First real drag race on strip

Ok I haven't posted in awhile! Been busy, I got a friend that has a reg cab F250 4x4 6.0L that he races competively, he has elite stage II injectors, larger turbo, aftermarket intake, MBRP 4" turbo back, nitros and SCT Livewire, he runs in the 7.3 in the 1/8th. He finally talked me into racing my truck, well I came unprepared but did it anyways, had bout 500-750lbs of tools and misc crap in the back, full of fuel. First race I ran my aggressive street, from Matt, with a rider in the truck against an '90ish integra with spray and ran a 9.5 he couldn't keep up at all. 2nd race I loaded the ultimate compition tune, from Matt aswell, ran against a 2000 Firebird that has extras that runs in the low 8's, needless to say he beat me by 1 1/2 to 2 lenghts, I ran a 9.3 and had a .678 reaction time he had a .264 react. My third race was with the same tune against a new 350hp GTO, he got a .1078 reaction time me a .465 react and stayed with him but he got me by a nose .203 diff, I ran a 9.4. Road in my buddy's truck and let me tell ya that damn thing f@#$ fly's pinned me back in the seat like a down hill rollacoaster ride. Huge difference! Thought I'd share this with ya'll.
