Welcome back to the game!!! I just recently dragged my friend Ken back into it after nearly 30 years of "retirement" following a pretty bad crash at a hill climb event. He was at the Detweiller hill climb event in Peoria, IL... He was the defending all time record holder and his record was just barely beat by a competitor... Ken had one run left for the day and decided that he needed to air down his tires a little more to get some more forward bite on the launch... He took off to reclaim his record and he ended up crossing the finish line sideways never lifting off the throttle and took the record back... unfortunately for him, the ride didn't end there. He crashed his fully race prepped Trans Am into some trees and narrowly survived... the car sadly was gone forever!!! He stated that he lost control due to the low air pressure in the tires. He did some drag racing but never got back in a twisty car again until this year.
He drove my Mustang, but wasn't nearly as ballsy as I was with it...
He'll be back after a few events though (i hope)... He just bought a '94 Miata!!!
