Kevin Sarginson floored me when he asked me to come out and crew chief his beautiful 65 Mustang CIFCA car for the Governor's Cup @ Sacramento.
After throwing the first pass away to a mal adjusted rev limiter, we towed up for pass two. I knew i was on the safe side, but there were to many variables on his combo that i didn't know. Car went 8.03/169 shootin ducks about 1/2 track out.
When we towed back i pulled the main, and wedged in the main was a piece of crap. well, if it's there, it's everywhere. We pulled the entire fuel system apart. 3 plugged nozzles, a plugged main, and a failed fuel filter. The 'crap' was the epoxy from the end cap on the stainless filter element.
We got real lucky that it plugged the main as well as a few nozzles. I judged the air, and the tune up, made a call on the main, and we towed up for the last TnT pass of the day. 7.485 on a 7.500 index. He did roll in a little deep, probably an honest 7.45. First time the car has ran right in 6 months.
Now we have a hotrod to win with tomorrow. We should get two qualifiers. shooting for a 52 :) let's see how close we come.
I'm honored Kevin trusts me with his car, thanks bud.
Kevin qualified #2 and defeated Jim Currie, Bobby Sanguino, and Darrin Hamby (in the final) for the bucks and the cup.
