Did 1/4 mile asphalt roundy round in the 60-70's as a helper on my Uncles late model.
He was fat, I was skinny, so I would crawl around and hold stuff or do adjustments if we were going to a different track.
Enlisted in 1980, and started dragracing ~1982 at Atmore Alabama in the worlds slowest Camaro.
307" with 273 open rear end. So slow it couldn't do a burnout on the street
Took a few years off when shipped to Asia, then came back & got married, had a kid, started a business.
Been all in since the late 1980's at the Grove & Osceola with a different Camaro & now an old P/S that was converted to A/PM, that I modified to T/S.
I admire the younger crowd that is racing also we all know it takes more than a few nickels to participate in this sport and to see the younger dudes racing says a lot because they also have young children and that alone is another big expense.
24 years old right now. Been racing off and on half of my life but been out of racing since 2012 from dirt late models. Bought this Nova 2 years ago as bare roller, put it together mostly myself and but definitely financed it myself lol. Only have a carport to work out of with a decent shop that the tools and equipment are in and a small utility room with the carport. Definitely not easy...

Don't see me going off to do anything else except get a Nova STREETCAR or a Harley/motorcycle but I'm too invested in this to get rid of it anytime soon. Probably going to be a drag racer for as long as I can financially stand to be
SO either your own T-shirt or one that you saw & it really caught your eye.
I want us to wear matching shirts next season, and I am not a fan of the pro style uniforms for a little guy like me.
It would be nice to look like an actual team. At least a little bit.
Trying to decide how...
Can't blame him. They have reduced payouts and increased expenses and running the whole operation at loss this season isn't wise for the business.
I don't get it, flat don't get it. We have multiple race cars. All of them have hi-buck flexplates and various starters. Three of them you hit the starter button and it's like starting a regular street car. But this one, this sob eats everything you throw at it and it's not timing either, 31...
For those running a two step rev limiter with a stick, how do you have it set up? I have seen a switch on the clutch pedal and one on the trans linkage so it only engages when clutch is in, and trans in first gear. I have also seen it wired for clutch switch engaged, then when you...
