WooooHooooo.....Congrats Ward. Heck of a pass AND sixty foot. If anybody deserves that, it is Ward !!!! :thumb:
p.s. Chad ...... the fastest Roe car is Utahviper. 148+ MPH no nitrous. Ward has the quickest in the land. I would like to say Ward has the quickest in the land until next weekend...BUT, I don't know if I can better that ET. Hell, I give up /images/graemlins/surrender I guess it's time Mr. Greg Good works his head magic for me.
The whole and entire reason of going to the track this night was to promote the V-10 Nationals race up coming this weekend. I never run my car 2 weeks before a race to insure that I have no breakage. Mission was accomplished, no breakage and one Hell of a job promoting our V-10 Nationals. Announcements were made in front of 5,000-6,000 race fans to come back next weekend to see us run.
A little about the run and events prior to it. Just before my and Lee Saunders run was, the pro mods .....which I was only able to watch part. Lee and myself watched a door slammer run a 6.19 pass and many other mid 6 and 7 second passes.
Next to run was the 3 exhibition runs: first to run was a jet rail ran a 5 second pass at over 300 miles per hour. Fans were revived to the guard rails from watching pro mods and then a 300mph pass by a girl driving the jet rail.
Next to run was a jet semi....during the jet heat ups flames were so long it burned flags 20-25 feet in the air. It was very impressive although we were adjacent to staging lanes because we next exhibition race. I was slightly concern this jet could melt my Viper. I could not see what it ran because I was strapped into the Viper with helmet on, but from the roar of the crowd it was impressive.
Holy shit the pressure was on for me and Lee(BTR) Saunders to fallow all of this and make a good pass to impress the crowd that was glue to the rails. It would be a "one shoot wonder" for me and Lee ...... no second passes. Then BANG beyond my wildest dreams a record breaking pass, the rest is history!
I guess this open the can of worms regarding Roe VS Paxton.
I would like to thank Lee Saunders for driving from Lakeland to race his Viper and help us promote the V-10 Nationals.
It was a hoot to run in front of crowd like this and break personal and world Roe records, it gives you an incredible feeling.
