I've never understood that; who cares if it is "Daddy's" car? Like I wouldn't drive a nice Vette just because it was my Dad's? What difference does it make?

That was David Lott. I think he was just excited to get some good advertisement. He was trying to get all kinds of different things to race me.

Difference is daddy might be able to drive it better.

Seriously... Good run. I bet you that kid couldn't believe a 7,000+lbs truck was stepping out on him like that. BTW, What were the times in that run?

For some reason I was running a little slower at that track. Usually my 1/8 mile is in the 8.0 - 8.1 range. I think my best that night was like an 8.3 something.:shrug:
