With just two races remaining in the 2016 season, the team feels confident they are heading in the right direction.

Since they set their career best E.T. in Seattle they have been experiencing some fluctuating issues that have been addressed. It was evident they had worked out the kinks with their performance in Dallas.

Competing in a fashion more fitting for their combined experience was exactly what the team needed to see.

“It was nice to leave the Dallas race seeing Jim happy with the way the fuel valve responded to his changes.”

Boosting their confidence with clean straight runs right down the groove, the team will continue to refine their improvements and hope they have the right combination to bring them the win light.

“We are looking forward to running 3’s again in Vegas in what will most likely be an all 3 second field.”

The team is ready to take on the challenges of Lady Luck. “Let’s roll the dice and see what happens.”
