With the help of Darrell Tedford and Rick McGee (Nostalgia Top Fuel racers), West dons his new firesuit and gets strapped in.

 

 


It's kinda tight in here!

 

 


 

 

 


 

 

 


Once testing was done and Dave was comfortable in the car they went for the real deal.

 


We're short on photos of this notebook event but here's a couple of good shots of action and result of Dave's first burnout.

Rick McGee and Dave push the car back to the trailer - the day a success. The car was disassembled for painting, upholstery and plating so it could be debuted (finished) during the 2001 NHRA Winternationals at the Wally Parks NHRA Motorsports Museum.
