Back to mile racing !

The crew for this race consisted of Crew chief Sharon Hand, Steve Legendre, Jim Fox, Mark Dodson and Dick Boxell, with additional help from Chuck Stuart and Ron Raymond

Chris had two complete powerplants ready for action, with Patton in the bike,

Saturday Q2

Saturday morning we set up the pit area and ready the bike ,we fire the bike to check for operation of the bike and a fuel leak shows up and as we get it repaired we hear Top Fuel running down track on the Q2 passes.

Saturday Q 3 , Left Lane

We ready the bike again and tow up to the staging lanes. Sharon runs the starter while Fox runs the squirter to start the bike and it refuses to fire although it ran fine 2-1/2 hours before Do some investigating after we get the bike back change the points box , no change, we then change the Mag , turn the bike over WE HAVE SPARK! .

Sunday E1 , Right Lane

Due to the graciousness of all the other Top Fuel competitors Dave Vantine , Mitch Brown , Sam Wills , Walter Halonski , Tadashi Reggie Saitou and Don Johnson and their teams , and big thanks to Jay Regan and ManCup, we are placed on the ladder in 6th position

We are scheduled to run Dave Vantine first round.

We ready the bike for todays elimination runs and tow up to the staging lanes. Sharon runs the starter while Fox runs the squirter,start the bike, Chris rolls through the waterbox, Fox Wipes the front tire and Chris does his burnout.

Myself and the drafted Ron Raymond start to push the bike back with the direction from Fox and Chuck Stuart, we run out of gas pushing back and Jim Fox grabs the wheelie bar and we finally get the bike back so Chris can stage the bike.

Chris lines up Prestages , Sharon turns on the computer , Chris stages, the lights flash , the bike get about 60 ft out and I see a huge cloud of clutch dust and the bike runs down the track at a good clip but on the losing end of the race.

Our 6.227 @215.75 vs Daves 5.839@242.02
