I think I had heard that it was resurfaced in concrete, that will be nice.
The current car he is working on is the old car we had raced 2-3 years ago, he just switched from a 700" nitrous motor to a 670ish" with an F3R blower. We ran nitrous big blocks for many years, and finally just got tired of chasing the turbo cars and beating parts up. When you are running 3 systems of 600+ horse nitrous the tuning window is more of a peep hole, lol.
He had a 9 second 69 Chevelle he raced for several years up there. Then got more high maintenance and that's when he started having me help him, first it was an all steel 70 Nova with a 632, went in the 7.70's, then he sold that and bought a 69 El Camino and went in the 7.30's same motor, lighter car. Sold that (actually to a guy from BC that still has it I think, it's black now) and bought the current car (C5 vette bodied chassis race car) with a nearly turn key 707" nitrous motor.
We never had a proper season of testing and getting it dialed in, but ran a best of 7.20 at around 185 on two of three systems. It was a 6 second car easily had we got it down the track right.
He had issues again with the nitrous in Vegas and got fed up and finally just sold all of it, manifold, bottles, filling station, everything. Decided to go with an alcohol BBC with a blower.
It's been I guess three years now since we have raced, but we ran up in Mission at the pro street events and the Harley drags a few times, at Pacific here locally, and raced in the Street car super nationals in Vegas for about 5 years straight. (That's an awesome race, but hard to be competitive).
As it sits now it's pretty much all done, just some final items. The hard part is we have to start over with the chassis tuning, everything. Hopefully we can get it down the track clean this year when we do get out. Plus I have to learn how to tune the new bullet, never really messed with super chargers before. It's all internal combustion though....
I need to somehow find time too, like you said, it's a lot of commitment.
Here's a couple kind of crappy cell phone shots of the car as it sits and one of how it was a few years back.
When he first got it-
