The orange car is finally getting sorted out. We raced in Nc on Saturday, And in Sc on Sunday. The Supercharger is definitely making the power to get the job done, Now it's just up to me to get it down the racetrack. The Ptra gave supercharged cars a 200 lb weight break.I believe the car will be faster, I again just have to get down the track. We are in negotiations with several companies regarding my Nhra Top Fuel deal for 2009. Any and all help you guys can give as far as leads is greatly appreciated. We will be testing in Jackson, Sc Thursday night. We are getting ready for the ORSCA Race next weekend.

Saturday we headed to Julian, Nc to Piedmont dragway for the 3rd stop on the PTRA tour. We qualified 5th with a 5.17 @146.3 mph. In the Second round I drew the ptra world reord holder and lets just say he put it on me. I treed him with a .020 light to his .059. But he ran me down going a 5.09 to my 5.19. We are expecting the PTRA to even the rules up but havent heard anything yet. Today I left at 6am to fly to Brownsburg, Indiana to meet with one of the sports prominent owners. We are trying to get a deal together for 2009 and have 2/3 of the finiancing secured. I just need to secure the other 3rd by August 1st. Please email me if you know any corporate people that may be willing to advertise nationally. Thanks guys

We loaded up Saturday May 3rd and headed to Orangeburg Sc for some in the heat testing. This was our first test on a 125 degree racing surface with the procharger. We made 7 passes, with each getting faster than the one before ( always good). The car is definitely close to being where we want but We still need a little more. Mph is way off PTRA and ORSCA pace. The new Torque converter picked us up to 143.9 mph. We have our third points race in Piedmont , Nc this weekend. We are changing rear gears in the car now. Im gonna try to get the car through the sixty foot a little smoother. It's really wanting to rattle the tires about 50 feet out. We'll be At Carolina Dragway testing thursday night.
