The all Ford day at Sacramento raceway was a blast.It was great to meet up with Glen and SteveW.They are both great guys,and have a ton of helpful tips.My wife loved the races too.We were there for about 7hours.They had a small car show.And plenty of cars racing too.Lot's of big scoops too.Congrads to Glen for making it into the money run.He missed it by 'this' much.
Kevin I got to see your new record run.Your car is not only good looking but it runs real hard too.After watching your run a few times,you need TRACTION bad.
On your best run at about half track you got alittle side ways.
Glens car look "BAD"with his new scoop.And Glen knows how to shift like non other I've seen before.His car luanches great,and is real smooth al the way down the track.He's a real good driver too.Sorry you didn't get that last run.

I took lots of pictures of any of them caome out.I'll get them posted.What a great day.
Thats an event you all have to see.it's the first all Ford event I've seen.

Awe man!! I didn't know it was still on?!?! It was raining like mad here this morning. We just ended up home hunting. We found a promising home though.

That sucks big time for me!! I wish I would have known. We would have just went out there for fun and watched since I didn't get the trailer. Oh well, we're hoping to be able to run on Memorial Day!!

Congrats to Glen for running into the Semifinals!!

Damn, sounds like I missed a great day . After Saturday night not looking promising I told my older bro that I would install ceiling fans in his new house yesterday. If you continue down Excelsior you will get to his house, literally like 3 minutes down the street .

Is Infinion having Memorial Day drags?

I got tired of people where I live (Sacramento) asking me "did you know its now called infinion?" or something like that every time I called it Sears Point so I just call it by its "new" name. Same goes with Candlestick, etc.

Every time I made it over to your car you were gone.
I did watch you run a few times.
With good tires you might see 11's all the time.
You can sure tell when you hit the 100hp shot.Your car gets alittle sideways.
