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: 9.786

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