Looks like the LS Vega is going to be racing the PINKS event at Norwalk this season!

I want to pull a wheelie on TV! I'll try to represent!

Well....that's at least 2 Vegas that will be in the mix. I also made it in the 2 minutes to get a spot. What kind of times are you running? I'm going 9.70's @ 136. I would post a pic of mine, but I can't figure out how.

Last time here, I'm pretty sure they went with a high 9's field. If they do that again, I should be pretty close, as I'm going 9.78's,- 9.82's. I'm not using the trans brake due to too much air under the front tires. You know what's wierd?.....your car looks almost identical to mine.....dark blue,....very similar cars. I'm weighing in at 2600 lbs., which is heavier than I would like. What is your weight? Dave.
