MAPLE GROVE RACEWAY READING
PA OCT 2-5
10-04-14:: The last ride of the year was a wild one, for both cars. Too bad it didn't end better then it did.
We would like to thank the companies that had continued to support Arthur Gallant Racing during the year.
The third session wasn't what we were looking for, the car was dropping cylinders, but the good news we are in the field. First round will be later today.
Raining this morning, but word from NHRA is the Alcohol cars will get a third qualifying session today..
10-03-14:: Now that's better, in the second qualifying round the new car ran a 5.41 @261mph. The next qualifying run is Saturday at 10:00 am. For results check www.dragracecentral.com
Deja vu, the new car smoked the tire at the hit. They will be back at 3:50pm for round 2 of qualifying.
Here we go, first round of qualifying, we are ready to have a successful weekend
09-30-14:: Arthur is on his way to Reading PA for the NHRA Nationals
at Maple Grove Raceway. The new car
made three good runs at the last race in Charlotte, so we are looking forward to some good luck this weekend to go rounds. The new crew is all set to pull together to make this a great weekend, have some fun and win some rounds. There are 23 Alcohol Dragsters entered, to get into
16 spots, so it will be tough. The Alcohol cars run on Friday at 12:00 and again at 3:50pm. On Saturday they will run at 10:00am and first round is at 4:00pm. Lets hope the weather stays good and they have a nice smooth racing weekend.
09-13-14:: Again the new car got down the track. Although it was a losing run, it was a 5.41. We are very happy with the way the new car ran this weekend. YAY, again the new car went down the track. Not as good a the first pass, it went a 5.47 @260, but it didn't smoke the tires. Lets see
what happens later today in the first round.
YAY, finally the new car
performed. It ran a 5.36 @ 268 mph.
That puts them in the #5 spot. No matter what, they are in the field. The
track needed to be dried and looks like the Alcohol cars will have a shot at it and then a quick turnaround and
run again. We would like to thank all the companies that support Arthur Gallant Racing
09-12-14:: Now the thunder, lightning,rain, tornado warnings, halted the racing for today. The Alcohol cars lost both qualifying sessions for Friday.
Looks like the Alcohol cars are going to be losing a qualifying run
today because of weepers.
09-09-14:: After many weeks off, the team is off to the Pep Boys Carolina Nationals in Charlotte North Carolina Sept. 11-14th. We are hoping the new car gremlins have gone away. The alcohol cars are suppose to run Friday
at 11am and again at 5pm. Check dragracecentral for the results.
EASTERN REGIONAL ATCO DRAGWAY, ATCO
NJ AUG 1-3
08.02.14:: Well a 5.52 @264mph just wasn't good enough to get into the field. The new car is starting to turn the corner, just needs some more runs to get it back in the winners circle. We would like to thank the companies that continue to support Arthur Gallant Racing.
We are still singing the new car blues. After sitting in the rain for a day and a half, the car goes out and does a huge wheel stand.
After more rain today, the
track is dried and we are ready for some racing
Today at Atco was a washout
07.30.14:: The guys are off to an Eastern Regional race at Atco Dragway, Atco New Jersey. Everyone is excited because the last run on the new car at Epping New Hampshire was looking good, it was a 5.47.

Sat's eliminations will be at 5-7-9pm.

The Lobster, Steak cookout was a great success. All the
Alcohol teams had a great time. Q1
the new car ran a 5.51. That was the good new, the bad news, there was a hole in the side of the block where a piston came through. The guys had plenty of time and changed the motor.
Then in Q2 the motor was just on the edge and smoked the tires, but we still remained in the field. Today first
round will be at 5pm. Maybe we will get a little luck and get by first round.
For results check www.dragracecentral.com
07.18.14::Thursday's testing was great, no tire smoke and the 60 foot
times were good, progress... Today
is qualifying, so we will see what happens. After qualifying tonight Arthur Gallant Racing and Dan Page Racecars will host a Steak and Lobster cookout for all the Alcohol teams at the Regional race. This is the third annual cookout and it's enjoyed by all the teams.

We have been having wild weather around here daily, hopefully it has calmed down today. Tomorrow is testing day, to see if the tweaking has helped the new car. The Alcohol cars have two qualifying runs on Friday at 1 and 6 pm. Check for results on www.dragracecentral.com
07.13.14:: Three successful runs, with no tire smoke. Still needs some tweaking, as the car is down on power. All the equipment was left at the track, as New England Dragway is
our home track and we will be back there in three days. Looking promising
Testing today at New England Dragway today, Arthur needs
more runs to see if he can get the new car to go down the track, to get ready for the Regional race on July18th.

07.05.14:: Progress was made, kind of. The new car qualified for the race, but lost first round as the car smoked the tires again. Things are looking up with the new car, just needs a few more runs to work out the bugs. We would like to thank all the companies that continue to support Arthur Gallant Racing.
The new car again went down the track with a 5.48 @252mph.

car can handle. For results check
07.04.14:: Woo Hoo in qual 2 the new car got down the track with a 5.46 @258 mph. Great maybe that was the turn around we needed. We'll have another qual run on Saturday at 12:00. Hope we can improve on that time.
Qual 1 didn't start out very good, smoked the tires. Be back later today for qual2
We are having Hurricane Arthur at home, so maybe we will have a Hurricane Arthur in Norwalk
tuning the new car. The new car is totally different than the old car and
there is a learning curve that goes with it. The first chance to see if the changes Arthur has made are going to work out will be Friday at 12:30, then again at 3:30 pm. Check for results at
07.01.14:: Part of the team has reached Summit Motorsports Park.

first round of the Jeg's Allstar race.
So Dan smoked the tires against
Randy Meyer. That means he lost the
Jeg's Allstars and also DNQ'd for the
race. I guess the team will move on
to Norwalk Ohio for next weeks National event. Seems the new car needs some more runs on it to figure
it out. We would like to thank all
the companies that support Arthur
06.27.14::Qual 2 went a little better,
a 5.55. Now the new car has four runs
on it. Takes time to figure out the new fuel system. Tomorrow the guys
get to run again.

car, smoked the tires in qual 1.
Later today they will try again to get
down the track.

but we are very happy with the first

It's going to be a very tough weekend
