Hello...any drag racers here?

Hi everyone. Just stumbled across this site today and already learned a few things and found a few questions I could have answered. My wife and I are drag racers (sanctioned tracks, not the street) and have each done well with our 2000 GC over the years. It currently has about 400 runs on it, along with being my daily driver and part time tow vehicle for my race truck. So far it has done everything well and I wouldn't trade if for anything....except maybe a 2011 or newer Hemi one day. Hopefully I'll learn some new things here and maybe help out someone who wants to do things I've already done.

Thanks! It's just a street driven '92 Dakota but it has nearly 3000 runs on it.

Welcome! I'm definitely an enthusiast, but I've never seen any Jeeps run! Bet it's fun to watch
