That pretty much happned, oh, about twice yesterday. A top-fuel went down the strip and dropped something and after 30 minutes of cleaning on the very next run an S-10 (not very stock) dropped a drive shaft on the run.

THEN what p'd me off the most was they would let all the bikes and snowmobiles run through the short staging lanes. Those damn things went through 3 rounds while I waited once.

Thanks Randy! Your companies products played a big part in the car's success at the track.

Heading back down to the track in the morning, I will take all the nice weekends I can get right now.

I thought you had an automatic... or am I getting you confused with Turbo Tom?
