Transmission won\'t get ou of 1st gear!

Somebody have any suggestions on what to look at? I can't seem to get my transmission out of 1st (or it might be stuck in 2nd) gear. It happened when I tried to race my uncle off the line . . . that was pretty stupid, I know. But it's done now, and need to fix it. Anyone ever had this happen before?
Thanks for any input!

80 CJ7 258w/TR,Holley carb,5" lift,33x12.5's.

How about helping us help you??

What tranny??

If it's the T176 4 speed, it's a common problem for it to jam up the shifter rods. You just need to pull the shifter lever out of the tranny and re-align the rods. But this is just a guess... because you have us clueless..
