Add this to the list of things I've never seen. Two pro stock cars both puking on the burnout. All I can think about is the old Warren Johnson horizontal oil derrick quote.

Looking like last weekend was no fluke for Allen and Roy. Hope they continue to make strides.

15 Entered.... Shane Tucker was on that list but he never made a run. Don't know if he's even on the grounds.

John Gaydosh wounded his engine at E-Town, supposedly got it together and towed to Bristol... http://www.competitionplus.com/drag-...om-his-friends

....where he hurt it again on the burnout in Q1.

"Gaydosh Jr. stopped at the end of his burnout...the word is there are metal shavings on the track."

On AllAccess, during Q2 they said he was towing back home to Baltimore with the hope of returning to get a time in so he can race on Sunday.

Tall order. I wish him luck....

If he had metal shavings on the track, I'm thinking that it's a clutch issue or something mounted on the outside of the engine because there isn't an oil issue being an internal failure.

I may be wrong but I thought I read that last season, He was leasing an engine from the Grays? I maybe wrong?

The problem nowadays for small independent teams is leasing an engine from the "big 3" guys is that it is so expensive unless you have the sponsorship money to offset the cost, Your team is Bankrupt before you even pull that car off of the trailer!

Pro Stock is so broken it's not even funny. Went from my favorite class to becoming a total joke of a class.

Thanks NHRA for shoving Holley EFI down everyone's throats. Their support sucks!

Think outside of the dam box once in a while!!
