Just want to thank Lawren Jones, the R.O.D.S organization, Abq Dragway and all the event sponsors that made this race possible.What an amazing weekend. Friday night starts out with Bruce ***** crashing his beautifiul turbo Mustang. Saturday brings more craziness with Frank Varrela spinning out his gorgeous supercharged Mustang ( great recovery Frank) and not hitting a thing! Almost every car battled through some kind of mechanical or traction issue. Mike Keenan made his big debut in his insane 555 inch twin 91mm turbo SS Camaro. Mike didnt get his car down the track under power but the important thing is he tried. Glad to see a racer like him who built such a serious car not lose touch with his roots. The Dickson Racing team was not without problems either. Our first qualifying pass resulted in a blistering 10.00 pass due to a boost controler failure.Our second attemp resulted in what would have been a huge wheelie if I had not pedaled it three times with an 8.52 @ 169mph. Our lap top died during this pass also so we had no date log. Chris Groves from the Dyno Edge stepped up and loaned us his lap top and also helped us with the tune up. We ended up going to the finals against Robert Costa and losing to a great person/ team . We our very proud and happy to say our car went down that track EVERY pass and went a new best of 8.37 @ 171mph. That was also [email protected] to the eighth, also a new best! I just took one of my team members for his first 150mph burnout in it down second street and he shit his pants so I guess the motor is still happy! Thanks again everyone!! Anthony Dickson

Well said Anthony.

See you at the next event.

Anthony you don't have to thank me. The RODS were the stars and put on the show... I just helped put it together.

I am still at awe at how well you and Groves got that Mustang to run. You are a very good driver as well. Everyone knows that I tune our 57 but I need Shawn to get it down the track. If you don't have a good driver the tuning part is mute.

Good job.

Now that you have ran the 8.37 I hope that you are getting that car ready for a 7.50 cage. Sucks when you go fast huh... lol.

Hope to see you in August.

Thanks Lawren. The 7.50 cage is in the works. Possibly mini-tubbs and bigger tires too! And of course that means more power too! It never ends! As far as Chris Groves goes...... I truely believe he is one of if not THE best tuner in the Country. The boy has Ron Booths car going 7.60's at like 187mph on a nine inch wide 275/60 Drag Radial!!!! Did I mention my motor has two full seasons on it and plenty of street driving with his tuning? That also says alot about Todd Budlong Racing Engines by the way! Thanks again, Anthony Dickson
