Default Big Yellows day at the track!

What does a guy with a truck do when the Truck Fest comes to town?



He takes his baby to the track to see what she's got of course!


Long lines of trucks at 7:30 am already. 623 trucks was the total from what I hear




Picking out a good pit spot for the mighty Ram was very important.




Just Chillin before I get to put in some time trials



This truck runs low 10's at about 130mph. Hot damn thats fast!




A sampling of anything and eveything that ran during the day.




If you have ever wondered why I bought a yellow truck then this picture says it all.




This is me lined up for my second time trial. I ran a 17.822 at 79.43 mph on the first.




"Imma givin her all shes got captn"




hummm...not bad. I ran about a tenth faster the first go round.




Now its time for the real deal...ELIMINATIONS!!! The temp was cooling off and there was a slight tail wind so I pick 17.50 as my dial in. I was hoping to run a 17.6xxx and I added some slight breathing room.




I'm lined up next to a suv with a supercharged 427 and has a dial in of 12.90! :scared: Holy five second head start.



I feel like I hit a good light which turned out to be a .258 for those keeping track at home. It's hooking up nicely but I see him gaining on me fast.




ARE YOU KIDDING ME?!?! This guy runs a 12.91 on a 12.90! And to make things worse he cuts a light of .013, nearly purfect! I'd been watching hillbilly rednecks break out and run 2 seconds slower then there dial in time and my first round has to be against MR PURFECT?! I really thought I had a chance to do well because I only had 2 tenths between my fastest and slowest run of the day. Oh well, It was a great day and loads of fun to be out on the track.

Thanks for sharing that! I have been going to the local drags here watching the Rams eat Fords and Chevys for dinner! I am so tempted to run Blue to see what she can do but am chicken! I enjoyed your thread, thanks!!

Still sounds like you had a fun day . Not real impressed with the SRT8 jeep only running a 12.90 . Blown stroker motor , I wouldn't be happy .

Now that sounds like a fun day, I have not been to the track in years.

Also why does the ram that you are racing on your second trial have his tow mirrors out? I thought that you want to get every ounce of an advantage possible. It will have less wind drag if they are in.

As my dad was watching he was thinking that the SRT8 was going to break out. Only .02 from doing so. It's hard to fathom how little time that is for him to win or lose a race.

Yep...I knocked about a tenth off each time I ran down the track.

While I am certainly no chicken, I'll admit the heart was pumping big time while those yellow lights came down the tree.

A stock suv running in the 12s. I'll take one please.

True but really with this kind of racing it doesn't really matter how fast you go but can you go excatly the same speed every time. You should have seen some of the other guys. They still had coolers and all kinds of junk in the backs of there trucks.
