I contacted Alvin and Kevin today to put the wheels in motion to change out my rear end gears. Kevin will take everything apart and Alvin will set up the gears. That should happen in the next two weeks. With the 4:56 gears, I should be ready for any 1/8 mile competition and we should run better in the 1/4 mile also.

This year, I am going to make a personal goal to run Mr. Silas Rogers’ Nova, that Pontiac of Mr. Mott and the show car Chevelle of Mr. Van Johnson. Like the Country & Western song says, “I’m not as good as I once was, but I’m as good once as I ever was”… I plan on beating each of them!

Mrs. Richarda W. Jones, wife of Bracket Masters President Tarrus Jones, will graduate from Southern University, with a Masters Degree in Education, this Friday, Dec. 16, 2011. Congratulations Richarda!

Ms. Toshia Jackson, daughter of fellow racer Mr. Reginald Jackson, graduated from Southeastern University this past Saturday with a Bachelors of Arts in Marketing. Toshia’s family gave a graduation party after the ceremony with many of Toshia’s friends present to wish her well. Congratulations Toshia
