Photos of Mr. Skip receiving the Drag Review Magazine Editors Choice Award from Larry “Cookie” Crum – Manager – Media & Publicity IHRA Motorsports.
One of the photos should appear in DRM when they do the story on SCR Nitro Jam later in the month.
Winning the award erased all bad feelings about not being able to run in eliminations. Barbara and I enjoyed the show and watching all of our friends race. Silas Rogers, Jr. won until there was only 6 cars left in ET-Box. “Young Blood” (Keith Veal) won Runner-Up in ET-Box. Arnold Jordan’s two cars ran very well and so did Shannun T. Walker of Frisco, TX in his 8 second Firebird who runs with Arnold’s “Air Hogs” Racing Team. Shannun is an Quality Assurance Engineer who tests software for Oracle’ Corporation.
I took the car out of the trailer and put it in the workshop to take the two rear shocks off. After I determine exactly the type of shock and coil-over spring to purchase, I will get them and have the car re-scaled. I’ll probably take the car to the track and run it first so I will be able to tell the chassis man exactly what the car is doing with the new shocks and springs.
