A longshot, but definitely a sentimental favorite for me as well.

But if Patrick Barnhill and Steve Summers are able to continue helping that team out, the chances for success improve immensely...

Neat to see him back in the saddle at the same track (Orlando) and run his personal 1/8th mile best of a 3.847 on his first pass at the track.

It will be interesting to see how he does at this weekend's NHRA Pro Mod Winter Warmup & NHRA Lucas Oil Divisional.

Billy Glidden's first qualifying pass at Orlando's Pro Mod Winter Warmup was a mid pack 5.97 @ 230 mph pass. Karl Steven ran 5.79 @ 255 in warm 83 degree temp. Looks like 19 cars made a 1st session pass. Q2 coming up.

Rusty is a welder at a non racing company and is a family man.

He was in Bliiy's pit at Indy a few years ago. Bill and Etta were there and I asked them if Rusty ever comes out the the races. Rusty turned around and said "I'm right here" as if I was a dumbass for not recognizing him. iF I remember right he's bald and certainly doesn't share the same bean pole body type as Bill and Billy.
