 YES, SHE DID IT!!!!!! TODAY ( 26TH OCTOBER, 2008), CAMDEN WAS TREATED TO YET ANOTHER RECORD. THE FASTEST 1/4 MILE PASS BY A WOMAN IN TRINIDAD AND TOBAGO AND MAYBE IN THE ENGLISH SPEAKING CARIBBEAN (TO BE CONFIRMED).

 PILOTING THE MINT CAR RAIL (SPECIALLY TUNED BY MICHAEL LUKE AND THE MINTCARS RACING TEAM FOR TODAY), MISHA DID A BLISTERING 8.028. NO ONE LEFT THE FIELD AS EVERYONE WAS ANTICIPATING A SEVEN SECOND RUN BY HER. SHE DID NOT DISSAPOINT ANYONE, ESPECIALLY HERSELF AS SHE HAD SET A GOAL OF AT LEAST ONE SEVEN SECOND RUN BEFORE HER 18TH BIRTHDAY.

   CONGRATULATIONS ARE IN ORDER.

 

APERSONAL BEST   8.104 SECO

CAMDEN RACEWAY  OCTOBER 5th, 2008

 

AFTER MANY RACES OVER THE LAST COUPLE OF MONTHS, EVEN THOUGH MISHA WAS TIRED SHE BRAVED ALL TO SUPPORT THE FUND RAISER FOR JAMEER AT CAMDEN. THERE WERE A COUPLE OF MINOR PROBLEMS IN HER FIRST FEW PASSES BUT IT WAS WORTH THE WAIT. SHE RAN HER PERSONAL BEST THUS FAR, HAVING TO SHUT DOWN BEFORE THE FINISH LINE BECAUSE OF A BACKFIRE IN THE CARBURETOR.

THE TRACK WAS WELL PREPED WITH TRACK BITE GIVING HER ALL THE TRACTION SHE NEEDED FOR A 8.104 SEC RUN. ALL CONDITIONS CAME TOGETHER AT THE SAME TIME, TRACK, LAUNCH , WEATHER, TUNING AND DRIVING. IT WAS A SPECTACLE TO BEHOLD BUT ONLY A TEASER OF WHAT IS TO COME. HER GOAL THIS YEAR AND BEFORE THE SEASON ENDS IS TO TOUCH INTO 7's BEFORE HER 18th BIRTHDAY.

WE WISH HER THE BEST OF LUCK AND KNOWS THAT SHE CAN DO IT.

 

 

CAMDEN RACEWAY  JULY 20th, 2008

MISHA WAS IN THE DRIVER'S SEAT ONCE MORE AT CAMDEN ON SUNDAY 20TH JULY. AFTER A LAY-OFF (SINCE GRENADA) AND SOME PREVIOUS RAINY DAYS, SHE FINALLY GOT BACK IN THE CAR AND DID A FEW PASSES, 9.8, 9.5 AND 9.4 sec. WITHOUT NOS AND A DE-TUNED CAR. THE TRACK WAS NOT PREPED FOR HIGH POWERED CARS AND THERE WAS LITTLE OR NO TRACTION. SHE DID CAPTURE THE FASTEST WOMAN OF THE DAY PRIZE. SHE WILL BE IN ACTION AGAIN SOON AT CAMDEN.
