    Are you going to be racing, or a spectator?

    I'll admit, I know pretty much nothing about drag racing. I don't think I would go to this unless someone goes with me.

    Ended up qualifying #3. Today's Q3 and Q4 runs were disastrous. The hot, slick track just did not work in our favor.

    I went and found a dart board and borrowed the sink from a concession stand, and was able to combine them before round 1. We found out we had a competition bye round 1, which gave us a much needed extra test hit. It tried to slip the tire around .65 of a second but stayed glued. Round 2 was in darkness (a number of delays occurred in dusk), and the cooler track came back in our favor, too much so. We ran faster than our dial in a losing breakout.

    Thought I posted the video for Q1 and Q2. Q1 was a little messy - they didn't mark us as oiling the track, but there's no question we did. Dipstick blew out of the transmission.
