I was asked to go. There slowest index class is a 6.0
What class will you race in, street ET?
It will be a good time for sure.
I dont think I am gonna make this one. Need to get my bike dialed in for SEMDRA.

i was really impressed with your bike runnin low 7.50's with the windshield.you git down around rockingham or kinston dragway you could pick up about a tenth.hell i bet it would see some high 30's.

Farmington Update: there was a very low turnout for the event today. Several Harleys though, I was the only vrod racing. Street class had a whooping 7 or 9 bikes, not sure on the exact number. I did make it to the semi finals. Bike was not running that fast due to heat and humidity. I dialed in on 7.61, went red -.020 ran a [email protected] Theres going to be a AHDRA race at the farm on 09/16/07 ...... Also 1st time Ive ever gotten the front wheel in the air on a launch at drag strip on the V, to say the least that wasnt expected, but I recovered pretty quick and was sort of ready for it when it happened the next 2 times, and I thought my clutch was getting weak (slipping) guess I was wrong(thank goodness) LOL
