Dartsport 2006 Season update

I am running for points at Numidia Dragway, Numidia, Pa. I run in Super/Pro class. I have won 2 Friday night Outlaw class races, no-points. 1 Friday night Outlaw - runner up, couldn't make finals, oil pickup broke off coming back the return road. Didn't hurt anything else in the motor. Lost in 4th round of $10,000 race in June, received $150 for my loss. Won a gamblers race in May on a saturday test & tune. Farthest that I have made it on a points day , 3 weeks ago. I lost in the semi-finals, with a red light -.004. Got $165 for my effort. Quickest that I ran this year was a 9.513 et . Fastest so far this year was 139.70 mph. So far I am in 16th place in points. Earlier this year the car was pulling big wheelies. Here are a few pictures from the BTE race at Maple Grove 5-20-06. The wheelies have calmed down, since Memorial day, when it got hotter out.

I've never been in a car that pulled the wheels that high. What was the first time sensation like? How about now?

Thanks for the Update on your season DARTSPORT.
And Congrats on being the first to post in our new section.

I've never been in a car that would pull the wheels. Hoping to get some Air time this Friday though.

The 1st time out this year, with the new 505 stroker motor, It pulled the wheels like in the picture. Suprised me big time. It pulled the wheels like this everytime, up untill Memorial day weekend, when it got hot out. Now, since it got warm , it only pulls the wheels about 8" to 12" . I think when it cools down in the fall, it might start picking them up that high again. It does set the front end down nice and easy, around 50" feet out . I know it comes up to high in the cool weather, but it runs consistent like that. Now I am used to it pulling the wheels.
