    Larry, I would like to run the A100 in the 1/8. No side window glass. Have all the rest of the stuff to pass tech. Its a '67 so little too new but looks the part. Sorry, it doesn't pull the wheels.....

    Same as always. We'll be there the night before hanging out. You can show up, camp & make some passes under the lights with the Friday night crowd if you want.

    Anyone know if we need a Snell rating on the helmet to race 1/8 mile? I want to wear my old flake one but could bring another semi legal one just in case...

  29. Switched the wheels and tires out last night to the racing stuff and took care of a couple maintenance items, ready for a little racin' now. (excuse the fuzzy pics, they were taken with my cell phone in the dark ;) )

    He has gate time listed as 5, but I dont think they will lock anyone out if you are camping for Saturday.
    They will just ask you to come up & get a wristband.
