  • It's official, not going to make it!

    As of last Thursday I am officially out of Drag Week. To say I am disappointed is an understatement, this would have been my 6th., and their is not a better way to spend a week anywhere!! The car is ready to go, everything working (even the horn), nitrous filled, race gas bought, new helmet and firesuit, new belts and new cert.
    The company that I work with has asked that I attend a meeting at the Pentagon with the Secr. of the Navy to discuss a major purchase of the equipment I train on. For some reason my boss can't understand that a "car trip" could interfere!

    Best of luck to all you maniac's, be safe and have a ball, see you next year.

        Really hate to hear that. Was looking forward to seeing you and the Vette, both icons of DW. Hope to see you in 2014.

          Well that sucks.

          Pentagon, eh? With a screenname like "drilr", I always thought you were a dentist. Lol

                  That sucks. Another reason just making it to DW is harder then people think.

                    still bumming, but I get it. I double/triple checked my vacation already, keep having a bad dream that they yanked it. I pointed this car out to Monica as an example of the lunacy, maybe they will last minute reschedule like "they" are sometimes known to do.
