    He never really got credit for that 200 MPH run in (I think) Alton, Il????

    And NOBODY has had his staying power.

    He shows up at several NHRA events every year and qualifies for a couple. Unbelievable!!

    That 80 plus needs a few more pluses!!!

    Bristol brings them all out, Dakin went down in the 1st round too, but he was there!!!!! Heck, time they get to Norwalk next week, Clayton and Jimmy Nix will probably square off!!!!!

    Oh well, The Greek redlighted in the 2nd round against Antron, but they know he was there!!!! Made it to the 2nd round, anyhow---More then I did today, and at 60 I'm just a kid compared to him!!!!!!

    Made my day, he needs to win more often to improve his post round interview skills though

    Of course, that's just my opinion, I could be wrong!

    It sure was a day of surprises, Erica Enders dang near got the title in Pro Stock, Hight put down some times that were unreal, and Larry Dixon withstood the entire Schumacher "Army" to get his 1st win of the year! Norwalk should be interesting, too---maybe a bunch of new winners again?????

    Yeah, I am sure Erica was disappointed, the car was running like a bracket racer, then shook in the final. Maybe they tried to pull a little too much out of it. And Larry Dixon, wow that string of Father's day wins is unbelievable! I think it is now 28-2 for round wins and 6 of 8 titles since his first child was born. Amazing!

    Tell ya what, Pat....I'd better quit even watching drags on the tube---wanna get out there again soooooooooooooooo bad!!!! Also, I'd better quit looking at that FED chassis that S&W sells...............

    Erica has really come a long ways in the driving skills since last season, her new driving coach is really doing well!!!!
