    Bakersfield Race

    Vinny,

    We have not heard from you in awhile. I was wondering how you and your brother did at the race in Bakersfield last week?

    Tom,

    Well, got two runs Thursday in Test and Tune and then went into the jackpot with potential 6k to win. They run first round Thursday night and finish Friday since there are 375 cars in it. I won first round and on Friday we had rain, lightning, and hail so it was canceled. The first round winners split it so I go $90. The Big Race Sunday I went out with 19 cars left and Lee went out with 10 left. Both of us to the same guy and both sleeping at the light. Was getting .030 lights all weekend and lost my concentration and did a .122 light. Ugggghhhh. Won $50 in that one. Still had fun and was running 11.93 at 113 mph.

    Tom, Tomorrow night is trophy night at Sac first 250 get commenerative glasses. Not sure if I am going but may be pursuaded.

    Sounds like you did pretty well. I would have been happy with that. I would like to get involved with the points races next year. I already told my girlfriend I am going to and that she needs to deal with it...lol. Do you get points for the street class or is sportsman the first real points class? I do not think that I will be able to make it tonight. I hurt my leg this weekend and it is still pretty sore.

    yeah, i decided not to go tonight because of the wind. Sportsman is the first points class. They said the end of november or in december they will have the schedule up. The first race is usually New Years Day. The finals are in Las Vegas this year. The street/throphy class that the have is not involved in the points race.

    Well I will have to see if I get a pay raise this year...lol. They only race once a month right? Of course all my military stuff will probably fall on race weekends.
