Just got home from Pinks

Had a good time car was not as fast as I had hoped.

Slow but within .03 all weekend. Got picked for the 32

Pulled into the staging lanes and the water pump gasket failed. Thrashing to find stuff to fit it we stuck some barrs leak in it and stoped it.

Made the pass and just got out ran by 2-3'

got back to the pits and there was water and oil all over the place. the barrs didn't hold up and the copper oil line for the oil gauge failed blew oil all over the place.

I have 700 miles on the car this year and no problems then two things on 1 pass.

Was a good time had all kinds of friends and Family there. 3 guys from the saturday night spot also made it.

Sept 24 is the air date

The gauge just goes under the hood. Been on the car for 5 years. Just put a new one on it to get out of the trailer. Still need to pull the pump.

I just watched the finals on youtube and the guy went .2 fast er than qualifying. I only had .05-.07 in mine if I really leaned on it.

Not a big deal.

Drew I had to much stuff to fit in the little trailer. Plus I don't think I could sleep another night in the front seat of the car.

I was also there and had a blast! I think I might have talked to 92 Cobra or at least I think his parents?! The 650 mile trip was totally worth it!

I had a good time as well (would have been better if my car was there!)

Probably try and get to one next year with my car.
