Bremerton Raceway Sunday May 10th
 
So Sunday Tena, her mom and I went to Bremerton race way and enjoyed a long Day of racing. I Raced the 09 Focus, Tena Raced the 97 caravan and Her mom raced an 09 versa. We got to the track at 6:45 and there was already a long line. When we got in finally we discovered that there was hardly any decent pit stalls left so we had to park way out in the boonies. Half the time we couldn’t even hear them announce our classed running. However everyone had a lot of fun. I won two rounds before losing and Tena won one round [clap] I have times and pics and a video as well. I would have a video of the focus but it was taken with the Non digital camcorder.

BTW where were all the other Foci ?? Mine got lonely.

So here are the times

1st run (time trial)
R/T-.251[sleep]
60’-2.427
330’-6.981
1/8- 10.735
1/8 MPH-65.66
1000’-13.943
¼- 16.623
¼ MPH-85.10

2nd Run (time trial)
R/T-.221[sleep]
60’-2.425
330’-6.973
1/8-10.729
1/8 MPH-65.60
1000’-13.941
¼- 16.621
¼ MPH-85.05

3rd Run (1st round of eliminations)[race]
Dial in set at 16.59

R/T- .241[sleep]
60’-2.475
330’-7.060
1/8-10.823
1/8 MPH-65.43
1000’-14.042
¼-16.733 (not sure what happened here)
¼ MPH-84.00

I won this race because my opponet red lit(she would have broke out as well)

4th run (second round of eliminations)[race]
Changed my dial in to 16.60

R/T-.004 (my best light ever)
60’-2.426
330’-6.984
1/8-10.726
1/8 MPH-65.85
1000’-13.92
¼-16.585 (quickest run of the day)
¼ MPH-84.82

This was a very good race. If you’ll notice I broke out, but so did my opponnet. Margin of victory? How about .016.

5th and final run of the day[bigcry]
Changed my dial in to 16.50 (wish I would have gone with 16.55)

R/T-.070
60’-2.419
330’-6.962
1/8-10.705
1/8 MPH-65.82
1000’-13.904
¼-16.597
¼ MPH-82.43

This was shaping up to be a very quick run (compare the last two) However my opponet had caught me so I got out of the gas hoping he would do the same and lose. But it back fired on me. Any one guess where I let off?? Oh well you Live and you learn.

Ok here are some pictures

Wow man. A minivan at the drag strip. Never thought i would see it. But hey if its fun its fun. Nice R/T on the fourth run, thats really good timing.

daveyboy 05-12-2009 01:02 AM

yeah the van was fun. the bad part about it was she was only 4 tenths slower than the focus. That reaction time though just amazed me Im not sure really how I pulled that off

daveyboy 05-12-2009 01:05 AM

Oh I forgot to mention It was a mothers day racing bracket that she entered the van in, so it only seemed fitting that she drive the van right?
