Mike, thank you so much for making the long trek downstate to Milan. It was great to meet you, share pics, and talk tech.
I lost in Round 2 to a late model challenger. He was running in the 13's and I think I got distracted by giving up all that time given I am such a newbie. My reaction was abysmal, nonetheless I almost ran him down. If there was 20 more feet at the end I woulda! Ran 11.915 in that round...
(Mike, remember when I went to write a 11.90 dial-in and changed it at the last minute to 11.80? Argh!)
All said, it was a great day and I am still pinching myself in disbelief knowing after 4 runs we have the car in mid 11s. Not to get carried away but if we wanted to get serious, I think there's potential in that car for even better.
That and I finally got to meet someone from the 62-65 crew!

Hi fellas and gal,
Well, yesterday I drove to Milan for the event and met Jim Jablonski and his wife. I witnessed Jim run a 11.62 through the mufflers during time trials in his sweet 64 Fury. I did leave before eliminations were complete (220 miles home) but Jim was winning at that point! We'll have to let Jim fill us in on his results.
I also ran into a racer I met in the UP in March of 2015 while snowmobiling. He was driving his brother's car. I saw him break out with a 10.08 on a 10.10 dial-in.
It was a enjoyable day (not counting the sunburn).
