The opener for the CDBA was a good one on Fathers Day Weekend.  We analyzed the data and what we had learned from the May race in Bakersfield and applied it here and it worked very well.  On a beautiful Saturday we qualified for both Pro Eliminator (8sec bracket) with a 8.07et coming right off the trailer from the last race and in Super Eliminator (dial in bracket) with a 8.52 as the water condition got worse on this Saturday afternoon.  Again we analyzed the data from the QwikData 2 and applied it for Sunday morning.  We managed our way thru both Super Eliminator and Pro Eliminator elimination rounds and made our way to the final rounds in both classes averaging a 8.08et thru all the passes!
Super Eliminator Final Round we ran right on our number @ 8.053et with a .22 reaction time for the Win!  As we came in from the round the officials said we needed to head right back out for the Pro Eliminator Finals so we fueled in the lanes and changed the nitrous bottle out with a fresh one and back to the rope we went,  Knowing it was going to be a close race we added .050 more timer to the nitrous system to see if we could get closer to the 8 flat number.
Pro Eliminator final round we ran a 8.001et with a .170 reaction for the Win!!  Margin of victory was only .023 seconds – Very Close race as shown in the photo below.
Again thank you for your support!

Headed to the water!
