Default Pictures from today's (9/4) drag racing event

Here are the pictures I took of today's races.

http://gallery.me.com/wesley.walton#100122

I do not know who the owners of these cars are yet but hopefully they will not mind that I have posted pictures of them

If you want a copy of a picture let me know!

I can't believe i'm the first one back

couple of cars dipped into the 13's - lot of fast cars out today. most people had in excess of 100MPH traps. I think oldpoopie went the fastest for the day - followed by OCTDI. Those two were neck and neck the whole time.

lots of fun, wish I was spending my time going fast instead of trying to figure out why my boost was falling off

It was a lot of fun to watch...was impressed to see what TDI's were capable of being a noob and all!

13.9x something was the best - ~108 top traps?

lots of people trapping 103-106 and doing high 14's, plenty of us were fresh to the drag scene.

My best was my first run and it was something terrible like ~15.24 @ like ~97 - my best trap was just shy of 100 and I kept having turbo problems.

Mine were in the 17.6~17.8 second and 75~80 mph range, probably the slowest trap speed of our group.
On the plus side: I got to enjoy the experience for 3 seconds longer per run than most of the others. That's like one free run with every five completed, right?

Man, your MK2 was hauling!!! Great traps. And, I need to learn how to drive. I kept babying it off the line with 2.5 60' times. Best time was a 14.97. At least I said goodbye to 15's this year, and nothing broke!

Some great shots!! Awesome day at the track and some very impressive runs. Justin's (Poopie) car was impressive, as was Travis' (shoulda run more than 3 passes, you were getting better with each run and shoulda been in the 13's as well!), but I have to say that Robert's car was pretty impressive too, breaking into the 13's just shy of Justin's time and his trap speed was right up around the same (104-105 mph) and all this from a guy who's only run his car down the 1/4 mile less then a dozen times EVER! And Pierre was out there giving it his all and getting faster passes each time, very nice! Well done to all!!

Sorry, I'm running B99.9. You'll have to check pictures for the other cars and their residue.

Those of us on the east coast who could not attend would like to see a roster with times and speeds!
