Whats the deal with the drag racing at carlisle? I plan on racing this year no matter what my dad bitches about, so what are the plans? Is everyone going to go to South Mountain again to run 1/8, or are we traveling to run 1/4 somewhere else?

I, for one, prefer the 1/8 mile since thats what I run on every week and what I have the car dialed to run on, but whatever anyone decides, I''m up for it.

1/4 mile! More track = More fun.
but more track=more time to have to dial in...that just means at the 1/4 mile, i'll have to hit the brakes harder...and the problem with that is on a 1/4 mile, the faster car is ALOT faster than me, and its real hard to judge a car thats flying up on you to still cross the line first.

no one cares about you and your bracket racing. I'm up for a 1/4 mile

There is 1/4 bracket racing also. At most tracks, if you are not into the 9.90s the only time you will run heads up is during time trials.

The Don!® is chiming in.

1/4 mile event at Maple Grove raceway. The reason is that South Mountain is a hole. No scoreboards, no PA, no clue. Besides, it is called the 1320' dance NOT the 660' :eviltongu dance! LOL

Maple Grove is a First Class professional race track. John Force, Tony Shoemaker, Warren (the professor) Johnson and the other real pros race there every year.

I will be making a trial run there in June (17th or 24th) to check out the procedure we will use for the evening. I am leaning towards the 24th instead of the previously scheduled 17th due to a conflict.

BTW It WILL be a test 'n' tune night but I am attempting to set up a bracket runoff for our clubs so that we can have a bracket champion. I need to know IF POSSIBLE the number of people that will attend. I will set up a separate thread for that momentarily.

Think the track will allow us to go based on a handicap system, or will it be REAL hard to tell...otherwise we may have to competition eliminator style...index each class and go first to the line no breakout

No indexes. Just bracket racing.
