Another Norwalk in the books!September 19, 2010
Dear ,

It seems that the older I get the faster the years seem to click by!  We have yet another Norwalk weekend in the books now and next year will be the 20th anniversary of the event.  Wow time sure does fly by! 


There were a lot of cars FLY'n at Norwalk as well.  The turnout was very good again at the event and it was nice to meet and talk to so many customers and friends.  There were quite a few performance milestones over the weekend (read below) and we brought out the newly wrapped Tin Indian Performance dragster for the first time as well.


All in all we had a fantastic weekend.  We hope you enjoyed the event as well.

I would like to take a moment to thank Chris Hunt and the Hammer Time Racing crew for running our vending area in the Vendor Midway.   For those who don't know, HTR is one of our authorized distributors and they tend to hit quite a few more events than we do over the course of the year.  If you missed them this year, make sure you check them out in 2011.  If it were not for Chris and the HTR crew, we more than likely would have not setup on the Vendor Midway.  Thanks again Hammer Time Racing!

TIP Digger gets a new look
 TIP Digger @ Norwalk 2010
We unveiled the new look of our Tin Indian Performance Dragster at this years event.  While we didn't break our previous record, we did qualify #2 in the KRE Quick 16 running a 6.88 @ 192.99!  We were pretty pleased running only .07 off of our quickest time ever when the DA was over 3000 feet!  We are hoping to get out once more this fall before we start looking for more POWER!
