    For making it through the rounds all the way to the finals in X275 at Lights Out 9 this past weekend.

    Congrats, 48 cars in your class, that is pretty stout. What engine combo are you running? I was there with steve gorman racing in rvw and it was his 1st time on radials and he ended up #11 out of 58 cars. Had to lift in 1st round because of wheelie.
    Wish I could have met you. Come up north to yellowbullet in September and I will buy you a beer.

    I was very lucky to get to the Semi's and raced John Keesey and lost. Mr. Heckel has a bad fast car and I met his Dad before qualifying. He was very nice to share a moment of encouragement with me. There were many of the fastest X cars in the Country and It was fun competing with the best. Congrats Shane!!!

    Shane, I see your mustang popping up all over the internet. Ive seen a ton of Radial drag site shares and pic shares with links thru facebook and instagram. Your car is all over my feeds on both sites and i like it. Seems like you are pulling a lot of publicity and rep from this. Im curious... how does it compare to racing comp? Getting more recognition? More people aware of what you are doing?

    Craig, my heart will always be in Competition Eliminator. That's the class I grew up in and raced with my parents in. It will always be in my blood!
    But to answer your question. I can't believe the exposure that we have gotten with this car. I have received 278 friend request in the last 2 days on my Facebook page, it is kinda overwhelming to be honest with you! The downside is, NOBODY knew of our past racing history in Comp and Pro Stock (very briefly ) I must say that the crowd that we race with now is defiantly better at promoting their racers!
    I hope everyone that watched enjoyed the show as much as we did racing @ Lights Out 9...........
