After having consistency problems at the last couple of races the Rancho Framing /
White Cap / Direct transport team made some changes to the chassis, which really seemed to
help as the car went down the track on every run without Mark having to lift. We ran a 5.86, 5.74,
and a 5.81 in qualifying and although we did not run as fast as we would have liked we were glad
that the car went consistently down the track on every run. The last qualifying run would have been
better except we burned a piston when a fuel line clogged and we had to change the motor. In the
first round we ran against Sean Bellemeur in the Meer Homes Inc Camaro. We gave it our best
effort running our quickest time of the race a 5.722 252.66, but it was not enough to get around
Sean’s 5.679 253.61.
We will be back at Las Vegas next week for the Division 7 race which is always one of the most
competitive races of year.
