    Re: Thursday Drag Week Update!

    The news that I picked up today...

    David (?) with the nice yellow Buick fixed the broken rear end from day 1 but today found out he broke the anti roll bar so he's running with the left front tire high in the air.

    Clark with the yellow Camaro lost a lifter around Wooster, Ohio. He's done.

    We made a pass this morning and went to loosen the shocks up and saw they had ripped the mounts off the frame. Apparently the brand new double adjustables had some valving issues that would let them compress fine but not extend. More than likely the 60 foot probs we've faced since day 1. Found a local chassis guy right near the track (Rick Adkins ?) super nice guy and he fabbed us up some new mounts and lent us a pair of shocks til we got home. Awesome!

    While we were there a line of cars pulled in for 'service'. Mike Crow broke a lower shock mount which was an easy weld up fix. Also Doc Fox limped in with a radiator peeing on the ground. Seems he punched a hole in it and Adkins was tigging it up when we left. Hope they made it.

      Dude, Ricky "The Bulldog" Adkins worked on DW stuff? That rules!!! Adkins is a heck of a racer. He was an IHRA Top Sportsman national standout when they ran the old national event schedule. Awesome guy, as you dudes found out.

      Here's his hot rod

                I don't believe Hot Rod was doing a Live Feed today.
