2011 NSS Wall Calendar

The below are a Few of the 2011 NSS Wall Calendars created from Hi-Res photos of NSS cars. Quite honestly, some of the photos are from previous years, and have been recycled — albeit with new covers. There is a thread in the NSS Forum that has more detail on the calendar. They’re normally priced at $21 on Cafe Press — but clicking the accompanying links — you can for a limited time get them for a discounted price of $17.99.  Please pass along these links to your NSS buds — so they too can save a couple bucks.

Most arrived and tech'd their car in on Thursday.

Friday had us waking up to a very wet track. It was late afternoon before it was dry and NSS was allowed it's first Time Trial, which about 75% of the cars participated in. The second Time Trial on Friday was cancelled after the third set ran — due to an oil down. Later that evening Chris Schneider sponsored a Bar-B-Q that benefited Racers For Christ.

Saturday had a quick Time Trial in the Morning, and the Class Eliminations started at noon. Below are Part 1 and Part 2 of Round One of the Class Eliminations. The slower Classes in the beginning working up to the faster classes.

My Dogs on Welfare

This morning I went to sign my Dogs up for welfare.

At first the lady said, “Dogs are not eligible to draw welfare”. So I explained to her that my Dogs are mixed in color, unemployed, lazy, can’t speak English and have no frigging clue who their Daddies are. They expect me to feed them, provide them with housing and medical care, and feel guilty because they are dogs.

So she looked in her policy book to see what it takes to qualify. My Dogs get their first checks Friday.

Damn, this is a great country!

NMCA NSS Update From Zmax

Some updates:

We got here at 5PM Wednesday and they parked us at Lowe’s Motor Speedway parking for the night. After a night of moderate drinking (with just my two sons as no one else spent the night) they let us on the track at noon or so Thursday.

We teched the cars and got them in the trailer before the sky opened up.

Scott Sparrow who is the editor of the NMCA/NMRA magazines is a pretty good friend. My youngest son Justin is into photography — and spent $7500 for a camera. That’s about 3 times what his car is worth lol

Anyway, Justin (20 years old) isn’t into racing, but since he is going into the Air Force soon — I wanted him to come with Dallas and I for this race. He was game when I told him it would be a photo opportunity. I asked Scott if he’d acquire Justin a Media apron and give him a 20 minute “how to photo drag race cars” lecture — and let him photo on the line. At first Scott thought I might be looking to have him baby sit — was a little leery — but I convinced him that Justin would be OK and not jump onto the track nakid — and so he was game. Then it looked like they might be short photographers — so Scott was more motivated. I haven’t seen Justin in 8 hours — except to photo cars when I come to the line. It looks like he’ll have a lot of experience when this is over.

Back to cars — Dallas’ car can’t do the 9.75 in the 93 degree heat and bad air so we put a A/NSS on the car. He’s the top qualifyer after the first round — with a 10.01. Doug Duell is right there with him. Actually — not sure which of them is 1 and which is 2.

My car did at 11.029 this morning and then I bumped the timing up and it did a 11.026 in hotter weather. In the first qualifying it did a 11.065 — so I unbolted 50 pounds and added 2.5 gallons of gas. It should be about 5 degrees cooler for the next qualifying — so I might be OK.

There are 17 NSS cars here — but the other classes are real light. I’ll update later.
