Great day at the track yesterday and nervous as hell.

Got all 6 passes in which was awesome and very accommodating of the track officials. Mad props to Island Dragway in Great Meadows, NJ.

For those interested...

1st pass - half pass - shut down at half track
2nd, 3rd and 4th passes - moderate passes - took it to about 1000' and then shut it down
5th and 6th passes - full passes - these needed to be 9.99 or better. Pulled a [email protected] and then a [email protected] back to back.

Really out of practice on the launch from last year but will work on it this year. RT's were ass as well.

151 is my top MPH to date. That bike was hauling ass >:)

Sending in my paperwork today!

WOOT WOOT!!!

nice work
are you going to race regularly or did you need the license to be able to race on the track?
Not sure how regular I can make it with the family but I plan to get to the track at least 10 times this year.

You need the license if you run consistent 9's or better unless you have a track that won't kick you out. NHRA rules apparently.

Impressive numbers there and in the 9's too...nice !
Thanks man. The bike clearly is more talented than I am.

But I tell you, you're completely in God's hands when you do a 3-4 shift and you feel the rear slip out but you stay in the throttle. LOL.
