I just spent 20 hours towing home from probably the greatest weekend of my life. The ltx shootout was the most fun I have ever had in racing, or in anything. I want to express my grattitude and thanks to everyone involved in running the shootout as well as all of the participants. It takes a lot of time and money to run this shootout as well as a lot of dedication from the event coordinator's like tony and kyle, not to mention they also race in it. I COULDNT imagine how crazy that must be.
Also it takes a lot of time and money for each participant to make it out there and compete, without that dedication from each and every participant and there own friends and family this event wouldn't happen. So thank you to every single racer and there friends and family.
I also would like to thank Beech Bend Raceway as well as Bowling Green KY as a community. Everyone there at the track and in Bowling Green welcomed us loud mouth crazy Yankee's from New England with open arms and were extremley nice. They even let me into the tower to get a print out of my final pass in street stock so i could dial my car for the bracket semi's, when I was up there i watched Mike V. my fellow new englander win Mod N/A for a 2nd year in a row. Congrats to him.
I want to congratulate all of the winners and runner ups. You did well for a reason, because of all of your hard work and dedication, enjoy it. You earned every last bit of it. Be happy. This is your moment in the sun.
The very best part of the shootout was the new friends I had made. Putting the faces to names was amazing. Just hanging out with all the fastest and most knowledgable LT1 enthusiests in the country was by far the best part of the entire trip and I want to thank you all for being my friend as i know i am a loud mouth asshole sometimes, i apologize i get very excited sometimes
Some people I want to thank personally:
Daren Poole - Adams and his wife/crew- I put that poor guy through hell on saturday but I believe we got the street stock class right and it went very well. We followed the rules that were set prior to the shootout and it worked perfect. Thanks again Daren for everything! and i apologize for my excitment i just wanted to make sure we finished the class correctly, like I said if we didnt weigh in there was an opportunity for cheating. I would NEVER do that but I wanted everyone in the class to be sure. That is the only reason i mandated a weigh in for every winner.
Tony Shepard - I must say myself my gf and my buddy thought you were by far the coolest most chill guy we have ever met. When I first met you i didnt even know it was you! i had no idea i was speaing to a legend. Thank you again for everything you do for us. You really are a great person deep down to the center of your heart.
Kyle Mechenzie (sp) - great guy! hard worker and was very nice when it came to giving me extra cool down time after the heads up final and before the bracket final. Thank you again Kyle.
Colin - haha your a funy guy and honestly imo had one of the best if not the best overall car at the shootout. im sorry about your trans misfortune but i believe you did the correct thing and didnt hurt it any worse.... haha i could sense i tiny bit of tension the night b4 with your guys and myself about who will run what. it was tinyyyy but we were all friendly and became good friends. I apologize again if i went a lil over the top with celebrating.... i was just wicked excited!
Casey (kall) - great race man you by far had the cleanest and fastest street stock car there. and i am glad you won in the car show and got fastest runner up. you fully deserved it. my car dosent compare and isnt even in the same league as your car. its a work of art and super fast!
Justin from GMHTP - what a great guy. I had some great convos with you and thought you were super cool and down to earth and i felt like i could relate to you wll. to be honest i wasn't expecting that at all. Thanks again man and im sure you got some super shots and the article will be amazing!If your ever in Boston give me a shout we'll get some beers!
Chris and Dave and everyone from Nitrous Outlet - AMAZING guys! chris is the life of the party and hilarious love that guy! i knew i shouldnt of sat on that cooler! lol Dave was sooo down to earth and cool and mellow. what a great guy! When it is time I will be going through them for all my nitrous needs and will recommend and even push people to go to them. GREAT GUYS!
All the street stock competitors - thank you for putting up with me and my loudness. I truly apologize if i offended anyone in any way. I had a great time and everyone had super fast cars. r/t's were very key. It was a great class with great stand up guys. Thanks again for coming out and making that little idea that started out as a poll thread on here a reality. Thanks again!
I want to send a special thanks to my parents, my amazing girlfriend samantha who was my crew cheif and spotter, it was the first time she has ever seen me race in competition and she was beyond amazing i couldnt get it done without her. i want to thank my best friend jordan for comin and helping with driving out there and back and everything. also All my good friends in Northeast F-Body Association; Pizza Mike, Kevo, Joe, Maddie, Alex and everyone! Don at Slowhawk performance for trying to fit me in for a dynotune just considering that was amazing, Yank for a killer converter that both the street stock finalists were running, John P. (1slowformula) and Shon Herron for all there wisdom and expirence that I learned from, Brad Noyzee and Noyzee Racing, i want to thank coastal customs, sullivan tire, and my current workplace TSD Rental Software for funding the trip and this car throughout the years of working. I have been blessed with health and happiness and this weekend i TRULY WAS LIVING A DREAM.
