Default first win

the other day one of my friends who owns a 1998 gtp asked me if i wanted to race and i thought why not. i have a 2004 dale jr. sc monte btw. anywas he put a cold air system in his car and thought he would smoke me so we bet 20 bucks on the race..we did a roll start at 20 and did about 1/8 of a mile and i was already a car length and a half ahead of him! so i slowed down and took my 20 bucks and put it in my tank

Nice kill. IIRC the grand prixs are slightly heavier than the montes so stock for stock the montes should come out ahead.

$20 for gas is good, but you're running 93? Convince him it was a close race and race again for a full tank of gas to the winner...

89 is a waste of time. u pay a dime extra for 2 octane. prem is 20 cents more for 6 octane usually. shell has 94. i say if ur not satisfied with 87 reggie gas go prem or go walk.
