She had her GN in the low 9s today while carrying the Turbo Buick torch for the rest of us. I am a Huge Lisa fan and you should be to, if you knew half of what she has done for this turbo Buick family. Good luck Lisa.
Met Lisa today rocking her WE4 down Atco's 1/4 mile @ Drag Week. I had a good interview with her while she was wrapping up for the day. I plan to feature the spot in my upcoming Atco Drag Week video. She was super cool and look forward to seeing some more racing from her! I'll make sure to share when it's ready. Go Lisa!!!!
Yea.......she is sweet alright...... but remember.........she's got a reputation to uphold...... she prefers the term BADASS!!! Way to go Lisa!! I'm very proud of you!!! Glad all that hard work, sweat & tears have paid off!! You deserve it!!
Here's the link to my video that just went LIVE on my channel with Lisa's spotlight. Do me a favor and SUBSCRIBE if you haven't already, i appreciate your support. I'm going to continue to bring you that Buick and G Body content and don't want you to miss out. Thanks!
WOW - What an amazing Drag Week - this is my fourth year doing this race, and it is no easy task! The past few years have given me a run for my money but I couldn't let it beat me, so I pushed thru and focused on making this car right! The car did its job, we turned everything up on the final day but the transmission was worn the hell out! This transmission has over 4,000 miles on it between racing and driving, time to tear it down and freshen it up!
My two goals were #1 to finish this race and #2 finish with an 8 second average. One out of two isn't bad. When I look back on how many things could have gone wrong I feel very fortunate to have finished this race with a 9.14 average. I am still debating on if I will go back and strive for that 8 second average. I am broke and exhausted at the moment! LOL
We had some minor issues on day 2, we checked the log, I changed the spark plugs and we had our best pass of the week 9.07 at Cecil. The car was flawless on the street driving even thru bad traffic, fast paced highways with heat in the upper 90's. I can't thank my co-pilots (Billy Fischer and Paul Diges) enough for the great directions, keeping us on route and finding enough E85 for the driving and racing.
Special Thank you..........
