Friday March 16th Track

I'm going to watch, not race. At least 6 other people that I know of from this forum are going. Dockboy (11 second 7.3L) should be there with his rebuilt motor, and will be his first passes on it(should be interesting!). I believe there is a slight possibility that he might go the 17th, but I think he's going the 16th... I'll confirm and update later.

Please check in here, and advise what your plans are.
Racing, not racing, time of arrival, place you will meet, if you'll be in your PS and if you want pics/video's or to meet up b4 the race etc... you might also want to post your phone # incase anything happens (very handy last weekend ) LOL! DITTY

I'll be home after 12pm on Friday, getting ready for this event. I have to get my camera's and laptop ready and I also plan to clean my truck. If anybody wants to come by b4 the races and wash their truck or just hang out before we go you can come over to my house. My phone # is 443 553 9234 for directions.

I plan to meet everybody at 5pm at Flying J and move on down to the track by about about 5:30. Anybody that is going that would like to get pictures of their trucks and/or video's let me know and we can do that also. Be sure to wear your Powerstroke.org attire if you have any!

Ok guys, check in begins here! Let us know what your plans are! Matt, Ditty, Dave, Brian, Eric, Greg and anybody else!

Count me in!!! I'll be at the Flying J at ABOUT 5pm. I can't make any promises due to traffic...but I'm planning on leaving at about 3pm to get there, maybe earlier! I'm going to take the toolbox and headache rack off (probably) as well as the exhaust (Muffler Back). I'm also in the works of getting some stock wheels and tires as well as a stock front bumper. (Got to loose some weight!) And maybe, just maybe, my turbo will be in!!!!

Count me in for sure! Marty, depending when I can get out of my in-laws shop (have to pay the Snap-on man) I might meet ya at your place...if not, I will be at the Flying J for sure at 5ish!

I want to race, probably going to leave my toolbox in cause I want to get time at "daily driving weight". But I am going to "thin out" whats in the box.

As we get closer, I'll let ya know where I'll meet ya'all!

Should be an awesome night!!

I should be there as a spectator, but if anything comes up I'll let you guys know.

Hey Marty, I'll shoot out of work around 3ish, ,maybe alittle earlier - go home and shower up, then book to your house? Sound good?

If this doesnt work out, I'll meet everyone up at Flying Js.


DITTY; think you'll have that exhaust piece you want made up by then?

Marty,

Put me down for the Flying J @ 5:00 with Ditty. I plan on racing at this point! I'm curious to see if this 8300 lb stock slug can break into the 17s.

I don't care about being fast as long as I'm still under warranty. Besides, I have experience being the slow ride. Back when I used to run a Mustang up there, I would always seem to get lined up with a sub 10 second car. Why can't I draw the old Honda Accord?

Marty,

I didn't realize how close you are to my buddy's house! He lives over on White Pine. He also spends a lot of time at the local watering hole behind your house (Pine Grove.... I think). You don't do any crabbing there downstream from the S@$# plant do you?

I should have that straight pipe by then. I'll bring it if I do. To minimize working on the truck in the dark, I'm going to pull the exhaust off before I drive up except for the muffler. I'll pull the muffler when I get to the Flying J. Sounds like it's going to be one heck of a good night.
