    Lol...They do pay well, from what I hear. I'm always knocked out by the second or third round anyway.

    Midwest raceway in Manhattan KS. Awesome little 1/8 mile track...Very laid back. You can BBQ in the pits and/or bring a cooler for some adult beverages. I am also about 50 minutes away from Heartland park. I try to make a few test&tunes during the spring/summer...

    Home drag strip? They always tell me "You don't have to go home, but you can't stay here."

    Moving target these days as our tracks close and then are resusitated or resurrected as you prefer, but Fontana if it reopened, Irwindale 1/8th mile, and Famoso, damn the the rotting fruit or incendiary temperatures.

    the old farm truck is about as slick as a barn door pretty quick off the line though

    well i mite be off but have been 126 in the 1/4 but that was at 6700 so to do 130 i would shift into 4th gear and lock the converter might even get a little more if it didnt blow

    martin is also amazing!!! but too far to go to on a regular basis. funny thing is a local windsorite bought and redid the track a few years ago, after the canadian gov't jerked him around when he wanted to open up a local track. bunch of a-holes! they told him he had to pay for million dollar off ramps, which they had already slated to replace.
    If you look at a TnT day at Martin VS Lapeer, I have better luck running Lapeer... at least
    I can hook at Lapeer... I've had my problems at Martin on TnT days.. I finally had to put
    the car back in the trailer... my car is a high 8s car and when I was going to the Mopar race
    at Martin I would get there on Friday for some passes.... I couldnt hook to save my ass..
    but when they spray the track its fine and I have no issues... I call Norwalk my home track
    and its a 3 hour drive but I usually stay for the weekend ... I have my problems at Milan also
    when its TnT days... they dont like to prep either... normally my car can hook in a mud puddle
    but I need just a little prep.... Ubly and Lapeer are both short in the shut down area for me... I
    can stop without to much of a problem but once in a while I did have to dump the chute but I
    dont like to(I'm toooo lazy to pack it) based on which way the wind is blowing(I can get a couple
    extra MPH if its blowing down track and that can get me 153mph)

    ...Also do standing mile events (mostly at the ohio mile).
    I got a chance to co-drive a buddy's Z06 on the Texas Mile at Goliad just before they moved to Beeville. Had a blast and ran just over 164 ('bout 70+ shy of your Evo).
    I would like to try the Blazer on the Ohio mile some day. It's run 155+ in the 1/4 a dozen times using only third gear. On the mile I'd have to use fourth and lock up the converter.....
    I do like mph.......
