    We left my house at 4:30 in the mourning and got to Joilet about 9:00. I was their all day long untill about 4:30. I had my ford racing hat signed by John Force! Even better He asked my if he has met me before I was like yeah when I was two years old you picked my up because your funny car scared me enough to make me cry! lol he didn't remember but really I don't blame him I've probably seen him like 15 times in my life So we had a good discussion about all the races I've been too and seen him win about 75% of the time! lol If anyones wondering how I manigied to talk to him for this long he went out in the first round so he was on fan duty all day. But it was a blast the finial round I missed top fuel but funny car was capps,and burnstien so I had to see that sadly though capps won.

    My GF came with and The cars scared the crap outa her! She asked all kinds of Questions and made me realize all the things I know about fuel cars and drag racing, that we all pick up unconstionsly. But, I just wanted to share my fun with you all and I'm going to work know so later.

    Yeah we did. I also Came within like 2 sec of winning a bunch a free apperal form the nitro mall but I got beat by the last competitor. The competition was to tear down a mock up engine and find the two flags one was in the the valve cover and the other was in the number five cylinder. I got a time of 41 sec on the tear down and the guy that beat me got a 39 obviously.

    But oh well I had fun.
