Car is fine and everything is fixed and ready to race tomorrow night. I had a battery crap out (dead cell) and on the pass in the video it sprung an oil leak from the valve cover gasket that caused a small fire on the headers. I just forgot to tighten the valve cover bolts (requires old style cork gasket for rocker clearance) and bolts were all less than finger tight. Cleaning up the white powder mess from the extinguisher and getting all the oil off was the hardest part. Minor stuff that could have been avoided if I had properly prepped the car. It's all good now and I'll be trying for a 9 second pass tomorrow night, if the weather cooperates.

I'll be using a GoPro inside the car tomorrow.

Great run! Lousy video. :(

The car sounds great though.

Is the Whipple car down for maintenance or something?

Yeah the video could have been a lot better, but that's the only one I've been sent so far.

No my 91 SC is fine, I just alternate which car I bring to the Shootout each year.

PS: We got rained out at the track last night, so I'll have to wait for another opportunity to race it. Track is open for another month, so I should get another chance this year.
