    NOTE: DRAGS HAVE BEEN POSTPONED ONE WEEK TO OCT 17/18
    Man time flies. So The Kontinentals are hard at work preparing for the 13th annual Day of the Drag Race out at Temple Academy Dragway at Little River. It is Friday and Saturday Oct 17&18, 2014. All info can be found at www.dayofthedrags.com . There are a few changes this year, but the MAJOR CHANGE is due track safety and the fact that all of you building faster cars over the years, we will be RUNNING 1/8 MILE RACES as opposed to 1/4 mile that we have done in the past. The classes will be the same but we have tweaked the ET intervals to reflect the 1/8 MILE distance for the races. We are going to try this as many tracks are starting to do this for this at nostalgia events mainly due to safety reasons. The racing will still be competitive, you just wont have to hammer you car for so long.
    Gates will open on Friday Oct 17 around 3pm and the track will open approximately 6pm that day. There is camping at the track and also nearby hotels. The website has all the information so check it out and we will see you at the track.

  7. Man, where is everybody?
    Maybe the Kontinentals need to turn this into one of those yawn chair events at a superspeedway.:rolleyes:
     
  8. I have been there many times for dayofthedrags.used to compete with a flathead powered Prefect(4 dr Anglia) than ran high 14's at 90 mph with Muncie 4 spd. Will be there again with a different Prefect with a "wounded" big inch flatmotor.Car may be for sale less engine,trans; depends on how I am feeling.Am pretty bummed out to hear cars will only be running eighth mile instead of full quarter.

    I can't wait. I don't think my 235 is in any danger of going too fast, though.
     
  14. That's a bummer about the 1/8th. My car has a road gear, it doesn't get wound up until the 1/8th mark. I'm sure it'll still be a great event though!

    I must not know how to find stuff on the "new HAMB".....I have searched "traditional, custom and std hamb" and cannot pull up this page. Had to open a link that Tim Pogue sent me???

    Now back to the subject at hand
    The Flathead Fever FED will be at DOTD....as some of you know, I had a bit of a run in with a tractor 4 months ago, and I'm not quite up to "speed"(pun intended) to be able to drive the little Dragster.....but in the name of fun, I'm bringing it out, fitted to a "phantom driver" sometimes known to some as Kenneth Ryerson. We are gonna make some passes to see if we can stay on the "Collin Casey Fastest Flathead Trophy".....and if not, we will just make some passes "so we can smell some Nitro":cool:.....haha

    Looking forward to meeting up with y'all....strange being on the sidelines all summer. ....and looking forward to "Fajitas with the CamGrinders"(they think I'm one of them... I "showed up" in one of their shirts, and now they think I'm one of them....don't tell any of them:rolleyes:.....haha)
