I gotta thank HBjet and Jet5fun for the stress-free weekend of racing. No drama in the 999 pit for once and the one hardware change we did make after the loader broke got us back into 8.50 territory again. Thanks guys! number one qualifier and the win. The monkey is finally off my back!

best passes were 8.56 at 122 and 8.61 at 124 mph. mpd/dne power and chevron 91..not a bad combo.

the red cup, blue cup, no cup, sippy cup, yuma guys all ran hard.

thanks for the laughs and the bath-twice!

and thanks to everyone that stopped by the pit and helped empty the cooler!

now lets go to the river!

thanks everyone.

yeah Widowmaker's boat looks insane going down the track. not an ass dragger by any means. good job on the win Kjel!

ming water was quite refreshing actually. i'll let you know if i develop any disabilities due to the bath.

cs-the tree was weird. i left a bit ealier than i had in the first round and somehow cut a .5 rt. Traylor said he left early and cut a .7
I think something was up with the tree in final because i was cutting 1's and 0's all weekend.

the boat was truckin' to half track and then unloaded in the chop. went 8.67 at 121 mph (i think) and harold went 8.58 at 118 mph

i still gotta find a rough water set up that works....

You aernt kidding about that tree. We need new lights in a big way.
Guthrie said the new lights are going to be ordered today, hopefully the Irvine lake Fundraiser gets us to where we need to be.
