Most of the mower drag racing guys I had dealing with were in Texas.. They were the one who helped me with my Billet Flywheel in 2001. Over the years I have lost contact with them, but they had a large club there. FYI..there ET's were 2.1sec in 150ft..

is that in a good or bad way that you know the name?  ha ha... i'm his son.  I keep trying to convince him to let me borrow one of his snowmobile engines for the race but he won't let go of one.

So i hear that there will be 2 mowchines with chevy 350's in this years race during horse thief festival.  Unfortunately i don't think my mowchine will be ready or that i will even be able to make it to Knox for this years race.
