Another week has come and gone and we are yet another day closer to the next event. During this past week we have firmed things up with Show and Go Customs which is the paint shop that will be applying our awesome scheme. We are also anxiously anticipating the arrival of our new trailer custom built to our specs from Vintage Trailers.

In the mean time we have also repaired a few odds and ins on the race car. These include the rerouting and rewiring of both the trans brake and line loc buttons. By the way our team crew shirts have arrived and I was going after a more unique and less traditional look and I feel these new shirts will do just that.

By the way be sure to check out the model search area because we have added some eye candy from the first event as well as the winner of the first leg of the contest, Michelle Woolcott. I’ll be the first to congratulate Michelle because she truly represented both Leadfoot Motorsports and Von Dutch well. Until next time, catch you later. Thanks!

The battle scars from the first race of the season consist of a two day trash and one qualifying pass that left a broken throttle cable and no usable data. However, we do know the engine is and will work great for us from the rumble and quick throttle response on my John Force style burnout. Overall the first race was a success because we really did not break anything and the fans reactions to our teams’ presence in the pit area were all well received.

We had many on lookers and just to think our “WOW” paint scheme hasn’t been applied. By the next heads-up event at Milan Dragway on June 2 nd the performance and appearance of the Leadfoot Motorsports clan will be in tip top shape. Just as the first race has wrapped up it’s time to continue the grind and get ready for the next event scheduled for May 27 th. Check back soon and I’ll let you know how things are comin’ or goin’ for that matter. Later!

Well, you all the count down has officially begun. It is currently HELL WEEK. I don’t mean that in a negative way, however it’s time to dot the I’s and cross the T’s. My team and I are working in fifty different directions, although all going towards the same goal. I am working to get the hero cards printed, team crew shirts produced and most importantly awaiting the engine in the 25th hour from my engine builder for our up coming event this Friday, May 5th. I should have the engine in my possession today. Yes, that’s right two days before the event. I know what you’re thinking… That’s plenty of time, right… Well we still have to plumb the car for the juice (nitrous) so it’s going to take a little time to make sure it is right. However, I have an awesome team and I am confident we will be locked, loaded and ready to tear down that 1320 on Friday. On another note, I hope you are enjoying the site. Zach my webmaster and Leadfoot Marketing are always pushing the envelope and striving to make the site the very best and I am proud to have them in my corner. By the way we have also added some eye candy in the model search area. Enjoy! Thanks again and check back soon. Later!
