Well I was able to race for the first time since 04 at a NMRA race.

I drove the car to Milan 92 miles. Had my drag week trailer with tires and jack and stuff.

Made two test passes in the LH lane on friday 1.41 10.34 128.90 1.40 10.29 129.75

Had to sleep in the car due to poss rain overnight. Was comfortable for what it cost me.

Sat got a test pass in the RH lane 1.39 10.28 133.04

did the 30 mile cruse got a 25 min cool down. 3 passes in 25 min 1.40 10.2411 133.47 1.39 10.2238 133.59 1.3739 10.2207 133.64

Loaded up my stuff and changed the tires back hooked the trailer and headed out. Stoped and got gas the battery was dead. Quick check on the laptop and the alt is only making 11.5 volts. Jumped on the highway and drove fast to make sure it would live long enough to make it home.
Pulled in the garage and tried to restart the car it was still dead.

I pulled the alternator appart today and the brushes were gone.

Got luckey and it lived long enough to make it home.

Had a great time. I was also home early enough to take my daughter to the school bus race that night.

I was able to get a pic from Jason Reiss of the car on the first test pass.
