12 Second Bonneville

12 Second Bonneville 

INTENSE Racing rented out Norwalk Raceway for the day and invited a few of us locals (and some not so local) to come out and race. The car felt strong all day and got stronger with the cooler weather. Some small computer changes and a few smaller pulleys on the good ole Gen V supercharger and I came away with a personal best time of 12.986 @ 104.75. My season goal was to go 12’s and it finally happened with only one more track date to go. The motor is making some nice power and the winter will give me time to shore up the transaxle to hold it all.

Bonneville at Pontiac Nationals

Pontiac Nationals at Norwalk, Ohio this year was a record setter. Over 350 racers and many many more spectators and showcase cars. INTENSE Sponsored the FWD class and the Grand Prix’s and Bonnevilles showed up in force. I had a personal best of 13.23 @ 100.70. I also managed to make it to the semi finals in Saturday’s bracket race only to lose to the eventual winner.
