Default first time at the track

local grand prix club held a track meet yesterday. i wasn't prepair to run, my original plan was to meet up with 03pacerss he was in town for the gp meet. me and him were making an arrangement to meet up cause i was buying the trunk carpet liner from him. after the pick up he told me about the track and i thought why not i'll give a shot. like i said i wasn't prepair for the track event yet anyway. i was running with my street tires and rim "the bullet". i made 3 passes my best was 13.699 @103. i was hoping to hit 12's, but that didn't happened. i had hard time hooking and peeling out alot. my R/T and 60 ft hurt me. oh well now that i had first taste of the track and i think i'm hooked...LOL. i'm going back again this time with SLICK!!!!!

on the slip ticket on the left side #81
