Yep, it was awesome!
Lots of fast SC's and V8's there.
Dyno numbers were impressive for some. I think the most fun was watching Chris Lazzo go 9.96 with that 331 Procharged car and IRS. It went a couple 10.0's as well.
Kevin Leitem had a couple good runs as usual with him but lost a couple belts too.
Chris Keegan's car with the auto and 550+ RWHP ran a 10.9 over the weekend as well.
Pro Street was sweet as Blown38 (Vining) marched through along with (Niebert) to meet heads up in the finals. It was a battle all day for ET bragging rites there. Chris ended up taking the Class and the ET battle at 11.09.
The turbo cars ruled on the dyno with one making nearly 700 WHP but didn't do well on the track.
RobertP brought out his newly built Vortech car and made nearly 500RWHP. He still has some tuning, part issues but the car did manage a 11.5 @ 122 MPH I believe.
With DA's in the 500 range the only thing not good was the headwind everyone was dealing with. But still excellent times and some new bests by all.
Dave and Connie as always did an excellent job setting up the event as did Brian Oatway and wife on the meal and chili dinner in the evening.
Lots of great and quick cars there.
Congrats to Chris (Blown38), JP (Driller) and Chad (Chadder1313) from the MAMN12 for winning their perspective classes. A big congrats also to Keith (Nickelman60) for winning the "M90" Dyno Award (483 WHP).
A special congrats to Jennifer for her first ever 100 MPH pass in her SVO TBird, and best ET 13.47 @ 101.7. Great job young lady.
A great time had by all. Look forward to it again next year. Now, we need to have more V8 participation.
