Here is the pictures of the T-Bowl track drag, you are looking at the bottom of it, My Dad and I just finished welding 51' of 1-3/8" rebar to the bottom of it. The other dilemma is I will be leaving for California on Feb 6 and we need to have this implement picked up from my Dad's house in Clearwater and delivered to T-Bowl ASAP to allow them to fine tune the weight settings and start using it. If we need to add weight we can use logs or 55 gallon drums cut in half and fill them with dirt or concrete. This things is heavy, I estimate it to weigh 450lbs as it sits but the more wieght the faster it will work.

I'm not sure how well this is going to work but trying something is better than whining & complaining.

Any volunteers for picking this up and dropping it off to T-Bowl on your way to Jasper next wkend or any time this wk?

God Bless you.

I have been informed that the track drag has mobilized. Barring any enemy attacks, it should arrive at its destination very soon.

Many Many Thanks to Shawn, Gary (Shawn's Dad) and to Mr. Gulley who procured the equipment for delivery

Thanks Jennifer,
I expected nothing less than some chop busting from you, it's good to hear from you guys and it would be great to see you at the track again, we are racing on feb 20 can you guys come out?

Tell Teddy I welded 51' of 1&3/8" rebar to the bottom and it will be delivered tomorrow, we may need to add some weight to make it more effective and if we need to add spikes I will bring it back home and do just that.
