Hmmmm.  That black smoke looks awfully familiar....Could that be a "dump" of fuel at throttle?  Running rich?

I'm here Jody, I don't think that's right. What readings are you using ?

It was 1700' when I looked earlier in the day.  I have no idea except for what I saw.  Maybe it was wrong?

Yeah, not trying to shoot the messenger Jody. I'm guessing looking at it the calculator was behind on the temperature it was using at the time. Thanks for following along. Jay & Steve made it back to the hotel last night fine. Joel had charging system troubles last night, but far as I know they made it back. The track opens at 11:30am today and we start running at 1:30pm.

I have that site linked from the front page of the track web site here.  BTW, it's cool this AM, clean air and a fantastic 2981 DA.  Problem this summer has been that the DA at the airport 10 miles from the track might be 3000 and the track 4500 because it's raining at the airport and not at the track LOL.  So it depends on where you get the reading because airdensityonline gets it's data from the closest reporting NWS weather station, NOT the track it's self.

This is what great 3500 DA does to my bitty 300HP 302 car:
