Congratulations to John and Stan Zerucha who ran back to back 8 second times! 8.97 and 8.98 both in the 149 and change mph. John ran the 8.97 and Stan ran the 8.98. Doug Hecker ran a slew of 9.0's at 149 and change. We may try to pair them both up with the weather on Staurday being better, maybe we will get to see a side by side 8 second run with to big block full size Buicks!
I beleive Jack Cotton ran his Turbo over 151 mph. Lot of personal best times set so far! Rob Chilenski (blue wheels up Stage 1 ) ran 9.56 at 139 and thats with the steel heads!
Car count of Buicks racing for just the test and tune Friday was 65 Buicks. In the past this day is usually pulled around 30-35 cars. Weather looks good for Saturday and we are expecting a lot more to show up. Gary Paine ran his Skyhawk (Jim Wilsons old car) and was runing in the 9.50's. John Massoud was running 9.80's and the engine let go BIG time unfortunately, it also took out the trans. He never did get to run Doug and never got a chance to run the juice. Pete Bernard was running his twin turbo GN in the 8.40's.
Enough for now.
Tonight the weather is in the 50's with tomorrow to be in the low mid 70's.
