It is hard to believe that a race car can teach you so many lessons of life. Patience, commitment, and determination are all virtues that we have learned in building, tuning and running the Charleston 9 “Never Forget” Camaro and tonight it all finally paid off. Our hot rod ripped off a 4.92 second pass tonight while competing in the Top 8 Doorslammers race at Dorchester Dragway. It was good enough to put us second in the qualifying order. Unfortunately, the track conditions prevented the completion of the race but we’ll go on to Fayetteville, NC for the next race on September 18. This run was our first in the 4 second range and a goal we have been working on for several years. R.I.P. Charleston 9. This one was for you!
