    Ok, Ginger...do you do bracket racing or heads up?

    What are the specs on your main car? I can't tell if it's a Nova from the pic :-)

    George!!!  I love your question!  Bracket racing is my main thing.  That Nova isn't quite fast enough to be competitive in heads up racing.

    Good eye!!  It's a 71 Nova, 355, 60 over, with Nitrous.  :D

    What's the faster MPH that you have clocked or does it not work like that?

    Side note, I don't know anything about cars.

    Side side note, I won the pinewood derby and that made me who I am today. THANK YOU!

    I am happy to give you a quick 101 on drag racing LOL.

    the fastest I have been is zero to 129 in 11 seconds.

    What is a Pinewood derby?  Like soapbox racing?

    What's soapbox racing? We are two different people.

    Pinewood Derby is where you have a kit to assemble a car out of a block of wood (the block is about the size of a smart phone) and the cars race downhill on a track that looks like something for matchbox cars.

    I looked up soapbox racing. That looks like fun.

    Oh!!!  I have of Pinewood racing.  Good job Matt!!

    Soapbox racing is kinda old school.  I've never done it.  I mean, Indiana is so flat, you need a big hill for that. LOL.

    My son drag races as well.  He had a jr Dragster as a child, now he has a 70 Nova.

    Who in your household gets to claim the record for most speeding tickets?

    Did you know there is a soapbox derby racing track along 30th Street on the west side of Indianapolis?
