Great pictures Paul. It does appear as if Brad's car has a lot of space between the tire and fender well in those last two pics! :eek2:

Paul,
Those really are great shots. The car really felt light going over that bump at the exit of turn 3 at 90+ mph but those pictures make it look worse than it felt. I was very careful to make sure the car was pointed straight as it went up and over the top though... :eek:

Tony,
TWS was double National this weekend with four T1 entrants. Charlie Shears was clearly the one to beat and he walked away on Saturday as I learned the track enroute to a 3rd place finish. Did better on Sunday qualifying 2nd, but again Charlie walked away from me. Unfortunately for him, he had transmission problems on lap 7 and had to retire. I held off Scott Grissom for the win.
All in all I was very happy with the result for my first time at the track. Charlie is definitely hot there as I believe he won the SRF race as well out of a field of something like 40 cars.

Brad, it was a pleasure - thanks for letting us roadies hang around for a couple hours.

The day was great fun - and all's well that ends well - especially the little meet we had with the nice State Trooper lady on the way home:

DPS Officerette: "I clocked you at 94mph in a 40mph zone"
Me: "Sorry Mam"
DPS Officerette: "Not on my road"
Me: "No Mam."
DPRS Officerette: "Not today."
Me: "No Mam"
DPS Officerette: "So - keep it slower"
Me: "Yes Mam"
DPS Officerette: "Now get the hell outa here"
Me: "Thankyou Mam".

Fitting end to a great day... :z: :thumb:

Congrats Brad. Nice weekend. It's tough going to tracks for the first time and racing guys that have many laps on the track. I did it a lot last year. Good job buddy. C U at Memphis.

Thanks Jeff. I've generally gotten better each time I've gone to a track. I'm betting you see the same thing this year.

Congrats on the win Brad. Nice pics Paul, esp of that sweet 69 Boss302.................36 years old and still racing!
That really was a sweet car. Very nice to see him still out there racing it. :cheers:
