He got me by 0.13 sec at the end. I was leading until about the 1000 foot point. Unfortunately, the track timer didn't get anything past the 330 foot time but did give us the difference of the finish. Lesson learned, never be the first set of trucks/cars after the bikes. They didn't reset their system fast enough.

Fun overall, and will be back there soon!

What year was the Vette??? I had a pretty good time last night, I took my TBSS since my truck is out of commision right now. It was real bad weather so the times I ran weren't too good. But I did outrun a 05 GTO by two tenths. My 14.5 to his 14.7. My altitude corrected time was like 13.98 @99.??. I think that's pretty good since the trailblazer is completely stock.
There was a SRT-8 jeep there, he was running [email protected]+. I talked to him and he had a different intake and exhaust and some kind of torque management controller from GSM.

Vette was a 2002. I raced him in my SRT not my hemi. I had him most of the way until right at the end he nosed me by 1/2 car length. Doesn't help with the wind resistance being so big compared his little car. We most likely ran a low 13. His next run was 13.1. Unfortunately for us, we arrived late and could only get a couple of runs in.

What was his 60 foot time? I went to SRT experience and the SRT-8 jeeps were the quickest off the line. Very impressive for a jeep!

His 60's were in the 1.8-1.9 range.

Here's the vid from where I raced the GTO. I was in full street trim along with my fiance, who had about another 100-150lbs of junk in there.
