2017 Excellent Adventure

Next stop on this year's world tour is NMCA race in Bowling Green Kentucky this weekend. As per usual I was first in line to get in the gate. I found that they had promised my favorite pit spot to some nitrous pro street car as well as the spots where my friends pitted so I moved us all to what is now called "Fotti's Island". 3 of the 4 of those nitrous pro street guys have yet to show up so it is irritating to be ousted from our favorite spot for people that may never show up.

There was a test and tune from 1pm to 6pm and my first pass was an 11.60 on my 11.50 index but it seemed a little sluggish for the first 1/8th mile and cleaned out for the last part of the pass. I promptly made another pass at 11.51 and a third pass at 11.41. Then I let it cool a little and when it got to be 90 degrees out I made another pass at 11.44. So I thought I would slow it down by early shifting by 300 rpm. It ran 11.37 in 92 degree heat so I guess my 2/3 throttle does not work as usual when the temp is that high.

The weather forecast is for rain all weekend and a possible Monday run off so I am pretty happy that we have a nice motor home to watch movies in while it rains. LOL
