Rock on. Good luck out there!

8:00PM fuel food and poop in Caryville TN. Mud-covered ATVs at every gas pump. Friendly people, several appreciative comments on the car. Not quite halfway there. Probably stop for the night south of ATL.

About as OT as it gets, but that's good to hear.  My mom was born about 20 miles from there and I've always kind of wanted to see that part of the country just for giggles.

They're true. :-(

New rear bar made it significantly better. Four tires on ground through the entire first run.

New connecting rod knock makes second and subsequent runs impossible.

NO!!! That's the pits, man. You plan to send a drag pass? Or you hoping to keep the scattering bits un-scattered and salvage the engine for another event?

Well E36 M3. Oil starvation from too many Gs on a stock oil pan? Hopefully you can just roll new bearings in once you get home.

Check the oil for glitter. How much could one drag run hurt??? I got 11 rallycross runs on a knocking Porsche and still drove it off the trailer back home. (Knew it was gonna die, but let it go in glory.)
