“There was a lot of people on the starting line watching so I didn’t want to make a mistake or screw up. It was really cool. All the NHRA pro teams were at Lucas Oil Raceway testing too. We had a lot of people coming over and checking the car out all day. The butterflies were going crazy in my stomach as I pulled up to do my burnout. I settled down a little after that. I got excited and lit both bulbs, but I took a couple deep breaths and went down the track. I drifted out of the groove a bit on the first run. The next hit we had the drive shaft coupler back off and I felt it hit the bottom of the seat so I shut it off and we serviced it. What a thrill it was. I was very excited and amped up” – Allan Middendorf
