I will be on hand all day as an ambassador between Interlake Dragway and sport compact owners to answer questions or help with anything that may arise.

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.

      Might be worth a try if we can get the supra to pass tech @atticus.rascal

        Techs not hard to pass. Just make sure you're not leaking anything and the cars not falling apart. Also if you think the cars going to run faster than a 14.5 (iirc) you'll need a helmet so bring an approved helmet.
