Just finished shooting a movie last week based on the rivalry between Don Prudhomme and Tom McEwin back in the 60's and 70's. There were a lot a cars I could not shoot, but I could with this one. All the cars we had on this movie were the real ones from back in the day.

Thanks guys. I hope the movie turns out well. It was really fun to work on and shooting these cars and watching them run was awesome. I am a huge drag racing fan and racer and to be able to hang with Don, Tom, Ron Capps, and Dave McLeland was pretty dang cool.

They were all supposed to be off limits, but the owner of this car asked me to shoot it. It is mainly for secrecy to keep the cat in the bag as far as the movie is concerned. Very rarely are we allowed to shoot anything on set.

I am considering hitting up Comp Edge in the morning for a few hours if you are bored. I will see how I feel when I wake up.

I'd love to, but I am going to my sons HS Football passing games in the morning. When that is over I'm heading to Havasu to put my 455 together and istall it in my boat. I should be back tuesday or wednesday. Call me when you go out next and I'll try to go with ya.

I'll be at the X-Games in 2 weeks down on the track for womens sx and enduroX. Are you going?
