AnthonyD... Take me for example, I am getting walked in this ROTM, also my 2cnd Nomination so I cannot be nom'd again for a minute. Am I crunchy, nope. I trully wish I wasn't nominated or could take it back and have the members that voted for me vote again. I seriously feel that alot of the votes I got are friendship votes and as much as I appreciate them I think I am taking votes from a better racer than me, TParker. I would presume most of the votes I got are from the Dezert crew, who would obviously vote for the guy in 3rd place right now, TParker, who would then be in a close 2nd or possibly first place. Who, BTW I feel should win, hands down he has more racing expierience than any two guys I know put together, and I'm 32, I know some old cats.
Is there any way we can do that ZX3_chick? Take me out and have the members that voted for me re-vote, I will still forefit for the required time to be nominated again. I suggested it tonight to Tom at the track as a matter of fact. I feel like I'm steeling votes from some guys that deserve them more.

Back to AnthonyD...you joined in 05 and have 40-something posts, you choose to say that garbage about the "nice guy, winning", I'm the "nice guy" getting the friendship votes and maybe one or two based on my drag racing history. So lets take me out and see what happens because I remotely agree with you, however me and wd have gotten lippy on more than one occasion so I would say you should research his racing before making a post like that, HE IS A RACER FO SHO!

I'm sure you're a real stand up fella WD but ZX3 has your car hands down.
You obviously have not seen WD40 on track a very smooth & presice driver, I've personally seen him take down cars costing 2-3 times as much at local events. racing is not just about how much money you can throw at a car.
All the nominations this month are sweet rides & i know three of them are good drivers.

Billy we are running HPDE with NASA on Sunday and you need to come down and take a ride you will be hooked on road racing as much as you are hooked on drag racing.

The ROTM contest IS about the cars. Whether modified or staight out of the box. ALL do amazing things. However, there is a respect and admiration quality to it as well.

Quite frankly, I was surprised to get nominated.

Regardless of the results, I am in stellar company.

I am extremely flattered by the membership for their votes.

Billy -

Take him up on the offer.

Nothing against drag racing, but there is no feeling in the world like pulling through a tight sweeper, giving it the beans and having that momentum blast you down a straight.

Combine that with the the full knowledge that particular satisfaction is short lived. It is replaced with an entirely different experience when you lay into the brakes. It feels like you AND the car are in tune with what needs to be done to slow the beast enough to make the next corner.

Top it off with having a faster car ahead of you make a critical mistake and suddenly, you are no longer 100 yards behind them, but THREE (3) feet off of there bumper and watching his/her eyes in their rear view mirror and see the realization that their lead and horsepower advantage evaporate in an instant.

I think there are several things that make road racing great (any kind of racing really), but Don Panoz (of Panoz Racing fame) said it best...

"I grew up where football was everything. I could go home after graduation and college and sit at the bar and listen to the high school quarterback tell the same story about the winning pass. As I got older, I didn't want to be that guy. Racing affords all of us the opportunity to be atheletes again, and never force us to live in the past."

All very true. I'm not sure if I canmake it tomorrow Todd but thanks again for the invite.
I raced at SpeedWorld Dragstrip tonight and did farely decent.
All low 15 high 14 second passes with my best being 14.91 to beat my previous best. Add that to my best r/t time @ FireBird Dragstrip friday night of .003 and I had a pretty good weekend.
Kill em' list for this evening:
-scion tc
-Accord
-mustang
-mustang
-duramax truck
-early model supra (best run)

I lost one to a mustang as well but not by much and he was a narly sounding fox body.

Good luck tomorrow guys, be careful ... ... on the way there!
