This is the 2012 video from multiple angles don't miss the last few minutes.
I hope you will enjoy it.
We had 16 cars registered to race and I have not counted the total that showed up. It was hot but we had a great time.

Rich, how do you like those traction bars? I saw the video of the challenger on youtube. Looked good coming off the line, no tire hop.

Dan,
I'll let you know more when I hit them hard. The 60' times were off easy but still 2.0s. I expect to be quicker than that when I get a chance to open it up a little bit. Those passes were the first and only that I have made so far and I didn’t push it.
I had questions on them from other brand x racers that looked them over closely. We missed you at the May race. Thanks Dan for your help on the bars I'll send you some pictures someday, but maybe you can see them in person? The day the Challenger made the runs Sandy who runs the track said something about the stands at this track coming from Edgewater. Maybe I sat in them 50 years ago!

It looks like fun because it is and you should come down. You wouldn’t be the first Canadian to show up since Peter and Marna Sant have come and raced with us already. They couldn't make it this year.
