Hmmm,... I'm heading up Thursday to pick up that rusty '61 Valiant parts car...

So,... If the T&T is on Thursday for a Fri-Sat race... Any record runs should be considered the same as a Friday T&T for a Sat-Sun race, right...?

(Not that I would consider running nitrous Thursday, not having tested anything yet. Just asking. )





Or.... Have Rob and Adam been secretly working on the Challenger preparing for a Wilkesboro reveal....? :twisted:
Come to Wilkesboro to find out! :wink:

My stance is that this t'n't is part of the weekend of racing (consecutive nights), so records should be allowed Thursday. Anyone else have opinions on this?

I think one year I set one of my records on Thur night at Wilkesborro. Even, if I did not, I think the rules state That any runs at a slant six race weekend, at the same track can count towards a record.

(disregard if it would affect one of my records :shock: :shock: :shock: )

Records can only be set at events that feature a Slant Six Racing News points race. Any run during these events, including tune ups, time trials, or race rounds in the Slant 6 or other bracket races will qualify. If it is three day event with the Slant 6 race on Saturday, records can be set on Friday or Sunday also


Yes, in my opinion they would count. The day before the race or the day after. Since we race Friday and Saturday. Thursday and Sunday qualify. Go for it!!! :D :D

We really did not want to take away Charlie's record!!! :D :D

Go for it folks. I have held my records for quite a while, and they are not that great. Not too bad for what I have in my cars, but still easily beaten, if someone makes an effort. I really don't see why The "D" Nitrous record couldn't be a low 7 in the 1/8 or low 12 in the 1/4 especially with a 170 in a 2700 car.

You guys stay cool, and set some records.

I think I have seen or heard it all now. Mason Dixon cancelled this weekend because it was too hot. :shock:

Norm, both Jacks and I had fun running nitrous at testing tonight. Nothing broke and we all set or re-set nitrous records!

Jack III re-set Ryan’s D with a low 10.

Jack Jr. set the open B with a 10 something. I bettered that with a 8.96 and Norm bettered it still with a 8.20 something.

Yes, we all made 1% backup runs as well. :wink:

That little 25 HP shot wasn’t as scary as I thought. It dropped my ET from 9.14 to 8.96 hitting the button after I shifted to 2nd.

The other guys are all running 100 HP shots.

Y’all git out here tomorrow and race with us!! :D

How's the weather there? I'm guessing hot and muggy?
