Took my 2012 SE to the drag strip!
 
My friend has been bugging me to go to the drag strip with him for a while and I finally decided to go. I made 5 total runs and the following is my best run of the night. Enjoy!

1/8 mile at 65.63 MPG? You must have been going downhill the whole time [:)] It's cool that you took your SE to the strip though.

I'll scan in the time slip if you don't believe me.

You need a helmet for a 16 second run? At our strip you don't need a helmet til you're under 14 secs.

Still the best 1/4 mile time form an SE I've seen reported was a 15.9 by MotorTrend.

Yeah, I could see it getting there. I'm not a "pro" drag driver and the weather was not very cooperative for drag racing (hot and humid). I could probably get it in the low 16's if it was cooler and dry
