Frank Hawley's Drag Racing school = tons of fun!!!

This Friday I attended Frank Hawley's 1 day "Drag Race Adventure Course". Frank's school is at the Gainesville Dragway in Gainesvile. He usually does 3-day licensing courses for top fuel, funny cars, super comp, and a couple of bike classes, but one day a month he does an "Adventure" class thats solely about having fun and getting your feet wet in drag racing. For $400 (the licensing classes cost $3000ish) you get two 1/8th mile passes, two 1/4 mile passes, and instruction from Frank in a detuned Super Comp dragster. The cars are "detuned" by limiting us to second gear and using a 5400 rpm rev limiter, this is because we can't go faster than 10.99 without licenses. My parents got it for me as a graduation gift last year (my mom hoped it would scare me away from drag racing), but it did just the opposite and my next car is definitely going to be a weekend strip car (of course a fox coupe, lol). Now on to the pictures, last 4 are of my time slips. The 2 12.xx runs are my 1/8th mile passes where I let off after the 1/8th. Please ignore the reaction times, Frank told us to go AFTER we saw the light go green because "since today is about fun, I don't want somebody not getting time slips". Also, the 60ft times suck because we only used second gear.

my 3rd timeslips is too big to upload, but it was 11.279 @ 122.33
