We just got back from the trip to Brainerd! It was honestly a very good experience. We had a couple of setbacks that we are taking back as learnings. Fortunately we were able to fix them on while at the track and qualify with a 5.54 at 229. It was our best run ever and I lifted just a little early. Going into first round we tried our best but the car dropped a couple holes and ran a similar 5.58 to the number one qualifiers 5.26.
Just prior to round one on Saturday night we learned that we were the recipient of the Edelbrock Never Rest Performer for the weekend! I am honestly so humbled that we got this honor and that we got to take home a mini wally from our first race! It was a huge learning experience. We didn't break anything, we went faster than we ever have and figured out a couple things on the car. This is a car we built on a very low budget, but with lots of heart, hard work and dedication. This is just the beginning for me and the Anderson Family Dragster team. I'm so addicted and will keep working until this car goes fast but I am really proud with how far it's come in the 2017 season. I'm very thankful for all of our supporters especially the crew, the teams that have helped push us in the right direction, Comp Fab, Zrodz, PMP, Champion Auto Parts, and Goodson.
