"Flash light drags"

Well today at our local air port they had some drag races. They were flashlight drags with a girl pullin the trigger on the light and lights set up at the 1/8 mile to show the winner at the end. Last year I took the mustang up but figured I would take the stroke this year I was pleasantly surprised with how it ran had it on the Extreme street tune from Innovative and it did great so the list goes

05 Cummins Predator tuner with power puck and nitrous and stacks. Run 1 No NOS Killed him by a lot of lengths Run 2 he turned on the nos and I still beat him by about 3 lengths.

03-04 F-250 6.0 He said he had a intake ,exhaust, studs, and a studded tune from eric at innovative. It was leveled on 35's I beat him by maybe a foot. It was an awesome race and he was a pretty cool dude.

03-4 Dirty max. Guy said he had a banks six gun, intake, and exhaust. First run he ran on level 4 and I crushed him. He said he wanted to turn his box up and go again so. Run 2 Same result but it was closer probably 3 lengths

07 Civic SI haha Killed it , kid broke em loose off the line and it was all she wrote.

01 Mustang GT with full bolt ons and gears. I killed it bad but he said it wouldnt shift out of first (auto)

6.0L GTO stick with intake and exhaust. This was my only loss of the day, the girl hit the light before I had the turbo spooled and the smoke cleared out I bogged but still had two lengths on him but he reeled me in and finished me off.

99-04 Mustang 4.6 5spd with intake exhaust cam gears etc. He said he runs a 13.1 consistant I got a great launch and pulled a bunch of lengths on him and ended up beating him by about a foot. If it was 1/8 mile plus 20ft he would have had me.

So all in all it was a great day I didnt break anything so I am happy. there were two trucks there I didnt run one was a 08 6.4 Stroke with the Spartan 250 tune and exhaust. He said he beat the other 6.0 by a few lengths but we didnt get to go.
also there was a guy with a red cummins with a big single, injectors, water meth etc. It was a VP44 truck but he said low to mid 11's are we he runs. I saw it take out a new Z06 and a number of other fast cars so I decided to sit our race out Haha Sorry for such a long post

Yeah I would say he is in his late 50's It was red with a grey bottom. Really nice and clean truck as well as fast.

Smoke, do you ever run around down in altoona with your truck around plank rd? Maybe with another guy in a red cummins with bull haulers?
