NO NEWS IS GOOD NEWS
Mar 8, 2014
I try not to spend too much time complaining about the weather. It just gets old out here in Seattle, especially when 44 degrees and raining sounds down right balmy to most of the country. I've been watching drag racing on TV so you know I'm ready for our season to start already. We get started in May this year at the Stock/Super Stock race at Pacific Raceway Saturday May 10. The following weekend we'll open our NHRA season at the Spokane Divisional. It's going to be another year of NHRA drag racing action!
Can you believe this year is the twentieth since we started racing? I made a commemorative teeshirt. Email me if you want one!
HAPPY NEW YEAR!

Now that it's over, I can say that 2013 wasn't really that great and I'm glad that it's in the books. The days are already getting longer and 2014 is in progress, baby! Wagons of Steel has some plans for the year. I've figured out our NHRA drag racing schedule, I'll post it soon but here are the highlights. We're planning on running the Savoy in the Division 6 points race and we're going to pull down to Sonoma for the National event on the last weekend of July before bouncing back up to Seattle the next weekend for the NW Nats. We'll be at Bremerton Raceway and Pacific Raceway bracket racing when we can.
The Mighty Josephine is due to get some custom Caltrac leaf springs. Depending on how that goes she could get a massive horsepower injection. The Savoy was running great when we put her away. Due to NHRA rule changes the high compression version is now the hot option so we're resurrecting ours. Maybe we'll get that together sooner than later. Our low compression bullet is a super consistent bracket monster and it runs well under the index but not enough for some of the hot rods running in "C/SA" these days. It's only money!
I just made two new tee shirt designs. One features the Savoy, the other has Troy's Super Stocker. If you want to be the first kid on your block to sport one send me twenty bucks for a tee or thirty for a hoody along with ten bucks for shipping. Email me firstname.lastname@example.org.
