went to barona yesterday and ran the # 22 chevrolet prolight on the dirt oval. Matt Barney was kind enough for a few sessions with his crew members ! After everyones hard work it was there turn at the wheel for once. Kenny was a mad man and drove it like a pro. , i wasn't really planning on driving it till matt said hop in.. and im glad i did. it was a real thrill to feel the power of this engine and how we'll the truck reacts. the power to weight ratio is outstanding!
After a few warm up laps in 4th gear at lower rpms i clicked her to third and WOW!!! It was jumping off the corner @ 5500 and just hitting 8200 before the big wall scares you . Somehow everyone kept her off the wall...
on the oval it was all finese and throttle control , great practice for turn 1 and 6 at elsinore. thanks again matt , kenny , troy and dayton. See you all at the races

#13 maybe we can get your eco up to barona on one of the test days. The oval is really fun in these trucks , we can switch off , you try the pushrod , we try the cammer? leave the body off ...the wall is really hard on those. Keep in touch with me. The honda engines are being fitted with clutch , igniton , carbs.
