I've been spending some time and money getting ready for the 2014 season lately. Our first race will be at Spokane on May 16-18. We pulled the Savoy out of the trailer and warmed her up. Everything seems just like when we put her away so she gets an oil change and maybe some plugs and we're ready to race. The big news around here is that I finally got around to buying a new tow rig. We've been borrowing them for the past year or so from a variety of gracious friends and relations and that was starting to get old. So I went to Dave Barcelone's Truck Town, where I originally purchased my enclosed trailer, and bought a 2004 Ford F350 4X4 dually pick up truck. It's as big as an aircraft carrier and has 560 foot pounds of torque at 2000 rpm, enough to tow anything I have and then some.

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!
