    Remember at the start of this season when all the "doudters" were trying to kill the class before we even got started? Remember when I said I heard from a "credible" source that we would be running this year?? Well, I am telling you all AGAIN, I have once again heard from a credible source that negotiations are in the works for a 3-year deal!! The class is alive and well. In fact it has been a very good year for the class. The bump spots keep getting quicker and car counts have been good. See ya next year! Tim

    We look forward to hearing great news. I have a couple of friends running over in AFC IHRA and they love it!!! So I'm happy for them that they'll be able to stay where they love to race.

    I personally asked Aaron at the Martin race this year about the future of the alcohol cars, and he told me "plan forward the class has a sponsor for next year"
    I asked if it was Evan and he told me "No"

    I don't think the man would lie to me standing face to face a foot apart...

    Actually we FINALLY have all our problems sorted out and will run the last three races. We didn't have Edmonton or New England on our schedule. Next season my sponsors want me to run the whole thing! Went 5.85 in Toronto so were getting there, its not easy as we all no!:rolleyes:

    Just read on another site "a popular female IHRA AFC driver will be competing in the final 2 races of the year and possible all next season" My guess is.................Welcome back Laurie, I told you when you ran that car in San Antonio the bug would bite you again! Am I right???

    Thank you! I never lost the bug bite!!! We are soooo excited to get back out there again--I can't tell you! But we'll take it slow--Dale has to have a chance to figure the car out. I'm sure he has learned a lot from Jeff over the years that we'll be fine. But we will be in test mode, for sure at first. Again, I appreciate the "welcome back". I can't wait to be there with everyone again.
