The Good Neighbor Pharmacy/BG Oil Products Cobalt made some very impressive first runs on the new motor and Erica did a great job keeping the car in the groove running a 6.80 e.t. right out of the box. She also made some great passes in the Chevelle and had a little fun with Ron "Ronnie Racer" Walker as the two matched raced several times in the afternoon. At the end of the day it was Erica - 3 wins, Ronnie - 0. But Ron will be back! Watch out Erica...seems like there's always a Ford chasing you!
The day also marked the return of Kristy Roblee, back behind the wheel of the car she had driven to high school and had raced for many years. Since giving birth two years ago to her son, Dane, Kristy hasn't had the time to get back behind the wheel. But after just two passes she was back and put down the best numbers of the day, even a tad quicker than Erica! Nice job Kris; we're ready when you are!
Lastly, Keith Brown also made his debut in the Chevelle as he wanted to try his had at burning a little rubber. More on that next blog....
