I went to the drags at Atlanta Dragway Commerce, Ga. for Night of Fire.
Last race there ever and no plans to rebuild. NHRA sold it to a developer who plans to turn it into condos and parking.

I was there with a customer helping tune his new engine combo, didn't go so well.

There was only one Sporty there, wasn't me.
He stalled the engine twice and was eliminated from competition. I took pics but they were washed out with sun.

Last race for the year. Out in the first round but didn’t get beat.. I lost on a breakout.
Let’s me know the bike is better and the rider needs work. I’m still struggling on the hit
More consistent but still slow. Did my best no bar time @ 10.93 off the throttle and getting
better on the tree. My .023 should have killed his .2 but I lost on inexperience. 123 mph
vs 154 mph. I tried but just couldn’t judge it. Lifted to late. Lol. No time like seat time.

I think I really like that “attitude” stance, he’ll do well especially with you as his mentor! Nice to share the passion!
