Great pics as always, Craig! I've got some "from the stands" shots I'll try and post tonight - but certainly not like your "on the track" vantage point. I'm jealous!
Great seeing you again this weekend and, again, thanks for all your assistance on Saturday night.

If you can make it out next year, let me know and I'll get your passes taken cared of.

So what was the issue with the driveshaft? What do we need to do to "not be that guy"?

Nice pics. Wish I was there. Mopars greatly under represented here in my area.

Just got home, long drive back to Spokane. Got to meet Cheryl, finally. Very nice Lady, wish I could have made it back on Sunday but did not get out of the Hotel until 11 or so. I thought I was attending a MOPAR event, what was with the Mustang and Chebbies that were there on Saturday?? Somebody forget to tell the organizers that they they are not MOPARS?? Was kind of disappointed when they pulled the plug on Saturday.....weather was pretty weird.....

The wife and I made it home safely to sunny Glendale. I hope everyone had an un-eventfull trip like we did. No breakage & only 1 quart of oil for the whole weekend! I'm sorry I didn't get to meet all the FABO members like I wanted to, We probably shouldve put the beer down earlier each night and got up before noon each day? It was nice to meet Cheryl & Bob...Hope to see you again soon. Helluva weekend!!

Thanks for all the pics of my friends they look great! Just to let everyone know...

The orange challanger took first place in Super Pro and the Blue duster with the white top and strip took first in the pro class! The other guys made it to the 3rd round X2 and the 2nd round.
The green and grey hemi barracuda was its very first race ever... ran 10.25 consistantly at 1/3 throttle. Adjusted to almost half throttle and let off still running a 9.75! opps so went back to the pits, got a finger wagging and readusted for the next run.

That was Tanner, his Dad Herb runs the orange and black 69 Dart. (yes Herb is the same Herb that helped me do my car) We affectionately call him the DODGEFATHER lol. I even got a sticker made up for the trunk of his car with that on it.

This is supposedly the only 68 SS Hemi Dart thats been kept in the original condition. Its never had a rollcage in it or any mods done to it.

I took a pic of this Hemi Dart too, but didn't post it because it was crappy. My timing was off a bit while it was moving..... Oh well, here it is

Do you have any pics of what car won the A-Body stock class? We spent some time with the couple from Canada with the EV2 71 Demon and was wondering if it won anything?
