Just got home from a great couple of days hanging out with my fellow Z06 brothers and sisters. It was great to see some "old" faces, and to meet so many new folks. Rather than risk offending someone by leaving out a name, thanks to all, especially a certain lady and her cinnamon flavored devil brew :lol:

Also a special thanks to MikesZ06 for making the effort to introduce me around - you are the best!

And of course a big thank you to all involved in organizing an event of this size and doing such a great job! Also thanks to our sponsors, and of course to Adam and the whole NCM staff - you done good!!!

So it was all good - the friendshp, the tours and seminars, and the drag racing. I can;t wait to go again next year!

OK .. five exclamation points are my limit ... later :z:

Kat,

Conditions were less than great .. very hot, very humid. They put some VHT down at the beginning and again about 1/2 way through, but I was having a lot of trouble getting my launch right (would either bog or spin, with only 300-400 difference in launch RPM - this was my 3rd time out with the BFG Drag Radials and my most inconsistent 60' times) and it got loose, real loose, almost every run in the first 1000' - I have never lifted that much on a track in my life.

I did manage an 11.6 on my 2nd run, not bad in the heat and conditions, but didn;t have a good run after that.

But it was fun ...

Les

Congrats on the 11.6 :thumb:

Sounds like last year as far the prep goes :( I never hit the rev limiter so many times in my entire life.

I will still try to make it back next year :yeadog:

Hey Mike, thanks for that news .. I didn't expect the 11.6 to hold up, wish I could have been at the banquet to get the trophy. Next year I will plan better!

Les, nice to see you again! I must say, you know how to trake a car down the track! If I didn't know better, I would swear you've done it once or twice before! :lol:
