    Finally, the Governor's gonna let us have our Streetnights back. He took care of his entitled golfing buddies first, before he got around to the working class. Live Free or Die , my arse...

    June 24th , the pursuit of lower ET's and higher MPH shall begin again in earnest......JIM

    Outside eating right now, but this new ruling should change that. I would have to do some reading Joe, and right now, I'm drinking Patron and not looking to tax my brain or eyes too much...Jim
    I'll be sending ya a PM when I'm planning on going...

    The god's honest truth is i couldn't care less about the ETs. I only go for the cold beer and steak tips afterwards.

    Not looking so good for tomorrow's Streetnight . Thunderstorms predicted. ... I'm callin it and planning on Friday's Streetnight. I'll get there early, unload and eat something before the circus starts. It can get busy with hour long waits in the staging lanes. I have seen 4 staging lanes a few times last year, hopefully it won't be that busy...

    Last Wednesday was actually cancelled due to rain. Track would have taken 2 hours to dry. I'm 8 miles away and got no rain...go figure....
    Jeepers, looks like the 1st and the 3rd will also be tentative dates , as thunderboomers are possible.:mad:

    Made it to the track last night.Got there 4:30ish, got in the double line.

    Met some guys from South of Boston, Weymouth area. Some trailered, some drove thier rides.
    Unfortunately the track was plagued by exploding Hondas, who both should have gotten out of it before scattering parts and oil over 400' of track in the right lane.

    Track was shut down both times for 30 minutes or so. I was at the front of staging lanes 1st time, took so long , I got out, took my helmet off and walked to the restroom and back. Should have grabbed some food, cause sitting in the staging lanes was to be the order for the night.

    I suspect my drag radials have seen thier last pass, as last 2 Streetnights I have fought for traction, peddling it in the 60', obviously hurting my times.
    Could have been the track , as anything with a pair spun off the line. Not one wheelie was seen all night. Or a combo of track and my ET Streets going south.
    Dunno.....JIM
