Bad Fast Is What They Were “Appalachian Hillbillies” Dinwiddie Wild Style

The third stop on the ADRL tour in 2010 was the fantastic drag strip located in Dinwiddie, VA just south of the staid old city of Richmond. This track was good to us last year for our first appearance there as an ADRL Pro Extreme racing team. It was where we shocked ourselves and everyone else around us by completely bypassing the 3.80 ET zone and running a 3.79 on the night qualifier!

The first two hits in qualifying were nothing to write home about and had left us on the non qualified list. But we redeemed ourselves a bit on the night qualifier yet again. A pedaling 3.89 along side the first Al Anabi Racing Team Camaro put us in the show where we would stay through the last qualifier on Saturday morning. Our 3.806 on Sat morning was real close to another 3.70 run for us but it was going to have to do. The bad thing about that 3.80 with a 6 run was the fact that we were only number eleven in the field of sixteen!!!!

Goforth Racing Post Race Wrap Up

Courtesy of Goforth Racing

Holdenville OK – Goforth Racing has had a couple busy weeks of racing, competing in both MMPSA at MIR, and going directly to the ADRL event in Virginia. The MMPSA event didn’t turn out the way we hoped, with Cary qualifying in the #5 Spot and Dean in the #7 position. “We really wanted to do well at this event to move up in the points, sometimes its just not our weekend” Goforth said.

Having already committed to running two races in the same area it made sense for us to travel straight from the MIR MMPSA event to Virginia Motorsports Park for the ADRL event. It makes for a long time away from home, but makes sense financially to stay in the area. The team wanted to have a good showing at ADRL and extend Cary’s points lead.
