    The Best of Times, The Worst of Times....

    The best of times:

    New best for the car (and a new record to boot):

    9.62 @ 140.12 (with blower and nitrous)

    10.02 @ 135.85 (blower only)


    We had a great time and got to see a lot of old friends, including Chris Woods, the drivier of Big John's Big Dawg winning Impala. I have known Chris for years, been to the track with him many times and enjoyed the rivalry with him this year.

    A big thanks goees to all the folks who worked hard to put on the highlight event of the year, and all the friends we got to see and chat with.

    Of course, I appreciate Jeff, Brandon and Dave, as well as all of the other guys from our shop who work hard on the car and keepp a good sense of humor about it.



    The worst of times:

    The blower slung more belts off the car than we have in years and did collateral damage everytime we did (trans lines, crank sensor, trans brake wiring)

    Unfortunately we just could not pull the stars into alignment this year and get the car to do what it needed to do -- be consistent.

    We will see where we go from here.....

    Good Lawd that's movin'!
    You said you had fun, that's what it's all about. I don't have the nicest or fastest Marauder, but going to Marauder meets is good enough for me, it's about the cars and the people. Well, and some beer thrown in.
    Did anyone take any pics for us non-attenders to slobber over?

    We are in Nashville on the 4 million mile ride. Pictures on Monday. Had a great time watchong your team Marty. A lot of other guys who raced need to chime in on this thread. A lot of things happened and played out today. It was great to see everyone again and meet some new faces. Some of you Southern boys are getting pretty good!

    I know Dennis had a good run, went too fast and got booted for no roll bar. I assume he's on the road back home, I didn't see him after the event.

    Steve had a bad day, fuel system quit before he even got it off the trailer.

    John's Impala ran solidly in the 8's, so we've got our work cut out for us to take the Big Dog trophy back.

    Slinging the belts is the pits seem to cost more money everytime you do it. On my stangs with centri blowers it seemed that once I got it right that belt would last 20,xxx but 3-4 by that time is costly! Great times marty sounds like you all had fun

    This was indeed a great event. Even tho i did not race i am glad i made the trip. It was good seeing some old faces and meeting new ones. It was great to see the Mo's Speed shop special live and in living color and to witness tne new record times. Props go out to Marty and his crew getting the car ready for the event and repairs as needed.
    DR you're going to have to break down and get that roll cage.

    Cograts to all who had successful runs and hope the times met your expectations.

    Thanks go to all who made this event possible and a success.

    Safe trip home all.

    P.s. Brian, was that your Whipple outside the tee shirt gate. Sweet....

    Thanks for coming, it's worth the trip for the socializing and spectating even if you don't race.

    That was it, the nastiest car on the grounds. I left Friday morning heading down there in the rain, after just cleaning it up. I was too disgusted and tired to clean it up again after the drive. At least it looks good under the hood!

    Glad you braved the rain. That was the first Whippled Marauder i've seen in all the events attended.

    Hope you don't have Deja vu on the trip home.

    A big congataulation goes out to Levi, who placed runner up in the "D" class. Now this is a guy who had never run bracket racing but was just consistent all day long. Find a good place for your trophy!! Russ ran a personal best and got the trophy for the most runs of the day. TAF had his awesome car there that is just one of the nice's MM I have seen.
    With the help of my personal race coach. thank you Pops, I had my personal best today, 12.178 @112.63, 60 of 1.810. I am still learning.
    It was a great day with a lot of great racing and people. Hope everyone makes it home safe.
