Update from Marina....
It feels like Christmas a lot around here lately. Thankfully not because of the snow anymore, but because of all the boxes that keep showing up! I am very excited to finally test the dragster this summer sometime. With only one more year left of college I am multi-tasking to the best of my ability with all the postitions I hold (student/intern/racecar owner & driver). Basically, means I am working constantly in the day driving from school to work to pick up clothes for the racecar crew. It's all worth it though!
The engine arrived shortly after Pomona thanks to Tony Zizzo who transported it. The engine came all the way from California because Jerry Darien built it, he has been a great help in the past few months and I couldn't be happier to have one of the best in the business willing to help out a 20 year old girl from the Midwest with a big dream.
I also received the MSD ignition parts and my safety equipment from Simpson. Safety first! I have been working on getting the seatbelts mounted in the car at the shop as well as beginning to put the Frantic Fueler back together for the season. Even if the car isn't complete yet, I'm glad racing season has started I'm going to be travelling to as many Division 3 Lucas Oil Series events as possible as well as FF races, XDRL, NHRA and ADRL (in the area). It's really an addiction.
As always it is a work in progress, but we are leaps closer to testing this summer!
