Mid Season Recovery

Over thinking, under thinking, over reacting, under reacting and just plain old mechanical failures
have created a somewhat ho-hum season.  Then we got to Mason Dixon for race 6 of the Allstars
series.  Jay Zolko got "The Duck" and himself dialed in and easily got the win.  This launched Jay up
into contention for the number one spot.  Last year at U.S. 13 Ed Youmans left FE parts all over
the track.  He pieced the motor back together just in time for this years Allstars race at U.S. 13.
This time EZ Ed left nothing but losers behind.

After several weeks off we returned to action at MIR for the Ford Fever Classic.  As always there
was was some incredible Super Stock Ford action keeping the spectators on their feet.  Top Honors
for the event went to Steve McBlane and runner-up honors went to Paul Hillier.  Although not a part
of the elimination action Dick Estevez  with the "Daddy Warbucks" Falcon to put on a show.  Jay
Zolko added "The Duck" into the package.  Dick and Jay had the crowd cheering with their "John
Force" style burnouts and lightning fast passes.

York Reunion at the Expo Center      July 9 & 10

The show looked great on the inside of the building.  Downpours and a conflicting show in
Carlisle kept the usual few hundred outside display cars away.

York Reunion at Beaver Springs Dragway      July 11

Not a lot to report here.   The T-bolt, '64 Nicholson Comet sedan and Shazaam are all on the disabled list.
Frank sidelined Dearborn Thunder as he was out of town.  This left Jay in "The Duck" to carry the team.
Jay made us proud into the quarter finals when the rear gave out.  Our friend from the Allstars series
and 2009 points champion, John Warehime, took the win light in the finals.

Test & tune at Beaver the day of the Numidia rain out

The good news is that we got a few kinks worked out!  The bad news... Something just wasn't
right with the T-bolt.  Eddie shut it down early, ran a 9.55 at just over 100mph.
Word from "The Wiz"..... the car will be down for quite a while.

What's new for the 2010 season

The "toy box" got a facelift thanks to lucas Oil
The unveiling was at Motorama 2010 in Harrisburg PA

The T- Bolt really can't top this wheel stand but we can't wait till we see what she'll do
when the kinks are ironed out.  The car is in the  low 9's now, how low can it go?

Frank Pellegrini ended the season with an 8.32 out of a tired motor.  what will the new one turn?

Ed Youmans is reassembling his blown FE.  What might the he have up his sleeve this year?

Jay Zolko is always full of surprises.  Consistent when he wants to be but when he turns on the heat.....

Bob Fort got all he could out of that old shattered Mopar block.  The new one is tougher ... how tough?

Fast Fred Henderson's FE swollowed a valve at the end of the season.  How much better did he fix it?

The season opener, June 6, at Englishtown will be interesting to say the least.
