Well.. it was an eventful night, in more than one way. The weather was threatening rain all night long. Thunder and lightning off in the distance over and over. Since all of that was happening, the humidity/weather running off a lot of people and a major race happening elsewhere (I was told)... I elected to call off the KODFWS and the brackets. There was danger of rain, and of course, it would have caused us to NOT finish anything we would have started. Not to mention the possibility of damage to some rather expensive timing equipment...so, long story short, if you weren't there and were wondering about the KODFWS and bracket outcome - there was niether.
Next, There was a LOT of street-tired cars this time around. That, coupled with only a few "race tired" cars.. made for tricky track conditions. Some of the higher powered cars struggled to make a decent pass....regardless of how many times it was sprayed and drug. (when we first got there, it was STICKY!!)
All in all, it still ended up bieng a wierd night....
We had a non-member (or so I think at least).. do some 360's (V8 Datsun) at the top of the track, and barely nudged the wall from what I saw, only to be able to make future passes...I am sure he had to change his undies.
Next, we had cleto-chingon (?) have a not-so-fortunate accident. The car swayed from 200' out, towards the centerline (right lane), got loose and ended up nailing the wall pretty good. The car, to me, appears to be a total loss (buckled roof, completely flattened one side of the car) - luckily, he walked away - I'm sure he'll be feeling it tomorrow. Glad you're ok dude.
Then we had, what I was told to be a sucker punch "fight" - I heard some skinny dude sucker punched a much "bigger" dude. If that was a member, you might as well not come back. Someone will dime you out. We don't need that shit around when we're there trying to have a good time.
One of the better hightlights, the dirt track or someone in the immediate vicinity, put on a hell of a good fireworks show - Most impressive for a "small town" type community. They rivaled most of the shows I've seen in downtown FTW.
- Ryan, got home with no broken parts!
- "street lethal" and "bad03cobra" had the most impressive backfire honors.
- red viper - most passes in a single night
- Billy, again, with the best looking LX I've seen in a while (the black one, bogart wheels etc)
- 1fastvipper rolling up in true balla status with the big rig
Obviously, it goes without saying, a BIG thanks to thew crew and staff of TXR for making this all happen and go as smoothly has possible!
I'm sure there's something I am forgetting..
