It's a PINKS ALL OUT Weekend!

Jul 18, 2010

Hi everyone *waves* Hope you all had a great weekend!!! I had a FABULOUS weekend!!! One of the guys I work with got to run for the hit show PINKS ALL OUT this weekend, and the hubs and i got to go! Hubs was his "pit crew mechanic". And we totally had a blast! ( click on pics for a closer look )

Topeka , Kansas

We hit the road friday morning, for the short 2 hour drive to Topeka , Kansas . We got there shortly after 11am, and let me tell ya it was HAWT!

We unloaded the car and set up the tent, and sat around for a bit, waiting for Bruces turn for spec checks. they started around noon , running 25 a half hour. we were # 355 o.O


Classes
A - 12.50 - 12.99
B - 12.00 - 12.49
C - 11.50 - 11.99
D - 11.00 - 11.49
E - 10.50 - 10.99
F - 10.00 - 10.49
G - 9.50 - 9.99
H - 9.00 - 9.49
I - 8.01 - 8.99
J - 8.0 - and FASTER




Line up for the 2 test runs on friday. Bruce was in class A which was 12.50 - 12.99

Bruce got through the first test run with a 12.78 which was a little slow for him, due to some problems. Unfortunatly we had major malfunctions with the starter and didn't get to run the 2nd test run.


We had 1 hour to rush back to where we were parked to grab the truck to tow bruce back to our space, AND make it to the parts store before they closed so my hubs could get the parts to fix the car.



Day #2 , Race day line up!


YAY!!! Hubs and Bruce got the car fixed friday night. So Bruce got to run!!!


Double checking everything on the car, keeping it cool before the races actually started.


Everyone decided i needed to be in atleast one of the pics since i was behind the camera for all the photos. So here is my Hubs and Me waiting for the races to start.

Rich chatting with all the drivers, making sure they all understand the rules, and how everything works. You know the DO NOT DO's that will get ya disqualified

And then there is Ken. You gotta love Ken Herring from Past - Time

First qualifing run 12.48 woooo hooooo

Burn off on the 2nd qualifing run....


And he's going.........


2nd run on the "Arm Drop" run 12.51 YAY!!!

The drivers all gathered around to chat with Rich after everyone finished with their 2nd race. This was where they announced the group of 32 who would actually make the finals. and it was the low 11's group :0(
But thats ok, we still had a wonderful weekend!! Not sure who won yet, cause hubs got hawt in the sun we had to go back to the hotel in the air, so we have to wait till air day on Oct 28th to ficure out who won too.
