The Kenny Gilmour team made a last minute decision to enter the Regional race in Denver.This race is a three day affair starting Friday June 15 to June 17. Bandimere Raceway is 5820 ft above sea level on the starting line, now factor in 85 degree weather, 30 % humidity and  24.2 in of mercury air depression, resulting in about 8800 ft of elevation. We have never race in these conditions before,however one thing is certain the motor will be lazy. Jim Whitely ran a 5.40  something a few years back.

Next Stop Mission Raceway May 25-27

 After a successful outing at Las Vegas the Gilmour team is heading for Mission B.C for the first Regional race in the Northwest. Although we were scheduled to appear at the Summer Nationals in Topeka Kansas, driver Greg Hunter was unable to commit to this time slot.
  Since NHRA has realigned the Top Alcohol schedules with Divisions 6 &7 merged, we suspect the Mission Race will be a thriller, with teams not normally present this far north. Now add in sea level barometer and cool temperatures is sure to yield record breaking E.Ts in many classes.

Successful First Start for Greg Hunter‏

Successful First Start for Greg Hunter‏

LAS VEGAS – It’s safe to say that former Alcohol Funny Car driver Greg Hunter successfully made the transition to Top Alcohol Dragster this past weekend. He made his competition debut at one of the premier NHRA National events on the west coast, the SummitRacing.com Nationals. Hunter is definitely happy with the results.

“It was a thrill to be racing at an event like that. To qualify and win a round in the first time in actual competition was like a dream. I couldn’t have asked for a better weekend,” claimed Hunter.
