Subject:mmm mm good
Time:9:56 pm.
well i went through the weekend... and it was one to remember ill say that at least. we left friday night for epping. we were gonna try and sleep in the new walmart super center by the track... and you would think a supercenter would be open 24 hours... no closed at 11 and we got there at 11:30 so we went to the comuter parking lot that we usually sleep in bc we are bums and homeless people when we go racing. i slep in the bed of the truck on my foam mattress and i slep good with 3 blankets on me bc it was freezing. woke up the next morning with frost all around me and on the pillows. it was scary lol. well we went to the track did all our shit for frank to race that day. frank ended up racing really good and made it to the final for the 2nd race in a row. he ended up racing one of the guys taht doesnt have a stop on his car and runs it all out. frank ended up red lighting to him. the guy just had a lucky day... in a 4 round race he had 3 red lights and a buy so he didnt really race anyone. well after putting the car in the trailer we hung out for a min then left the track to look for a hotel room and then maybe go to a movie after we found one... well we went off down one road and tried about 6 hotels either booked up or 200 a night. i made the prediction that we would pass Telly's (a resterant near the track) 2 or 3 times before we ate bc we were all hungry. and we went past it leaving the track then again after looking for a hotel and went down a stretch of highway... for abouit 30 mins or so and saw NOTHING and again i predicted that so we turned around went past telly's and finally ate there. durring diner we talked and i figured we would go to comuter parking lot again wich i was fine with. coming out frank rememberd one place and we called it and they had 2 rooms.... 1 for 150 and one for 119 with a bathroom across the hall and frank took the one with the the bathroom and it was only one bed. now we say a hotel that was 89 for 2 beds and frank turned it down bc he didnt like the guy. but no we can pay for a one bed for more and get less. we got to the place called "the in of exeter" and it was like a bed and breakfast kinda place where u would go for a weding reception so picture me my mom and frank looking like shit carying our foam bed to this room no bigger then the den downstairs. so we sleep ... cramped but we make it through the night. sunday i ran the car full out against franks will and only ran a 10.46 @127 wich was alright i think and then 2nd time shot i launched the car and the axle snapped... this is bad bc this weekend we have the Etown div race and ive been waiting since i was 10 to race this track and now i might not be able bc the new rear end might not be here on time... other then all this im working full time with frank now wich is good and making good money but im tired and im off to bed

Subject:i live in the village
Time:12:09 pm.
Mood: blah.
well i havent updated in a while so i figured i might as well right now. i raced the Numidia Div race this weekend... won first round and then lost when my car slowed up for no real reason, we think it might of been just the track. i ended up loosing to one of our friends of all ppl too lol. the weekend before was the delmar race idk if i posted anything about that last time but i won first round then lost 2nd... would of won but took to much line. last night i went with alex and the family to see The Village. probably one of the best movies ive seen in a long time. everyone should go see it. other then that nothing else to really report. school starts at the end of the month and i still need to get my books. i started a checking/saving acount recently and jsut got my debit card in the mail last night and i activated it and now i should go make sure it works (i.e. spend money lol) i think maybe on a book bc the long rides to places like delmar and numidia are really boring. the next race is E-town wich isnt to bad... about 4 hours id say. this weekend though i think what we will be doing is going to epping for a HR race bc frank is 7th in points and then go to atco for a $20,000 race that ill be in hopefully. it will be weird saturday not racing and being at the track to help with frank. thats about all i did last year and i havent done it at all this year. but idk as long as i get to race this weekend ill be happy. on the work front my name isnt even up on the schedual for this week wich really pisses me off. i get payed shit compared to my friends that do the same as me at other jobs and now i dont have any hours. i asked frank to get me into the shop to make some $... od thing is id make more there in 2 days then if i worked at walgreens for 5 days. its kinda sad. well im done and out

Subject:eh
Time:1:00 pm.
well ive been having sleeping problems i think... ive been tired but still not falling asleep till like 3 in the morning and getting up at like 12. i think it has partly to do with the hours ive been working at work.... for the most part i close now so ill get home at like 10:30 at earlyest. idk but college will be starting soon (little over a month) and im sorta looking forword to it but im a little afraid of how its gonna really be. i know it will be alot different the high school and there arnt as many classes and i have my schedual all finished so thats good. i just need to get my books now. in other news my dad got that new job he was training for wich is really good for him. pays alot better but he has to work the 2nd shift (4-12) which he said isnt that bad. he has the weekends off for the first like 6 weeks bc of training on the job and when thats over i think he has wed thur off so im gonna see if he can come to a race in a few weeks we'll see....well thats all i gotta shower now bc i just got up and i feel like shit.

