Justin Lamb Presents this Month’s Guest Editorial for ThisIsBracketRacing.com Members
This months www.ThisIsBracketRacing.com guest editorial is penned by 8-time NHRA national event winner and 2011 NHRA Division 7 Competition Eliminator champion Justin Lamb. Lamb’s column is the first TIBR Guest Editorial to feature a new twist. Rather than focusing on a certain topic of instruction, TIBR has asked Lamb to select a specific event that he won, and detail his thoughts, strategies, and execution round-by-round for the TIBR audience. The result is an insightful look not only at the strategies that TIBR is known for, but also their real-world application by a well known and successful competitor. In his column, Justin Lamb details the 2010 NHRA Las Vegas Nationals, his hometown national event, in which he won Super Stock at the wheel of his Chevrolet Cobalt.
"Jim was dialed at a 10.56 which was .03 quicker than he had run the previous round. I doubled checked his MPH from previous rounds to determine that he had killed some ET in the previous round and in fact was only dialed down about .01 from what he had ran. With the change in weather I was still confident that he was going .02 or more over his dial in. As we went up to the starting line I was slightly more aggressive. It was a big race for me; my family was there, all my friends, and my dad’s customers. I wanted to win this round and make it to the final more than anything. The starting line chip was back where it was against Jimmy Defrank and I went for a light.."
