Tom (wickedwrx02) and I are thinking of holding a meet followed by a trip to a local dragstrip on a Friday afternoon/evening.
The gathering would begin around 5 or 6 PM in Nottingham PA park (or maybe Oxford PA park) both located right off 1 North and 272 or 472 in SE PA. I'll even break down and supply munchies and liquids.
After we had all gathered and gotten fed/stared at, we would then caravan over to Cecil County Dragway, which is about 15 minutes away from either location.
I'm sending this out to see if there are any interested parties. We are thinking a Friday because the track fee is much lower than on a Saturday (I believe it is $12 vs $35). Tom thought that we would get more of a draw if we went on a lower fee night. Fridays are typically test and tune/grudge match, with a gamblers race through in sometimes. Speaking from experience (thanks for the shoes Tom!!), long pants/sweats and shoes are required. Also, helmets are needed for those who can bust a 13.9 (Jim, me, Seth
, Tom, and Drizze to name a few).
If we choose a Friday, the best night would probably be August 1st, as far as the track schedule goes (www.cecilcountydragway.com). I'm certainly open to a Saturday personally, and I bet I could twist Tom's arm to convince him too. Gates open at 5 PM (and they are NEVER on time) Friday night. Lots of seating for GF/Wife/kids and there is also a refreshment stand. Plus, you get to but the hurtin' on many b-body wannabees.
I was thinking maybe we could even get a kitty going for awarding to the most consistent times over 3 (you choose 'em) runs.
If you think you might be interested, just post to this thread with a name and a count, and let me know what night or even date would work best. I'll give it a few days and see how it looks.
Maybe we'll even get to see Jim with the new turbo on by then...now that would be worth 12 bucks!! From the sounds of it, it might be about a buck a second!!!
The last 2 meets have been pretty good, and I'd like to continue the effort/good times made/had by everyone. BTW...the invite is to the SRT-4 crowd too. I for one want to see you guys in action!
