I'll bet the 392 is nice and torquey. What a great "fit". I have to know about your work around off road trucks and Top Fuel dragsters. Were you part of a team supporting these?

Yes I was what they call bottom end guy for fuel, meaning when car comes in drop the pan drop the mains and check for damage then go from there. Not a glamorous job but I enjoyed it.
Baja was fun too for many years.

Having been a follower of drag racing for a very long time, I (roughly) know what you did in your role. Very neat. Not too many of us can say we've d one that!

So I want to hear about Baja, were you part of a team there as well?
How does a guy go from drag racing to Baja, or from Baja to drag racing? Gene

Yes, a full team mostly friends and family run with two to three cars usually, the races like Vegas to Reno and Barstow are I think the most fun plus your not gone from home for a week like Mexico races. Even though though are the biggest races ever.

After my friend I helped in drag racing past away I didn't want to do it anymore so I took sometime off and built my R/T to get my mind off the loss. Then another close friend knew I missed racing offered me to come with him to Mexico and race and I was hooked. Funny how totally different the two types of racing are and just as much fun.

Thanks for asking

Andy
