“We headed to Mt Vernon Illinois to test it in Benton and we got rained out there and decided to drive over to Cordova. We placed a call to our good friends at Lagana Racing and they helped get us into the track to test during the World Series of Drag Racing. I had never been to the track before. It is a beautiful establishment.
We made three test hits on Saturday. We made a test to 400 foot and I shut it off and the numbers showed it really good. Then I drove it to the eighth and we ran a high 3.70. And at about 11:00 that night, we decided to make a full pull down the quarter mile and it went 3.70 at 214 to the eighth so it was on a run. About 900 feet it drifted out of the groove I fought it back and I looked down a quarter of the windshield and noticed what I thought was fuel or oil, and actually it was condensation coming off the blower, so I lifted with everything being brand new and I didn’t want to hurt any parts. So over all it was a good weekend. I got a lot of people who helped me get to this point so I didn’t want to screw it up.
Ending up at Cordova turned out to be a blessing in disguise. The track prep was perfection and the staff was great. The American Outlaw is really going to turn into something.”
