    Done deal.
    I'm getting married two weeks after the HAMB Drags, so this trip (and Bonneville Speed week) will be a bit of a bachelor party :)

  4. I'm in....BTW, if you call LaQuinta make sure the clerk knows you're with "Ryan's group" as the guy called us. Regular rooms are sold out for that weekend.
    Can't wait!!!!!!

    LaQuinta seems to be on top of things.

    When I told the lady what day I wanted to check in she immediately asked if I was with the H.A.M.B. Drags. She already had all the information; i.e., check in and check out dates, reduced room rate, etc.

    All she needed was name, card #, phone #, and email address to send confirmation # to.

    Took about one minute to have the reservation complete.

    Same here. Once I gave her my info I had a confirmation emailed before she hung up the phone. And the rates are cheaper than Booking.com's special deals. Now we just need to get my little bro's coupe ready!

    Just curious as to how long before I would know if my ride was accepted for the HAMB drags. Finally looks like I can get away this year. Trying to set up time off. Checked my spam, haven't seen anything. Been a week or so.

    What’s the hotel rate anyways? When I made my reservations they didn’t have the special rate set up yet they told me to call later to change the rate to the HAMB drags rate.

    Yeah. $99 room plus $11.86 tax per night. If I understood correctly all hamb drags rooms have two beds; no king rooms.

    What kind of ET does your little 40 coupe run? We might have to line em up.

    It's run a best of 12.75 at Mokan on the white wall Cokers but it usually runs low-mid 13's there. I kept telling Ben " I swear it'll run 12's" and I could never get in the 12's there until last year. My 60' times could be clocked with a sundial there. But I have ran in the 12's at the meltdown Drags numerous times. I meant to make a torque arm for mine like the one you did but I've been lazy and haven't done it yet.

    This may not be the place but I need the exposure here. So please bear with me.

    I have found myself in a spot this year. My time is or the lack there of is not going to allow me to be at the HAMB Drags this year. What that means in the real world is that unless I can find a substitute me there is not going to be a Yay-Hoo Cup run this year.

    Hopefully someone will step in but so far that person or persons has been elusive. So you may not be able to run for the cup this year. I am just wanting to get this out there in time for someone to take up the slack and keep everyone informed.

    What’s involved in doing it? I usually have my canopy and am already pitted in the same area as your table and sign in sheet. I could probably at least help out some?

    Beano is pretty busy so I’ll chime in and he can correct me when he gets time.

    You would need to set up a registration table, he normally did this at the hotel parking lot the night before as well as track side in the pit.

    Have everyone write down name/ car/ distance they drove the car to the track- minimum 150 miles

    Have them come back with timing slips and write down the passes next to their name

    End of the day track down the quickest one and award the trophy- which I think stays with the person running the contest but the winner gets their name added to the trophy via small plaque.

    Make new plaque to add to the trophy, they are small so probably fairly cheap.

    Post online who won with times and photos.

    Drinking from said cup is generally not advisable for your health but it generally happens.

    Anything more than that is up to you. The last few years a few years I, Neko, and Beaner came up with free yearly stickers for those competing

    Well, I can definitely do at least some of that. The stickers and the registration and posting of pictures of winner parts for sure. The new plaque for the trophy I’m not sure about. Where does the trophy reside? Would I have to pick it up and get it to the track?

    My tongue is still messed up from doing that. Do so at your own risk.

    Beaner has the trophy right now, there’s probably a back log on getting the names added so I wouldn’t worry to awful much.

    The trophy is currently in Kansas City with Beaner, he’s moving out of the city but if @flamedabone wants to pick it up while he’s passing threw I can hold onto it until he’s in town.

    I’m not sure if I’ll make the drags this year or I’d just Bring it down myself/ help run the cup

    Well I’m happy to do the registration, decals, keeping track of the ET’s reported in and posting winners pictures. I’m coming from the east though, so picking it up is a problem for me if it’s in KC. If someone can get it there or to the LaQuinta I think we would be good.

    At least I’ll get to touch it since I can’t ever seem to go even remotely fast enough to win every year

    I make the dash plaque every year (free of charge) for the winner. I am happy to continue that if needed.

    Tim got it pretty well. Basically aside from the registration we try to hook up under the canopy Saturday night @9:00 PM for pics and grins with the winner and anyone else who is totally insane.

    I'll check messages and get back with everyone. We can work this out we are the HAMB. ;)
