SC shootout carnage

Sorry I don't have pix, but there were several "breakages" at the SC shootout today at the track. A blown HG (347 stroker turbo), some halfshaft carnage, output shaft, tailshaft (Dave's wife's XR7), and prolly some other things too...I got there late. So check out SCCoA in a day or two for some pic/vids. Some cools SC's and some big carnage.

A man may smile and bid you hail
Yet wish you to the devil;
But when a good dog wags his tail,
You know he's on the level.

Who blew their motor? And there was 2 blown tranny's.. Connie Dalke's Cougar and Marc's Super Coupe. But Marc got a loaner tranny to get him to where ever he's headed to get it fixed. Pulled 2 tranny's and put one back in a car in about 4 hours IIRC.. Not bad in the pits at Thunder Valley. Probably doesn't top the engine swat Cat Jam 2004 (right?) though, huh?

there was a red 94-95 supercoupe that was making a loud knocking and squeaking noise and was put on a trailer that is the one I am refering to engine damage.

That was Chris, who is from Utah with his 91 AR Super Coupe. Very nice car.. both Chris and his wife are OK though. And I don't remember the knocking Super Coupe, but that might have all happened while I was helping with the trans swap.

David Rowe is from the Denver area - he made it home with no problems, just a long drive due to crappy weather.
