HUGE THANK YOU to Interlake Dragway for making this day possible! More info on Interlake Dragway is available here: http://www.interlakedragway.com/


If you have any questions, please direct them to me.

I am doing this for free, not making a penny and taking time off work (costs me money) to do this, so the easier you guys make this for me the happier I am.

          I'm not sure.. That Friday they did last year was a last minute thing they did to make up for a weekend they got rained out. If they do one, I'll definitely let you know and post it here.

            • peg_pulsar has no influence.
            Is this a test and tune style? Or bracket racing? I'm assuming since you said 15 runs last year it's a test and tune?

                  Couple questions
                  The website for the dragway lists both the 25 and 26 as days for this. Is this true?
                  I have no idea how fast i could get to, I'd be taking it easy(first time), but are there any 'loaner' helmets(14sec)?
                  How long does the racing last? (i need to get time off work)
                  ok 3 questions.    Thanks

                    It is just the 25th of July, and a date in August.

                    No loaner helmets at the track, but occasionally somebody from here may lend one, but not sure.

                    Racing usually goes until 5 or 6 pm I believe.
