This is a special event. They used to have a test and tune night as well, but I can't find any info on their web site about it.

At the last event, the heads up ran well into the evening cancelling the grudge racing.

no they normally have test and tune on Saturday nights... but the 17th they're having a race that night

I haven't been to Moulton in a couple of years, however, I will say, the last time I went... they had some white knuckle racing... some very close classes and even though it was 1/8th mile, one of the most entertaining races I had been to in a while... I definitely felt I got my money's worth... and I just remember Shane Stacks and his fast Monte putting a hurt on everyone...

couple of weeks later I went to I-22... he won the money there too(it was on video)

^ that was a slow run, he'd went 4.28 on the night

It's open LATE since they have the circle track next door making just as much noise as the dragstrip, lol. There's advantages to being out in the middle of nowhere.

Well the previous rules was basically run what you brought as long as it had a door. He showed up resulting in the new no pro mod and no blown hemi's rule.

those rolls ups were from the pre stage light to the stage light... its pro tree so no "count down" of lights... once you get staged, its on

and Moulton is out on the middle of nowhere, but the last time I was there the track was pretty nice actually... I had went there years before when the previous owners had it and well, you'd been better of racing on the gravel road next to the track, lol... it was TERRIBLE... I mean other than you COULDN'T hook, it had a hump in the middle of it, the lanes were too narrow, and the shut down area was confusing... well other than that... great track, lol

but the last trip(in which I was skeptical at best but had heard major improvements had been done and new owners) was a redemption trip, it was NOT the same track it was 5 years before

i've still yet to run on the new track, but from the people I know who have(and ran on it years ago as well), they say its a pretty decent track now... especially for its location

I do remember a Orange Gen 2 Camaro that was dominating True Street up there, everyone claimed he was cheating and I know he ended up getting busted having Lexan glass, but from what I had heard, he replaced it and was running just as fast, lol... I never heard if they caught him further bending the rules, etc... I just remember the guy who was sitting with me was whining all night about him "cheating" mostly because his brother-in-law got sent packing for the night by him, lol... but I do know the Lexan glass incident happened, from several sources on that one
