Driver Blog Dopeness >>> Matt Field in the PNW

This was a long week, but totally worth it. With the car getting back from New Jersey Monday night at 11pm we had our work cut out for us. We were doing all the work out of Garage Autohero and there was a lot of work to be done. We brought up an assembled block with a crank and rods and pistons in it and had to switch everything over from my blown motor to this new bottom end. The motor exploding in Jersey really sucked; it took out 2 rods, cracked my block, wasted the crank, bent 2 valves, and wasted my cam. Improved Racing contacted me and sent me a new baffle for my oil pan. This is a trap door baffle so all the oil stays where it is supposed to. It looked like an awesome product and I couldn’t wait to try it out. So with lots and lots of new parts we got my new motor together. Lucas Oil provided us with some awesome break in oil that would speed up the process. This was a good thing seeing as we only had a few hours to break in the motor, get the car aligned, rebuild a bash bar, wrap  a bumper, fix fiberglass, fix taillights, oil change, clean up and get back at a decent time to get some sleep before Thursday practice. We finished everything and the car was set.
