I finally got around to replacing the last piece of yellowed lexan on the Duster. Now I'll be able to see out the back finally. :lol:

I was hoping to fiddle with the Duster a little bit before the Motormile race this weekend.... Not sure that's gonna happen though... I will likely do my typical "Show up with a non-running car and beg for help" thing I've been teased about over the years (for good reason).

It runs okay and I've even changed the oil, flushed the cooling system, bled the brakes, replaced the rear windshield and sprayed a little paint on a couple spots.

I guess we'll see y'all Friday (hopefully, if I finish something at work by Thursday).

The Duster is running nice and consistent again. 9.00-9.10 pass after pass. The driver can’t cut a light yet, but he’ll keep looking for the tree. Too cautious not to redlight.
Another day of racing today. :D

Another very successful race weekend for the Duster. It made 13 passes over the three days of racing with every pass between 9.00 and 9.18. I adjusted the dial based on the weather and it ran pretty much what I expected every time. The heat played the biggest factor in the car being off the dial. The most it was off was the final race against Rick Covalt in the semis when we both slowed down. It was only off by .0624.

I need more seat time to be able to figure out my starts and cut better lights, but I won the race Saturday and was third on Sunday.

Rick Covalt beat me Sunday in a really great race. He dialed 9.01 and I dialed 9.10. We cut identical lights. We were both off the number due to the heat, but he was closer to his dial by .0047! :shock: If ya gotta lose, that's the way to go down swingin'! :D

Looking forward to Wilkesboro next month!
