Hey folks, this event was posted originally under the Pre chapter OKLAHOMA g2g thread. We have about 10-15 trucks getting together on Satuday May 24th. Some will be running at the Sooner Motorplex in Lawton, OK. We are plannng on running the 1/8 mile track for those that would like too, followed by a get together at my house afterwards for a BBQ and some swimming. If we get enough Powerstroke.org Okies maybe this can also be used as a Chapter Event?

At the house it will be a family event/atmosphere so feel free to bring the little kids if you like to go swimming or play on the trampoline & playground. For those not interested in the track or don't want to drag the little kids to the track you can feel free to stay at the house & relaxe in the pool. I'm trying to get a neighbor to bring two ponies for the little ones to get a ride on and make the day fun for everyone. Tony Wildman will be coming so if you are interested in his tuning this might be a good oportunity to check it out or if you just want to see other Powerstrokes that are running all types of mods them come on down!:thumb: Jon Faubion Might be running his mustang as well. Either way this is a great opportunity so see Powerstokes modded for towing, racing, and any other reason. And a chance to meet & pick the brains of some of the 7.3L & 6.0L gurus.

Here is the link to one of his recent runs:

Luke Cline will be down - I think he is planning on bringing his 600+ HP 7.3L.

As always, all is depending on good weather. I'm not online much lately but Brant and some of the others know just as much about the get together as I do so please answere any questions I am not around to get to.

Alright. So far we have 12 Powerstrokes, one 9.5 sec 1/4 mile Mustang,one 2006 Corvette, approx 20 adults, 9 kids, 2 dogs, 1 cat and a fish.

How many people might be interested in running the 1/8th mile drag strip in Lawton(Saturday 24 May)? I'm just trying to get an idea on numbers, there is no commitment. I just want to throw some numbers at the track owner so they can try to race us as a group for those interested instead of just lineing up for the normal test & tune type setup.

Looks like it's shaping up to be a pretty decent event.

1/8 mile track
food
Chip burning

live tuning
more food/beer
A/E diagnostics
beer/food/beer
pool party
more chip burning for fine tuning

Only thing we don't have is a dyno. But we can use the gravel road to see who spits the stones the furthest. Any takers on standing downwind to feel the pellets? Might need a hockey mask......

haha, well, count me in as a possibility for running on the track -- as long as I can get some info on if things are shifting correctly... :)

Looks like Brian is coming up. His truck was just featured in Diesel Power mag. You gotta see the Ostrich Leather seats in person. Talk about sweet!
