Default Went to the Drag Strip

Went to our local drag strip called "Numidia dragway" where every Friday you can run your car. I ran a 16.195 at 83.22 miles per hour for my best time. This was my first time ever and my reaction time was .035...not to bad for first time. I ran a total of four times and made it 2 rounds into the elimination and lost to a Malibu by 3/10's of a second.Now I know what you's are thinking..."He didn't run a 16 with the Ranger"....no shit lol, I was using this.

Yeah it is really fun. I had a blast. The $25.00 to run your car is def worth it.
