Rockytopper, I am sure there are some pretty cool stories, near misses ect...I would roll out on the starting line, then put my foot in it. That race is during the heat of the day, so having an asphalt track...its just a peddle fest!
JT to bad your ride is on the blink. Gas Monkey Live is hosting a car show Saturday and Drag racing Friday evening at Ennis this weekend. I have never heard of the sponsor but they are claiming it is a national event and folks are coming from the east and west coast. May all just be hype who knows. I'm thanking about taking my cutlass out Friday night and see if my (skinny buddy can get her in the low 13's) lol. With my big self driving 13.71 @ 101 is the best she ever done to date. Here is the link to the event. http://gasmonkeybarngrill.com/event/...n-muscle-meet/
Sounds like a good one. I have been to GM a couple of times...I would like to see my car in the 1/4, but not sure they would let me run(no roll cage, and only lap belts). If so I would get one run in lol! Good Luck with yours. Show us some pics. As long as it doesn't rain on Sunday, will be taking my buddies TT 63 nova to kennadale.

My favorite people at the corrupt NHRA will allow lap belts only and no bar until you go 11.49, it used to be 12.0. One of my drag only Z28s has what appears to be an NHRA license plate with No Hot Rods Allowed spelled out below.

57 Chevy 210 4-door sedan

2001 Porsche Boxster S
2003 Chevy Silverado 2500 HD Duramax
As long as I N/T the car...no issues. For safety it needs more. I'm in the 6's (1/8 mile). I probably need to build a true race car and just leave this one for the street and occasional show.
