John,
I received an E-mail from you (Sept 29).
I talked to Crisafulli's but, they didn't have any event pictures of the car. I only have a couple complete car pics that are on my site. http://www.wiresandpliers.com/cris.html
Once I get something form them I will forward them on to you.

well as you kno most of those turbo cars are slower in the first half of the track than many nos cars then in the 1/4 hes gotta be runnin close if not in the sixes. but still robbins' also must be running mid to low 90s in the sixes :smt119

I still cant wait to see a nos smallblock car go in the sixes.

I was checking out outlawracing.com and it looks like Terry Robbins lowered it to a 4.49 which is crazy for any car to run on a 10.5W tire. They said Robbins ran between a 4.49 and a 4.52 every round.

We had a local boy from Austin, Tx. make a good showing at the race too. Billy Stocklin and his '70 Camaro qualified #9 in the field and lost to Robbins in the 3rd round. Not bad for the 3rd time out with a new motor/combo. Hopefully, he can make it a bit further next year.

That 4.49 is simply amazing!!!

Lynch has ran in the 6s already, with a slower 1/8th mile time then his 4.50.
