    Track Rental Interest?

    Every year for the past few years, I have participated in the more 'local' group of T-Birds, Cougars and Lincolns known as the Mid-Atlantic MN12 (a TCCoA chapter) and their annual Summer Blast event. This year we are trying to gauge interest on a private track rental. It would be for 4 hours...

    Wipe Out!

    This year while on the Hot Rod Power Tour, I took the opportunity to partake in a bit different kind of racing... a road course at Hallet Motor Racing Circuit in Jennings, OK. It was a rocky start as when I arrived at the gate the attendant noted some type of 'fluid' sprayed all across...

    Northern Super Heavy Shootout

    The Northern Super Heavy Shootout was rescheduled from earlier in the spring to May 19th at Cecil County Dragway. I had hoped to run the Blue Flame at the event but it turned out I had to take the 'back-up' - the Opal Opalescent 1996 Mark VIII. :) The class I participated in was the...

    Cecil County MD

    I took the Blue Flame out to the track today - the third time on the new setup and perhaps the last outing of the year with tracks closing for the winter soon. This time was Cecil County Dragway near Rising Sun, MD. Long story short, the best run was the first run of seven. Lots of breakage...

    New best ET at SSHS 11

    The Super Southern Heavyweight Shootout, 2011 edition in Atlanta, GA. :) At first the car seemed consistent with 12.62 to 12.80, then a freak run at 12.550 @ 106.73. Before eliminations started, throwing out the worst and the best of the time trials resulted in a tight group of 12.7s. So I...

    Lincoln FTW

    I was surfing car porn on YouTube and happened to run across this classic from last fall at the SuperCoupe Shootout in Xenia, OH... :drunk: For the record, that was the finals of the bracket series for the day and the Blue Flame victoriously...
