Racing at Newton speedway.

Last sunday went to Newton speedway for races. Running the F250 and my first race of the day was a matchup you just don't ever expect to see on a drag strip

Obviously the truck is my F250 PSD, a lot of people are getting more and more used to seeing diesels drag racing but still a little bit of a novelty. But the car in the other lane is believe it or not a BENTLEY.

Roger I would love to claim that I did in fact win but alas the twin turbo'd V8 in a vehicle that weighs half what my truck does got me (although I did hold him off past the 330ft line)

But my times were respectable, here is the times

I was just kidding with you anyway though Rob, it takes much more to get going in a truck like that than a little made to race car... Kind of like trying to race a car against a bike, big disadvantage to the car...

Oh yeah I know Roger, but you know that big ole truck surprises a lot of cars (I can beat most stock vehicles like mustangs and camaro's etc) and I just flat out beat the day lights out of almost everything except all out drag cars in the 60ft times. You know how many people are suprised by a 7200lb 4x4 diesel doing 60ft in under 2 seconds.

And Matt I am sure we can get a chance when it slows down to gtg.
