    Made it up for a few hours today to catch some of the racing and cars out there along with currybob and RT09 and we had a great time! Was truly awesome meeting with Linda's Hell Cat , Top Cat , cole3986 along with a few others! Nice to put faces to names and get to see first hand some of the truly amazing work being done.

    Some pics and videos of the fun:

    She works hard to maintain it!











    Never seen so many Hellcats in one place before, was an awesome sight. A lot of very powerful and fast Mopars out there including a Jeep that ran a 8.5. I think a Hellcat also set a new Challenger record of 9.5 (someone can correct me if I'm wrong on that time), but we missed that run. Really good time, just wish it a bit warmer!

    No, they were doing race runs where you pay $140 and do paratactic runs and then all the run off runs until a winner in your group. Looked like some of the Hellcats were stock with stock tires running in the low 11s.

    Our family had a Blast racing and meeting everyone already mentioned here in the thread at CF7/MSHS event! Such a Great Bunch of people/families:)

    We had plans on testing our cars before going to Bowling Green, but the weather here did not allow that to happen.:(
    It was a cold 46 degrees, damp cloudy day and with a head wind on Friday.
    Not much better on Sat for temp, but less wind and we had some sunshine now and then.
    TC my husband was racing, but also testing some changes.
    Me, the similar damp 46 degrees of when I broke my half shaft had me worried. :eek:
    A friend told me ET's would be about 1/10th off at BG from Cecil. As I got to know the track and feeling comfortable with it on Saturday, I finally got a couple of 9.81 slips.
    YAY!! And Nothing Broke!:D

    Our daughter Katelyn was racing a 2010 Furious Fuchsia SRT8.
    Last year while we were testing the R&D for Hell Cats, she was working hard learning bracket racing and practicing her reaction time.
    Katelyn entered 3 bracket races.
    2 of them she had 2nd place wins. Due to darkness she ended up sharing 1st place with a racer who she really was looking forward to line up against !
    (Don't worry guys, she doesn't own a Hell cat;))
    But she is Hellbent to win against him!:cool:
    Katelyn also cut an amazing 000 light!

    Nitewing It was a pleasure to meet you. You are an Awesomely Enthusiast Guy!
    Upon walking back to my car, I had already seen you grinning in the HHP Pits. Next I see you direct that never ending smile to me asking Linda?

    Yup, Hell Cats can do that!!!
    I bet you didn't stop smiling all day :D


    Linda:)

    Thanks, I had a great time up there! Still telling folks about it and meeting all you guys! Keep up the leading edge work!

    And I smile all day I'm around the Hellcat and being around as many as there were up that way was a blast!
