15.55 first ever pass. I was really nervous, so I think the second pass should be better

No, just sprinkles, so they got it dried off pretty well. Took off too early on the second run so no time. Bogged it down pretty well too. Made me a little jealous of the automatic guys.

Is 4k a good launch rev on the v6?

Tomorrow should be fun. 30 mile run then 3 back to back passes.

I see your having a good time.

Running the 1/4 mile is a lot of fun. You turning a 15.55 is not the best but I'll bet you really had fun doing it. I'm willing to bet as you do it more your times will drop a lot. Getting to know your car and how to control the launch will take some time.

It was a ton of fun. After a 30 mile ride and an hour wait to dry the track off we did our three passes. Took home the 15 sec bracket with a 15.33 average. Got it down to 15.21 on the first pass, but dropped third on the last one for a 15.49.

Over all it was a great time, and got to see some really amazing cars. It seemed like a mustang meet in the series with 5 other mustangs racing. Can't wait to do it again, although I think racing tires are in order before I head out again.

So I was taking video the whole time and put this together. Didn't capture all the runs, but I think it gives a pretty good feel for the event.

Let me know what you think

I really gotta thank tou for this one

A great video and I felt really good watching it. You sure looked as though you had a ton of just plain fun.
A winners plaque and a hundred bucks sure was cool. I love drag racing and would still be doing it if my health was not so bad.
Really good going.
Ronnie
