Black Shadow banging on the door of a five

Quick update on the Black Shadows progress at the weekends Aeroflow Outlaw Nitro Funny event on the 7th of January. Steve was able to get the car into the B Final after getting past Sam Treasure and the Hemi Express in the elimination round in a paddle fest running a 6.611 @ 336.97 kph to run to Sam’s 7.023 @309.71kph. This was good enough for the 2nd spot in the B Final. In the B Final, Steve was able to run away from Pino Priolo and his 37 Chevrolet, running a new PB for both elapsed time and terminal speed. 6.044s @ 393.78 kph or 244.68mph. This beat the previous PB elapsed time that he was able to get in the compulsory qualifier earlier that day of 6.078. This follows Steve being able to get the Black shadow into the A Final of the Night of Fire event on Boxing Day but unfortunately Steve was unable to race 9-Time champ, John Zappia in the final but was called off due to rain. The third place position at this event should help Steve keep his 2nd place position in the state Top Comp championship which has be accomplished through the consistency of the 55 Chev going to finals this season.
