Yea, Atco runs its NHRA points brackets on Saturdays, which i like. E-town runs on Sundays, which is typically a work day for me. Also, Atco (the track) is a more racer friendly track. I see etown as more of an entertainment venue. There are great racers there, but the facility itself is managed toward a different end, imo.
I leave my trailer and car in Atco... I take the train from Stamford to Phillie, then take the atlantic city line to Atco. Avoid all the traffic and get work done on the trip. then I walk to my storage, pick up my car and head to the track. It's a giant pain in the ***, but I love to race. "knock on wood", I'm in 5th place in the points at this point in the season, with 6 races to go before District Finals, which I'm gunning for.
The Hauler is for next year, when I hope to get my 66 f100 out here to race... this year, i'm just racing a street car to cure my itch.
This truck is a dream machine for me. So happy to have it. I took it to the Stamford Ford dealer and had them go over it. Told them to replace anything rubber that looked as if it was approaching the end of it's lifecycle. They called me a day later and said, "I'd like to charge you to change something, but there's just nothing on this truck that needs changed... hoses, belt, filter, brake lines, brake pads... everything looks great.... Where did you find this thing???"
So, Looks like I'm good for now... With my schedule and on the roads I'm driving, blowing a hose would be a major pain in the freek'n ars...
Thanks again Chris! I'll drop by that shop you mentioned and say hello next time i make it to E-town, which happens from time to time.
Rock on... Eric.