well just bassically finished the convo i wanted to have with alisha. im glad we did and we came to the conclusion mutually that its best to be friends and what not and not worry about any of this for at least 2 or 3 years or anything like that. its sorta releaving to get all of this out in the open. i miss her but its alright and we both can deal with it. im gonna do what should of been done after prom and its my fault it didnt and thats go on with my life. talk to her as good friends and thats all there is to it. i got my racing to worry about and school in a few months and a new job and what not so i think i have an idea on what im doing now. i should of known nothing would really come of this with the distance and both of us working and racing and all that stuff but its just my way of being to optamistic at times. well im done and off for now

Subject:RIP Darrell Russell
Time:9:53 am.
Mood: pissed off.
yesterday was a very sad day for the NHRA and any drag racing fan for that matter. one of our own was killed in what he loved to do. It is a sad loss because this racer had his whole life ahead of him. he was only 35 and this was i think his 2 or 3rd year racing top fuel. what happend was right in the finish line it looked like his right rear slick came apart (this is becoming an all to commen thing in the top fuel ranks and it will now take a death to realize that something is wrong) taking out his rear wing in turn snaping the car in 3 places and giving him a firery ride backwards to a stop. apon rescue he was not awake but was still breathing. we were told parts from the motor came through the cock pit and nocked him out. you could tell something was wrong when they cut to a camershal and then the offical said he was being taken to a hospital, you could tell it in his voice. on the flight to the hospital Darrell Russell sucame to his injuries and died. RIP Darrell you will be missed by more people then you ever thought would. on other notes other then that we raced saturday and sunday. saturday we had the SST race and i lost first round but it was a real close race. i had a .023 (my worst light all weekend with the excepting on one time shot i took sunday that was a .024 all the other lights were between .010 and .017 about 5 i think idk) to a .014. i knew how fast this guy was and if anyhting i have maybe 1 mph on him so when i looked back and saw he wasnt even at the fender of my car by the 1000 foot mark i started lifting and i killed about 15 mph amost and i ran a 10.891 to his 10.91 i made it as close as i could, .01 at the finish line and anyhting under .04 is doing something right. what happend was that we found out there was something wrong with the timer for my stop and we have just realized this and changed it for first round. we figured if i didnt lift i would have ran a 10.78 or so wich is way off. so we tested the rest of that day... changed the blade angle on the stop so it would slow it down a little more. got 3 shots after first round of testing. we needed it bc we needed to figure the new set up out bc now it was coming on alot different then before. we got one good pass saturday, it was a 10.889 @ 121 wich means the mph was way to far down. we had the stop coming on 4 sec. into the run. sunday we changed it to 2 sec. this worked alot better. we change the angle of the blade and we figured 2 sec into the run would help that (mind you most Super class cars have there stops come on .5 or less after the car launches.) now the stop comes on right after i shift it wich is perfect. the first pass we made sunday with the stop setting this way. we had 2 sec total of stop and we ran a 10.99 at about 124 wich is better. mph still a little lower then waht i would like to see but its a baseline. 2nd pass we dropped it down to 1.5 sec of stop and with an 11 mph head wind i ran a 10.91 at only 123 mph. the head wind killed my mph and we figured i would of ran a 10.88 at 125 if there wasnt wind. then to get a formula we dropped the stop to 1 sec and we ran a 10.77 so now we got an idea to what the car likes. well thats all the news about racing now for other things. idk whats going on with alisha and me. going into this weekend i thought there was something and she was acting liek there was but when we got there she didnt act the same... the dr jeckle and mr hide effect i guess idk. but i talked to her last night and i still need to talk to her about all this so idk wtf to do or think now.

Subject:off to the track again
Time:5:06 pm.
well we are heading to the valley yet again. changed a few things on my car and gotta test it out for next weekend bc next weekend is the Div race at the valley. so far the weathers looking pretty good partly cloudy and a high of 70 each day... saturday a little humid but car should run good i hope bc theres a storm coming through tonight and that will help the air alot for the next 2 days. another plus about this weekend is i get to see alisha. as far as i know shes leaving around 8 tonight wich will make us meet up about the same time for the most part. i miss her and i cant wait to see her. well i guess i get to relax for a little before frank decideds to hook the trailer up.

Mood: aggravated.
no real reason for the subject, just popped in my head. well yesterday i got my cell phone back finally. alex had it. i had asked her to check in the back seat of her moms car bc that was one of the last places i remember having it and she came in while i was at work today and was laughing bc she just found it. i asked her to do this about a month ago so that kinda pissed me off. we finally hired someone finally so i was training her for a few mins then she got taken to the pharmacy so it was me back to the normal shit. the manager that makes the schedual came in today to get something and i wrang him out and he says "o i havent seen you in a long time" well no shit u dick weed. then i told him i couldnt work this firday bc he wrote it on the paper (not the original schedual but with pen) that i had to work friday night... prom and i KNOW i asked for that off so i brought it up to him and after i told him he just looked at me and walked away and left. so fuck you you cock sucker. well im out and thats all for now.
