    Here's a tentative schedule..........
    Friday - gates open at 6pm, passes start at 7pm.
    Grudge races until 11pm.
    Tri-Fives will fire up a grill, and it's fajitas while they last.
    Torques fire up the stoves, and it's chili while it lasts. For you with sensitive stomachs, your gonna want Big Tony's stuff. Bring your own tums if your having mine.
    PLEASE REMEMBER - NO BOTTLES.........
    Saturday - gates open at 9a.m..........
    Tech & Time trials until noon-ish.
    Lunchtime - cacklefest with some of the sweetest Nitro cars around town......I love the smell of Nitro in the morning, hell, I love it any time of day.
    Eliminations should start around 1pm, and we should be wrapping up by 4/4:30.
    Car Show awards and 50/50 announcements about 2pm or 3pm.
    Race awards with Class Trophy presentation at 5pm, should be done and gone by 6pm.....
    This is going to be a blast, again......hope to see you all there.

    I am bringing the Red Rocket and will try to break the speed limit. The band is not playing this year. We are playing a big party in Richardson Saturday night at the Main St Liquid Company. Our buddy Spanky is having a birthday and all HAMBr's are invited out to party. Lets call it an unofficial afterparty......

    My five-year-old son has been anxious for weeks since I mentioned taking him to the races. His first drag race!

    AWESOME TIME FOLKS. It is ALWAYS a great time with friends and family.
    I would like to thank each and everyone of you that attended. We just dig having a blast with folks, and watching them make pass after pass.
    Thanks again.
    Special thanks to the Tri-Fives for the fajitas, Friday night. You folks that wait until Saturday, to attend, might want to reconsider your 2012 strategy.
    Want to thank the Chupacabras and 'THEM' for assisting with parking. I think we're onto something here..........
    Thanks to Don Ross, Bill Crosby, Ken Rierson, and Brian Perrenot for makin' folks eyes and noses burn with that 'oh-so-sweet' nitro.......awesome display, men (and Gretchen of course.)
    Thanks to all our sponsors and vendors............and every person that made passes all day long.
    The Torques thank you.
