    On your ME (10 Second) WIN @ Chowchilla!!!
    Looks like you need to 'Lose' 0.06 or so though ... Tight in the Semi and, Definately Very Tight in the Final.
    Great Racing!

    thanks jak. i do appreciate it. before the semi, the air was waffling around a little bit, so i left the boat a little "hot". i saw ken redlight, ran it on out for the 9.992.
    in the final, the air just started to get better about 10 minutes too early, but too late for me to do anything about. i'd taken a little out, but not quite enough. i had a good holeshot on the guy, he pulled up and put his nose on my steering wheel, but plated and didn't want to take the stripe at 7/8, so i thought you just stay there then, and we'll drive on out. my 9.94 wasn't quite as bad as his 9.68 . and, of course, he had no idea where that came from, but he never did go by me.
    it was a good thing that we could stay busy all weekend after learning about the loss of Lance Matty. lance had raced the king kong flat in the mod elim class for 2 decades in ihba, a champion in every respect and one of the nicest people i've ever met. driving from tuscon to chowchilla thursday night for the race, lance, his son daniel, crew chief bob, and bob's daughter perished in a single vehicle accident. lance's daughter survived with severe burns. words cannot describe... first randy, then lance...
    ming, saturday.. boat is ready, driver is ready.
