All I saw was a 9.10 @ 146 on a questionable rocker.
From what he said in an interview he changed a couple and left one in to be changed later.

Jay got a nice interview spot on the live feed. Someone oiled down the track so they put on some "added footage". I've been sitting at work today with the live feed in my headphones. I haven't been able to catch Scott Millers Cougar or Doug's Mustang yet.

The very last pass of the day was a memorial pass for a racer who had been killed. His friends were racing his car and they packed the chutes with his ashes. It was a very cool tribute.

Scott Millers Cougar was earlier in the day......  Nice hook up.  Front wheels up off the staring line and a solid pull.  Unsure what his #'s were though

Anyone know what Scott's numbers were? I didn't see him run. Saw Jay and Joel and how about that run just before the memorial one where Lutz went 6.10 on his only pass with no chance to rerun.

Come on guys wake up: Jay left a questionable rocker on the opposite bank from where he changed the cam to work on (after the run of the day).
   I don't have a clue how involved it is to change one rocker on a SOHC

Hot Rod documented Jay's whole rocker debacle. I'm not sure I'd want the fanfare.  ;)

What's cool about those pics is that I have old pics of Dyno Don and Jon Kaase leaning almost identically over the fenders of his world-beating Pro Stock SOHC Maverick at the long closed US 30 drag strip in NW Indiana!

Jay is Dyno Don Nicholson incarnate I swear!

This year, we have two people from here in the mix.  Don Smith in a black Belair, running mid 10's and Tom Ciancitto in a 37 F1, running in the mid 9s.  Tom's been testing at the track here for a couple of weeks.
