Bad news

Went down to Mir at budd creek last for Pinks . Ran on Friday testing 3 runs 10.60, 10.64, 10.65 et . Hot weather on friday, 3rd run car missing. Not a plugs wire. 5# cyl exhaust broken roller lifter. The camshaft also may be bad. Pull the cleveland out start today will finish on Monday evening. Best time with the motor was 10.34 @129 mph in cool weather this year. All good things must come to a end. Hope to be back soon. Thanks to all my friends for helping out .
