wise Guy Stable. Zbonzak ain't exactly standin' still. I'm sure Pete has something up his sleeve. And you gotta love Firkus.

There's one my buddy just put on Facebook.
Redeuce, this is Steve..Doug's son. My father and I have a few new things up our sleeve for the '57 this year...Same old combination, just doing a bit of "refining"... Thank's for the compliments, I will pass them onto my dad tomorrow at work.

I tried to post a full pic and it wants me to go to a url instead of my pics on my hard drive. or am I doing something wrong? yea i raced firkus at byron last year he has a faster car than me but I have fun going up along side him he is a nice person and his crew .also we are not that far apart on e.t. so if he's caught sleeping I will have a chance at the win LoL!!! I also have more I can give this motor the tune up is mild and the same tune up Jlo put in it when we broke the motor in,so when the track gets better or the weather the tune up will change ans hopefully a good e.t.
