    Not yet, but it's home! It's definitely a 20 footer, and needs a final buffing in a couple days after some time letting the clear coat cure, but I'm happy (and I got to drive it today!).
    Escaped on a technicality.

            Well, sounds like I won't be paying much attention to Drag Week this year. Last year was awesome. For some reason everything Hot Rod and Speedvision ever touch regarding video coverage of a race misses the mark. Usually too much added drama that misses the REAL drama that's already there. And too host-centric. Oh well, hopefully there will be good coverage of the YB Nats.

              I echo Chad's comments on Kyle and the work he produces. It is beyond awesome and his stuff regularly reminds me how badly I suck at getting video of anything. Kyle and I were the only two outside media people on DW2005. I was there covering the event for CompetitionPlus.com as an "emebedded" reporter and Kyle was doing his killer video work with the Parish truck and covering the event in general. I think there were 50 something cars that year. DW2005 was also the first time I met Chad and weirdly, three years later we went into business with BangShift. Pretty wild. Between watching Atwell swap the lifter in his Hemi dart in a gas station parking lot in Ohio, chatting with the Korth brothers who were just happy to be there enjoying the week, riding in Larson's car when it still had the iron lung on it, and sitting in the room when the debate raged over the most infamous couple minutes of footage Kyle ever shot, it was one of the great weeks of my gearhead life. (Hey...who has that $100 bill, anyway...everyone in the room signed it).

              As best I know there will be a live video feed every day. Dustin Gould, who is a friend of ours will be the dude behind the camera on the feed and he'll do a good job. Am I saying this because I think it will replace the work that Kyle has done? No. Just wanting to answer the question.

              As far as BS coverage, we should have photos and stuff each day. I'll be in the tower during racing and hopefully BS'ing with you dudes (and dudettes) at night getting the good stories from the day so we can keep people up on what's going on. I'll also have stickers with me if anyone wants one to slap on their car. We've heard an average of 2 tenths improvement with each sticker. I'd recommend installing 10 of them.

                I've spectated on '09 and '10. Hope to join you all for a few this year too. I know the coverage thing sucks. But on a positive note,,,, why not take this opportunity for every to fly the BS colors for all to see. I mean at least 2' stickers on each quarter, and BS- DW shirts on every body, as we Forum Freaks do on PT. Or BS parachutes, great TV coverage. BRIAN????

                    Some say that a BS chute would rip the back half off of Chad's wagon . . . .

                      10 BS stickers . . . cheaper than a 75-shot. A BS body wrap might be what it takes to beat Larson . . . .

                        I got a chuckle out of that... Don't tell Larson or he'll wrap his twice, LOL!

                        I was just chatting with Larson in Topeka on Saturday. There's a group of Aussies with an Australian Charger (right hand drive) finishing up the car at Larson's shop. It may well be a contender this year on Drag Week. The thing looks BITCHIN!

                        It's really no different than trying to glue them back on after she has her way.

                            I am really looking forward to seeing the Aussie Charger. Chad told me about that one a little while back when Larry clued him in.

                              Yes, there is a car coming from England. No, it is not the Rolls. Yes, it is freaking cool as hell and it will probably be the only one in America for the time that it is here.
