We have just confirmed that I will be completing my license runs this weekend during the Stratford Spectacular weekend at the Grand Bend Motorplex.
I have been very fortunate over the years to be able to race my Meritor/ Euclid alcohol funny car at the great facility that Grand Bend Motorplex provides, but with a full season of commitments it is not possible for me to have my car at the NDRA race this weekend.
That being said, I have been blessed to be able to test Barry and Joni Patons top fuel car a couple of times over the summer to help them prepare for a races at which they have had some great success.
Even with the test passes, I have yet to secure my Top Fuel License. All that I have left is a 1000 foot run, and this weekend I will finally have the chance.
