Saturday started off with me running PRO ET on our ZX14 drag bike and an off the trailer 7.84 time run we were ready for round 1. Actually I was a little to ready and I went. -.005 red which sent me off to see Niki at the dreaded buyback window. Thank goodness for the buybacks because when it was all said and done 7 rounds later I was holding the big check as the PRO ET Saturday winner!!!
After a celebration beer it was time to shift focus back to the Busa and Money Mike for Grudge. We had 2 goals for Grudge – 1. BEAT CJ and JT on a good prepped track. 2. Beat Bud Light Lime
We rolled to the lanes and talked to the BLL crew about setting up a race. They are world famous and everyone knows they are superfast. With Lil Rich riding and the slider in the bike we were looking for the hit or something to make the race fair. They didn’t want to give anything up just yet as it was their first pass of the weekend. We ended up agreeing to race heads up since it was their shakedown. Lil Rich left on us as we knew he would with the slider but Mike was running him down fast. BLL had a shifting issue on the big end and Mike was able to run around him and turn on the win light! Thanks to the BLL crew and Rich for giving us a race. Goal 2 completed!
With the BLL race done we were ready for CJ and JT. This is a race we have been trying to get done all year and after the last 3 KOTS races this was a BIG BIG race we were really looking forward to. We lined them up heads up JT got out in front and Mike drove around him on the big end for the WIN!!!!!
What a night! We won PRO ET, beat BLL and finally got lined up with CJ/JT and took win!
Thanks to everyone that made this weekend happen. Dad for getting the busa motor done so fast, Dale for all the hard work at the track and Money Mike for riding the wheels off that bike!
