    We took the T-Type (big block) down to Northeast Dragway in Hertford N.C .Sat. for a AHRA winner take all bracket race & won it!
    The AHRA race director was there because they were having a special Mod verses Top winners race & he was presenting the trophy to the winner. Trophy looks like a NHRA Walley trophy & I got it!
    Top was on the Box & I was foot braking . He was on a 5.22 & I was on a 6.64. I was .003 on the tree & my worst short time 1.43 . He also broke loose (it was late & track was going away) & we took the win.
    I was only Buick there.
    The AHRA director is a Buick guy. Him & others liked the power steering & brakes I'am still running on the car.
    Thanks

    Yes, 1/8 th mile. The Buick had some fans. The return road is between the track & the fans & I was getting a lot of thumbs up.

    This is the last run of the night with the Top winner. Track was going away. I got out better then he did as you see he came over into my lane. Lucky I was gone.
