Local Track Opening 5/23 finally!!
« on: May 22, 2020, 01:41:32 am »
National Trails in Hebron Ohio is finally allowed to open. They are only allowing 100 cars each weekend day and they had online purchasing open at 7pm today to the first hundred that clicked the button. I was sitting there at 6:59 clicking the refresh button like mad and ended up scoring one of the hundred tickets.

It got me excited and started watching videos from last year's trips to the track.

The entire way thru the staging lanes I was trying to count cars and kept coming up with numbers that put this guy against me. All the way up to the very last spot I thought for sure there was no way I was going to race him. I figured he would get a bye run, but then they waved both of us thru. I couldn't see thru his helmet, but I'm sure he was afraid.



To put it in perspective how close the race was, his trap speed was around 88 if I remember right.
Firestorm hpfp, catted downpipes, Corsa catback, 160 degree thermostat, 3 bar map, Gearhead E30 tune, Gearhead intercooler and upgraded trans mounts.

Nice! 11ís of bust!

Tracks around here are still private rentals only! But if they are limiting the amount of cars, maybe the staging lanes wonít be packed?

Felt slightly out of place today. Only 100 racers were allowed in and I did not see a single other person that drove their car in the first two hours I was there. Literally every single other car was brought in on a trailer. LOL!

Best pass of day was 12.040, I think worst was 12.1 something. Got lots of runs in but it was a very warm day. DA was 2500. I had run a 12.04 full weight with dragy last week when the temps were in the 40's, today I had the passenger seat and rear seats removed. Also pulled in with half a tank of gas. Since there were only 100 racers I figured I would be able to get a lot of pulls so I wanted to make sure I had plenty of gas. Kinda paranoid about having it be too low and hanging an injector open.

Here's a video of one of the trailer cars smoking me.
