We took our SRT with Arrington 426 Stroker to the track today for the first time. Normally the track is 1/4 mi, but the wind was 30 - 40 mph today so we ran 1/8th mile. I made 4 passes and my husband made 4 passes. I have the the best runs of the day.

Thompson Raceway Park, Thompson, Oh temp 50*, humidity 94%, DA 1517

We were using our old drag radials 275/50R17 on 17x8 American Racing Rogues.

Getting M&H 325/45R17 mounted on 17X10 Weld Wheels tomorrow.

My PB and car's PB:

1.74 60ft
5.09 330ft
7.82 1/8 ET
90.15 1/8 MPH

Second best pass:

Sounds like you had a good time Bobbi.

Not sure how accurate these are, but around 12.2.

1/8th to 1/4 Conversion Table.

I think for your first time out considering the conditions you did great.

Thompson is not very good for track prep on their T&T days, plus all the water they have seeping out is another factor.

I think once you get a good day with your new tires you will easily go into the 11's. I am looking forward to seeing it.

Ok guys, I went 11.96 @ 115.54 at Virginia Motorsports Park on Friday. Most of my passes were 12.20 to 12.30, because they were hot laps. With the 1 hr cool down I ran the 11.96 pass. Also had a 14.30 @ 111.0 pass. Tires broke loose, my husband said there was more smoke than when I did my burnout. I'll post my slip later today for the 11 SECOND CLUB.
