    Back at the track again

    After 6 weeks of rest and recovery i returned to the track. As a spectator it was good to smell the smoke and hear the peeling tires. Here are some pictures from the Northern Virginia Mustang Club private track rental.

    Mark you will find the SB easier to keep clean. And probably faster . In the fall I too will be back at the track myself working on going at least a 4 tenths lower et. Best of luck with your drivetrain swap.
