    Default Those Guys Racing World Finals Update

    World finales update. I don't know where to start, wow, what an awesome race. We ran test and tune on Thursday, came off the trailer and ran a 9.09 followed by a 9.04. I came back to the pits and told my dad, "let's see how hard we can push, let's see if we can run a 9.00". Next pass came back with an 8.88. We then knew we had enough power to be competitive in the T/E class. We took one more shot at a 9.00 and found a 8.94. Friday came and we were just a little too fast. Saturday we had two more qualifying passes and we were not in the top half of the field. Needless to say, our goal was to get in the top half of the field. First pass ran a 9.04 taking us to number 9. Next pass ran a 9.10 and lost two spots to number 11. So the quest began. Sunday race day first round win. Boat was running great and we felt good with the set up. Battle are way through two more rounds. Second round was a perfect pass, 9.000. Third round we had a bye and took the pass. So, here we are in the finals. My first year racing on the biggest stage in our sport and I see the red light come on. Needless to say I was heartbroken.
    I would like to say thank you to a few people that have supported me through this race season. My wife Kristi and kids Zack and Marin. My dad Gary and mom Nancy. Without your support this would have never happened. My team, Brian Chapman (short fuse racing), Jim Burleson, Mitch Seal, Shane and Jennifer Francis. My aunts and Grandmother Ruby. Jason and Drake, thank you for letting my crew watch my runs from your bad ass spot. It was pretty cool seeing the Roke banner from the line.
    Also, the sponsors and vendors that help me along the way.

    I keep telling people that these guys are about to start owning the 9.0 deal, you guys certainly made a statement last weekend. Very impressive Gary and Garret. You guys are kicking ass right now, keep up the good work.

    There is nothing better than a "father son" racing team. You guys are both a class act and exemplify what racing is and should be about. Great sportsman and even better racers. Its been a real pleasure getting to know both of you and your entire team.

    There IS nothing better than a "father son" racing team x2.... Guy thanks for the kind words, racing a drag boat with your son is as good as it gets... you don't have to take my word for it... just ask your dad.
    just saying.




    Its been a great 1st season for "those guys racing" we started the season running the 10.00 class for 2 races then up to the 9.00 class for the rest of the season, we were fortunate enough to win two of those races... the njba is LOADED with vary tuff competitors and the 9.00 class is no exception! (039 and 905 will punch you in the gut !!!), Finishing our 1st season at the world finals was truly a great experience that we will remember the rest of our lives... last year we were there to support and spectate. This year we were in it to the end! Our congrats to all the winners. We are having the time of our lives racing with you guys.... made lots of new freinds... and memories that will last a life time. Our freind Charlie Lowe over @ AZ drag race report put some cameras on the Trophy Wife @ firebird and made this video for us check it out! we think it's a pretty cool video.
