Drag Racing

Well, it was a fantastic weekend in Arizona. Beautiful warm days around 85. Went to the largest car show in Tucson, put on by the Rotary Club and they know how to do a show.
Over 400 cars. I won 3rd place in the category 1959-1965 modified cars. Very nice plaque.
Then today, took the car to Tucson Dragway. Finally got to run the car and it did great. It ran a 13.53 @ 106.44 with street tires. I now know the car will run in mid to low 12's with slicks. Could not hold any traction through 1st and 2nd gear.
It was a blast and now I will purchase slicks and do it again. We are leaving Arizona Friday to come home. Will really miss the sun, but anxious to be back home. See you soon. Larry
