1988 LX 5.0 Hatchback. Car presently has 115K miles on a slightly modified engine. Engine mods include a port-matched upper and lower intake, port matched and ported heads, "F" cam, Mass Air conversion, deleted smog pump, Mac Shorty headers, Dynomax H pipe, Dynomax cat back exhaust. The car has a five speed transmission, 2.73:1 rear end. The car hasn't been to the strip since the engine mods, and I'd like to change to 3.73 gears first to take advantage of the high-winding cam. Of course I could use a 65mm throttle body, a 75mm mass air meter, 24lb injectors, etc etc....
13.97 (Street Tires) Beat that with 2.73 Gears!!
Fastest MPH: 99.50
Best Reaction Time in Competition: .502
This is a shot of me after I got my first trophy. Talk about a happy guy!

1st Place: (1) Keystone Raceway 5/9/99
2nd Place: (2) National Trail Raceway 6/98, 8/19/98
3rd Place: (1) Keystone Raceway Summer 1999
4th Place: (1) Keystone Raceway Summer 1999
Bike record: 11.45 at 127 MPH. WOW Somebody go back to the line and bring my brain up here....
I wasn't able to race my bike that much last year, but I did manage to win some cash and take 4th place on a hot summer day. Thank goodness for company pickup trucks with air conditioning!
Ah yes, the $1500 car that started it all back in '95....
It's funny, but this is the only photograph (other than the National Trail professional shots) that I have of me on the track. Of course there are hours of video, but this is the only pic. I guess I'll have to get some taken instead of more video.
