First time at track with my stock srt8

Well guys i wanted to share my first track experience with you. I am more than happy with my first run ever in my life at 13.499, and my best of the day at 13.329. My only mod is a mopar cai. I was running pretty much full weight with over half a tank of fuel (but i removed my floor mats and rear cargo cover). The jeep was very hott, could not touch the intake manifold even before i started racing. So if i had come more prepared then im sure i could have run even faster. I met Chevsux at the track in Mission and he pulled off high 12's. Congrats Craig. The track according to what i found online is- elevation 465 ft and it was aprox 70deg F. i have attached my slips.

Nice run, I am looking to come up and run my jep on the mission track soon. Need to get more info on laws and regulations in Canada first. It will be my first time up there.

Mr. Moe be sure to msg me if you decide to come, i can meet up with you and head to the track. All you need is a passport to get through the border and tell them that you are going to watch the races in mission.
