I had a great time this year at the Southern Super Heavy Shootout. Being the event organizer and racing four classes was at least one job too many. But I love hard work and stress! Next year I’ll do better to recuit a few more volunteers.
The morning test sessions went great and the car was running very consistent times. Norm Pelton and I have been going head to head at every major event this year. I was up 2 to 1 before SSHS. As luck would have it we came up against each other in the first round of Pro Street. I got pulled off the starting line due to a power steering fluid leak. I took the car back to the pits and Rik and I started to thrash on the car. We missed the call for Heavy Eliminator and 12.0 Index. We made it back for Big Dog class, but my car is under powered for that class.
In the end I only ran one round of competition, but I had a great time with my friends and my son David.
