About me and my car!

So what's up everyone? Well let me tell you a little bit about me and this blog. My name is Miles Lankford. I am a drag racer. Now I'm no professional, but I love racing. I started this blog to talk about the nights I race, how things went, how I did, how the car did, etc.. So you probably want to know what kind of car I drive. Well it is a Richard Steven's dragster, powered by a 496 Big Block Chevy. I have one sponsor: Shell Rotella T. I bracket race, normally at Mobile Dragway. But I have been to other places. I have a competition drivers license good for Super Comp and ET. The fastest I have been so far is a 4.67 at 127 at a 600 ft. track. I would like to pursue racing as a career. I'm a junior at the University of South Alabama majoring in Special Education. Well that's a little about me and my car. If you have in questions, just leave a comment!

Saturday May 29

Well it rained on us. We got to run the time trials and round 1 of elimination. I feel like me and the car are doing better. My lights are getting better and the car is running more consistent. So when only ended up running the first round. I ran a guy that had just got his car back together. He was there mainly just to test it out. So needless to say it was a easy round, and I mean easy. I had a 4.82 dial in. I cut a .016 light and light out half track to run a 4.87 at 116. He did not have a good light and I caught him right past half track and just lifted. It's a nice feeling to get an easy round every now and then. Because trust me at Mobile Dragway it is tough to win. Since it rained out after round all the winners split the pot. I walked away with $100. It's always good to walk away with more money then you took!
