I know we've talked about this and people are interested. I want to set a date for us to all go to a drag strip and run our trucks. Looking through the local tracks and their schedules there isn't a whole lot of choices. I'm figuring due to work schedules and travel, most of us would prefer to do this on a Saturday or Sunday. I know for myself, Saturday is the best option, but I REALLY want to get back to drag racing so I'll go on a Sunday.
Here are the schedules for some of the local tracks:
Atlanta Dragway in Commerce, GA
Atlanta Dragway: Shedule of events
They seem to have test and tune on Friday evenings. Most of their Saturdays seem to filled with events.
Silver Dollar Raceway in Reynolds, GA
Silver Dollar Raceway - 2012 Schedule
Test and tune on Friday evenings. Some Saturday events we might be able to attend.
South Georgia Motorsports Park in Adel, GA
Dragstrip Schedule - South Georgia Motorsports Park in Cecil, Adel
Test and tune most Friday evenings. This I think could be our best shot. On Saturday, December 1st they have an all day test and tune event. December would give people pleanty of time to plan, and build if you want to modify before hand. Plus the cooler weather should really help us make the power and get great ETs. I've been to this track before and it is a very nice facility. Also brings in the possibility of doing a joint meet with guys from Florida.
Alabama International Dragway in Steele, AL
Test and tune on Friday evenings and on Sunday afternoons. This track provides the most options for dates. I've been to this track a handful of times before and it is a decent facility. The price to race has gone up drastically so I hope they've made some improvements.
Let me know what you guys think. I'd like to make this an official get together, but if we don't have the support/backing, I still want to go.
