First event of the year
Palm Beach International Raceway Saturday February 2nd - Street Car Drags

Dennis and all others, yes thanks for request on Palm Beach races.  Yes the races were cancelled for Saturday and rescheduled for Sunday.  Well I found this out when I reached the gate on Saturday after my 1 1/2 hour drive there.  Back I went on Sunday and I am really glad I did. There were many Teslas there even with their own generator truck with 2 Tesla super charges on board.  I was able to make 5 runs which is usually impossible at PBIR.  I went all day undefeated.  I must have beaten over 1 million dollars worth of supercars in my old 944.  My first victory  was against a M5 bmw with turbo upgrades, then a Lamborgini, next was my closest race against a pro charged late model Corvette.  He ran a 9.73 against my 9.70. My last 2 races were against a Mercedes AMG BI Turbo which I blew away with a 9.50.  Finally Brooks was setting up a race for me against a new Demon.  Unfortunately the Demon was already in the trailer but that race is to be done on a future date.  Brooks said come on against his 9.90 McLaren.  That was my last race of the day posting a 9.41 at 143 mph. Watch for this in a future Drag Times video.  We had both cars camered up. Brooks said I stole the show for the entire Drag times day. This is a new MC/3 ED record.  I am no longer a high school teacher, I now teach at Sheridan Technical College in Hollywood Florida.  The school system allowed me to transfer the 2 warp 11 motors which were purchased with school board monies.  Other than that the Black Pearl is mine.  special thanks to John Wayland who several years ago sponsored one of my z2k's and Shawn Lawless who loaned me the other z2k after mine blew a dc-dc converter and has to be repaired. The Lonestar Battery Pack I built with made it all possible.  I do have the 1500 hp battery pack I built for Don Garlits setting in my shop.  Someday I will build one to equal that and BP will be an 8.90 street legal electric vehicle.  'Lowell L. Simmons' 


Good job everybody, the 2019 NEDRA calendars have sold out.


Colleagues, we are invited to attend the PRI Sanctioning body meeting at the attached time and place.

The SFI Foundation will again be hosting a motorsports forum for sanctioning body officials at this year’s Performance Racing Industry Trade Show.  The primary purpose of this forum will be for sanctioning body officials to get together and engage in informal conversation regarding matters of mutual concern.  Naturally, SFI Foundation personnel will be in attendance and will be available to answer any questions you may have regarding SFI’s various safety related programs and services.

We sincerely hope that you and your associates will be able to join us and a representative cross section of sanctioning body officials in discussing how we might collectively work toward the advancement of safety in all motorsports disciplines.  This will be a great opportunity for you to meet with others who may share many of your experiences and objectives.

We’ll be starting at 8:00 AM sharp.  To help get your day started, we’ll be serving hot and cold beverages, along with some light snacks.

 DATE:           Friday December 7, 2018
 
TIME:           8:00 AM – 10:00 AM
 LOCATION: INDIANA CONVENTION CENTER
                       MEETING ROOM 210

Also, please note that the schedule of the various SFI Specification Committee Meetings to be held during the show are hereby attached, and can also be found on our internet website at http://www.sfifoundation.com/meeting-schedule/.  Please feel welcome and encouraged for you and your associates to attend any of these meetings that you might find to be of interest.

Should you have any questions or comments, please feel free to contact any of us at the SFI Foundation office.  We look forward to seeing you in Indianapolis in December.

Sincerely,

 CARL V. OLSON
 Motorsports Manager

The Wheelie Shot

 

Folks have been asking for the back story of a big wheelie I accidentally made (and was captured on the way down by a track photographer).  It was a simple error, compounded by screwy communication between a tablet and the Hairball, which as many of you know, communicates with a Z1K or Z2K. I was racing at 1350A and had made passes at 1400A before, but never 1500.  After rounds I wanted to try a pass at 1500 so attempted to make the change.  I didn’t know that the tablet I have been using to program the Hairball for years had a weak battery (due to a faulty charge cable) so it only had a few percent charge remaining.  I had trouble updating the Hairball: when I put in 1500 in would display it as 356 or some other small number.  I eventually got it to accept 1000A (or so I thought). My racing philosophy is to make incremental changes, one at a time.  I don’t want any surprises and I try to understand the impact of each change.  It helps consistency when you’re ET racing.  Ha!Unbeknownst to me, there were evidently noisy signals or something being sent to the Hairball, it changed an “option” setting and it thought it was controlling a Z1K.  1000A means it was outputting 100%.  I have a Z2K which means 100% is 2000A, a fact that soon presented itself to me. I was by myself on the line, burnout was typical (I just clean the tire off) and I rolled up to launch.  Yellow, yellow, yellow, twist throttle fully open and – rotate.  I’m sure it started moving forward a little bit but all I felt was myself being lifted skyward as previously unexperienced torque lifted the bike around the sticky rear tire.  Some sort of primordial instinct made me slam the throttle shut (I was probably thinking “this doesn’t feel right”) just in time and fortunately, I didn’t go over backwards.  The bike came down hard and after I straightened out I rolled into it again, more slowly.  About half track I tried to use 100% again but it just wanted to wheelie so I rolled through the traps and turned off. The woman who has been handing me time slips for the past 5 years said “I’ve never seen you do that before” to which I replied “and I hope you never see it again!”
