Being drawn down the threat dragging Amanda on the track any handle as soon that would post bars on the track. Alien to you that the whole thing was what do I need to do special about it I've heard the story a million times. It took a grip on my dad and I think that was crazy about it was he said just don't stop because of his stops diesel slaughter the caller. So basically he's just make a pass slip fuel. A year as Vanessa could even do his back big east you can actually feel him pull. You could you dragging it to oracle to a plus pound man down the drag strip. So we don't really interests and learning courses still went just like planned and everything went great.
