Good chance I'm out this week. Got a meeting after work Wednesday and I'll probably hold out for next week and hope the weather holds off.

Well, it was a short outing. As I was about to make my 4th time run, the starter issue reared its ugly head again. I was two cars away from pulling on track and it wouldn't start. Jim Curtis used the quad to tow me over to the pit side. Pool-store Mike with the '68 Olds helped me get my tires and jack from the pits and over to my car. I put my header caps back on, and tried starting it, and it fired up. Once it started, I wasn't turning it off. Threw my street tires and jack in the trunk and drove home on my drag radials. A disappointing end.

In time runs, I had two .00x red lights and there was less than 15 cars in Animal. Those two runs were 12.45 and 12.47. Could've been a good night.. I may run a secondary starter trigger wire so I can run next week and then go through the factory wiring more thoroughly over the winter.
