    Ok, just found out from Paul that it is the growth of the drags that is the problem. City of Salina wants more porta pots, insurance, security, ect.....

  14. I didn't go to these drags when it was free.
    I'll go to MoKan when I want drags.
    I come to Salina to see Taildraggers and Lead Sleds.

    Looks like to me the Drags has grown to a point that it needs upgrades (porta pots,
    security etc.,) we shouldnt expect to have the Titus to poney up and pay it. If the
    drags are as kool as every one says then it will contnue to be kool. They're maybe less
    people to watch and thats not going to hurt the Kool factor.

    I did hear comments that the show was worth the entry fee just for Friday night Drags.
    If that is the case then it will still be kool. I've never attended the Drags because I'm there
    for the Kustoms and Hot Rods. The Spectacular is the Koolest Kustom show in the Mid West
    and the drags is the Cherry on top.

    Looking forward to this weekend, I'll be there within 24 hours.

    Happy Trails, Mick

    the drags there are worth the 400+ mile trip & $10 for me, let alone the badass car show...... Not everyday you get to go see the show cars perform as well :)

    You see all kinds of crazy stuff out there like old farm trucks w/ toppers wasting any competition to bare ass's in a big sombrero hanging out of a 4 door caddy last year too at no extra cost..... too weird!
     
  19. Paul, is the 10 bucks for spectators or racers or both?

    Not going to make it this year but I wouldn't have any problem paying 10 bucks for a car load of people to go down the strip. Hell, have all the hikers pay a dollar to ride down you probably make money. I can see it needing some up grades. Alot of brews are drank and not enough shitters around to get rid of it with out walking a distance. You all stay cool man, 2 beers 1 water and you'll go all day.

    I'm pretty sure it's just for the draggers. Been wrong many times before though.
