Id be a little conflicted about who to root for anyway lol

I've never run there, I hear a lot that the times are faster than E-town. Usually about 18 Nats show up. I like Ford and Buick too.

You should def run you'll have much more fun. With the weather getting colder not likely many more events this year. So one last chance before months of waiting for winter to end.

Not tough at all. Possible last event for 5 months.

Pasta is coming over today to change his timing belt (03 SVT) I'm sure he'll be interested in going. If there are other SVT's going I'll leave the Nat home and take the 02 SVT.
Cold weather burnouts make the best pics, smoke stays low and compact to the track. My pic on dragtime was on as cold day.

lol...your right...

Man, i wish i would have known you were doing a Timing belt. I would have loved to get some pointers on doing it. I need to get mine done and don't want to take it to the dealer. Im at 95K and scheduling it for the dealer this week...The VVT is making me skitish or else i would do it myself. Had no problem doing the belts/chains on my subies and nissans.

I will PM you my cell, i am down in Bayville, so we can roll out. Which one are you going to go to, Atco or E-town?

It's funny I was going to post a timing belt seminar invite, but thought it to short notice. We intended to take pics and post a detailed how-to but it took long enough as is.

So far going to Atco we have:

Had a great time with Dan, Anthony, and Anthony Jr. Didn't run but saw some nice runs.



Vid of a GN legend running today, he later ran a 9.1 after we left.
