Curious what caused the blow torch header deal tonight?
I noticed motor sounded different as soon as you stoped backing up from burnout. Then saw the header pyro show get bigger and bigger!

Well after getting the blower freshened up seems we couldn't keep enough fuel to it, we popped a burst panel broke a belt and sheered all of the blower hold down bolts and lifted the blower in the last qualifier right at the 1/8 mile coasted to a 7.45 at 103. Thrashed it all back together and after the burn out for 1st qualifier realized it bent a valve and was pushing Alcohol straight through the head into the hot exhaust " flame thrower on the left side", we had to abort the run. Thanks to my crew and track personal for shutting me down, if I would of made a pass things could of been bad at WOT with that much fuel going through the hot exhaust.

Damn I hate to hear that Chris. I was hoping you would get that 6 tonite. At least it didnt drop it.
Thanks Didn't get my 6 second pass but did manage to win the championship. Next year a bigger fuel pump is in order.

You might not want to hear this, but.....

You could really drop your aero drag with a chop top or custom cap on the box.

When you freshened the blower...you didn't do anything else??. I only ask because it sounded a lot different. Pissed different.

Congrats on the championship!.

Congrats Chris!

Now can you please keep your used truck parts off the track? I ran over your expired blower belt yesterday. Definitely a weird feeling doing 180 mph and seeing something on the track. :p ;)

Good luck on the continued hunt for a 6.
