Car Craft Summer Nationals and Midnight Drags at Beech Bend

15 posts in this topic

Ok, no excuses this time, my tank is done as soon as I weld on the drain tonight.  I'm going to head up to Beech Bend Saturday afternoon for the Midnight drags.

I might not even qualify, but I doubt there will be 64 cars there faster than mid 10's.  It will be a good late night test and tune regardless.

I was going to go, but it is going to be H-O-T.

And sunny.   So it's a good time to set fire to your freckles. :D

It was hot.  99* when I got there at 4:30.  DA was 3300-2700'.  I ran a couple 11.1's and an 11.08.  Not impressive.  I'm not sure that's all due to the heat, but it's possible.  I qualified 26 of 34 cars and ahead of Larry Dixon. :D

Found it...

Density Altitude: 2485 feet
Relative Density: 92.93 %

Drag Times says my corrected ET is:

Stock and Mildly Modified Naturally Aspirated Engines
12.741 @ 112.285 MPH

I find that hard to believe, though.

I read about qualifying, so do you have any elimination results by now? :)

They only ran the quick 16 in eliminations.  I didn't make that group.  The silver crown vic above would have, but he didn't have a cage so they booted him out the group.
