    So my dad and I went to Bandimere speedway last night, for an afterhours networking event. There were all kinds of older cars such as Nova's, Chevelle's, 68 Camaro's, etc that were running 11's all over the place. They had a few dragsters out, and the fastest one that I saw ran about a 7.2 at 187.xx mph. Anyways, we got to put our names in a hat to see if we get a chance to race against eachother in 8 Z28's. Turns out, there were only 8 people who signed up that didn't drink, so we all got to do it. We all were racing just against eachother, so there were 4 original races, and the winners of those raced the winners of the others, and so on. I ended up winning out of everyone. There was a preliminary run, so we could just get used to it, and then 3 actual runs. We did "Pro Race" or something like that, so all the yellows just lit up, then the green. So here are my times in the automatic Z28.

    R/T: .805
    60': 2.422
    330: 6.475
    1/8: 9.730
    MPH: 76.47
    1000: 12.488
    1/4: 14.819
    MPH: 97.05

    1st Run
    R/T: .384
    60': 2.828
    330: 6.909
    1/8: 10.225
    MPH: 75.56
    1000: 13.002
    1/4: 15.348
    MPH: 96.42

    2nd Run
    R/T: .444
    60': 2.466
    330: 6.514
    1/8: 9.786
    MPH: 75.17
    1000: 12.544
    1/4: 14.878
    MPH: 96.97

    3rd Run
    R/T: .304
    60': 2.436
    330: 6.502
    1/8: 9.771
    MPH: 76.06
    1000: 12.540
    1/4: 14.888
    MPH: 96.24

    It was a fun learning experience, hopefully I can get some pictures up.
