Hi All,

Below are links to Jim Testa's website and he has graciously accepted to host these videos from Norwalk a couple weeks ago.

The cameraman is none other than the JCC own's Bobby Trieschman from NHRA today, nice job Bobby no one captures the spirit of drag racing videography and interviewing like you.

Bobby got clips of Art Paltz, Dave Fiscus, Ted A, Billy Anderson, myself as well as Bobby interview Artie Paltz for NHRA Today after his win.

Fun was had by all.............enjoy the videos:

Rob,

I was cutting in the area of .100-.115, not good by real pro standards but running a pro tree is quite different than what I am usually used to at Etown on a Saturday morning.

It's fun tho I like the challenge a pro tree gives me, I try to get better each time out.

rich thoes are lights to be proud of! i wish i could do that on a pro tree. i've never really got a chance to do a actual race with one (maybe 10 times?) but i've tried on my practice tree and i'm awful! maybe . 270's?

I try to get a little better each time out, I am leery of trying to take a shot at the tree in elims as I hate to take myself out of the race before it even starts.

Artie Putz is alot better than me on a pro tree, he cuts real pro like numbers and of course Dave Conley is better than both of us combined :D

Great videos.....Jim

Artie and Rich, outstanding interview and congratulations to the JCC.
>>>Thanks for the kind words. Artie and I are a good interview as we wing it off the cuff as we go, that's what makes for good comedy, no scripts allowed at the JCC.

Fun is out middle name at the JCC :D

You guy's are going to have to make a trip down to see us and make Jack come along. Last time he was down there was a mishap with a Pro 5.0 that closed the track for the night.

ps: We have reserved seating at Scores after hours for out of town guests.

>>> Scores.........oh no I couldn't possibly accompany you to scores................(pause)..................well OK I will..........lol.

If we can ever coordinate it we would have a great time at the track and hanging out.

I am sure Ed, Artie C and myself can maybe get down there one of these days and if you ever get to NJ stop by Rich's auto for a brew :cheers:

I have family in Mass and my wife has some in MD. Maybe we'll get up to see you guys and I would like to see Bill's shop too. He might even let me make a pass or two on the Dixie Chopper.
