    Well the real secret in Pro stock is money..........

    Well that would be the common thought these days for people who are not in the class.In my life's experience I have seen guys due to one way or another came into a ton of cash and enter into a class of high competition and couldn't cut it.Didn't know enough or very little.Had little support from those guys who did.I think some of the top drivers I respect are top engineers that understand the big picture and all the little details that make them stand out from the rest.God rest his soul, one that in his class was a forerunner was John Lingenfelter.He had that Midas touch that everything he worked on turned to gold.
    Good Bye
