Lots of visitors this weekend. Sean brought his boy Ethan by to see the car. He was celebrating his 3rd birthday and wanted to hang out with the guys. We wasted no time and sent Ethan in to check the flame holders on the J-79. Inspiring minds…that what we do!
Cale from Microsoft was in town on business and stopped by to see the Eagle. Cale has been instrumental with integrating the Eagle with the Microsoft Cloud.
The original Burien Boys stopped by again. This time they brought Alan Falcone with them. Alan, Steve Nolan and Dick St John are old drag racing buddies of Keith’s. Steve is taking delivery of a brand new East Texas Race Car later this month to compete in Super Stock.
