It just takes a trip to NJ. If enough cars show up, we can match similar cars against each other. Reaction time will best Horse power much of the time.

I checked out the Loring timing association It looks like a lot of fun in the stock classes. But it seems out of our racing area. Most of our cars are quarter mile and top speed is at the finish line. My Black 62 car is set to top at 135 MPH for that quarter mile. My red 62 car, blown, injected, 532 " , 1000 HP will do 200 plus easily, but will not meet the safety rules at Loring. So no go for me.

As you know, we are Outlaws. There are races in Texas that do not have so many rules. Maybe out there. Thanks for the suggestion, keep them coming.

Where the XXXX is Mike and Joe?????

I am glad we were born during the age of the gas combustion engine. There is nothing like the smell and sound of horsepower. Someday everything will be electric. What fun is there in that? 1000 HP. you gotta love it. Must be one hell of a rush.
