Jets Conclude Fall Races in Sacramento and Woodburn

We just returned from running two spectacular races – the 46th annual Governor’s Cup at Sacramento Raceway Park and the Fall Classic at Woodburn.
Good fortune in scheduling this year allowed us to participate in the Governor’s Cup. This race holds a lot of great memories for me – talking racing and planes with my pilot cohorts, Dave Smith and Darin Bay – to the overnight road trip. You see, many years ago, this event and the Woodburn Fall Classic were held on the same weekend and we attended both events. This involved racing Saturday night in Sacramento – loading up the cars and driving straight through to run Woodburn Sunday afternoon. The road trip was a crazy time with lots of interesting conversation, microwave burritos, cat naps and watching the sun rise.

This year’s “CUP” had everything this drag junky could ask for – Nitro and Funny Cars!! I was having so much fun watching the races that I almost forgot we were there to perform! Our good friend Derek Snelson did a superb job of kicking my tail as he herded the Incinerator twice to victory over me and the Devastator. Boy, that car has a really cool afterburner flame (I watched it go by twice)!!

The Fall Classic in Woodburn, Oregon, featured a great line-up of cars – Fuel Altereds, Funny Cars, Dragsters, Pro Mods and the 10.5 Outlaws! Two days of perfect weather and good friends. And now we’re off to our final race of 2015 – the 15th Annual NHRA Toyota Nationals, October 29 to November 1.

Hope to see ya at the races!
