I'm glad to find this new forum. Hope to meet some out here in the West. I run my 55 Gasser "Black Betty", at Famoso in Bakersfield, and also up at Sacramento Raceway. She has a BBC, Glide, 9", and runs in the high 11.50's. So, we shoot for E-Gas (11.60), or Hot Rod Bracket class. Loads of fun!! Also capable of street, with 10:1 compression, but not currently tagged.
