Default Raced at Gateway International Raceway today

First I will start off by sayin no sorry it wasnt the Bonne I was driving, although I did find out they have a test n tune night on wednsdays (my days off yay!!). However I was driving some FWD Pontiacs a 2004 Grand Prix GTP Comp G and a 2004 GrandAm GT. I only got to run twice cause I was eliminated in the first round :( :( :( (i only lost by .063 seconds) the first run was in the GTP and I ran a [email protected] with the ac on I didnt get another chance to run the GTP because I got elimintaed in the first round. The fastest there only coaxed a 15.3 out of it though (with some work I bet we coulda gone down in the 15 flat area) the next round was in the G.A. and I ran a [email protected] the fastest ran on that car was a 16 flat but with some work I think high 15s are possible. The good thing I learned how to drag race so when I take MY car out there I will do a little better. However I really need to work on my reaction time cause I was seriosely snoozin at the light my best reaction time was a .610 but it was a pro tree so ill have to live and learn. For my very first official 1/4 mile run I think I did ok, but next time im bringin some REAL power!!!

On a side note the Bonne feels noticably stronger than the Comp G which tells me that all the mods ive done are doing EXACTLY what I wanted them too........now about that chip..............

OOPS I almost forgot........the reason I was racing. I was at a function held for Sears employees. About once a year we get to do something cool like this as a little perk of the job. Last year it was BFGoodrich kick Asphault tour......very fun.......now only if they would pay me a little more LOL!!!!

Bracket racing is fun
Now that you've caught the bug your rt will improve with every race.
The key is not to get jittery and red light
