anyone been to the track ?

We went to the drag strip last night for the 1st time. We had a great time. Alot of nice cars. I was able to make about 5 passes without a big line. Just wondering if anybody else had went?

Which track did you go to? I know Huntsville is back open, but I haven't added their schedule to the calendar yet.

we need to have a huntsville car scene night at the track. Samir - that would be cool if we could get our cars in for a half price night. I'm not crazy about running down the strip more than a couple times. It would be neat to have an organized event and them hook us up on the entry fee

I could try, but I have no clue who current management is of the track. I know Moulton might do something like this for us, but not too sure about Huntsville.

Wow, that's expensive. I remember when Test and Tune was just $5 or $10.

I guess its 15 to run your car, and gen. admission is 10 bucks. Maybe they could give us a deal since we could bring them some added cars that don't usually show up. We could do something at other tracks if HSV doesn't care for it. Just would be lots closer and a better chance to have a larger crowd.

If there's enough interest, I can talk with one of the people on hsvracing that was putting together a big street car shootout and see what can be done for a larger event with discounted entry. Well, I need to add when I get a chance. I'm buried up to the ceiling in work right now as it is.

I think there was one of these in Moulton just last weekend, but I don't remember.

No - full out slicks are not DOT. They have to have to be able to shed water. I was wondering about the Drag radials. Is they is or is they aint

I think Mickey Thompson ET Streets are DOT, so my thoughts were DOT/non-DOT would keep out the true drag slicks and the cars that need them to run good times.
