They will be open all day.
Hopefully, parts are here today for the fix. If my truck makes it sign me up for the fire burn out, and im not to worried about the paint. It would be a cool pic in the shop, and might make the wife mad as a bonus. She asks why and I told her she wouldn't understand why.
For everyone attending read this.
They have no running water at the track. A few old anti freeze jugs full of water are needed.
They have bugs this time of year. Put some off in your trailer.
They don't serve beer at the track. A powerful thirst can develope bench racing. Come prepared.
Eating out of a taco truck and snack shack gets old after a day. Bring something to eat and drink.
Locals put down vht in small puddles after the water burnout. You can do it to just bring your own. It's not a requirement though.
Pack a good attitude and be ready for fun.
Tony I packed a few of these in case there's no room in your truck.
I have a little room is one of them nitro, i wound mind a jar of that to put on the shelf to tell stories about a guy i know.

I can’t wait for my son to see Bills car in action ! I remember backing up from it when I first seen him rev it up to launch , now some 30 years ago...... that car stuck in my memory. We are going have a great time. Many Thanks to you , Tyler & all the family to have given so much time time to provide many folks with a great place to go for good times & awesome memories. Plus my daughter just moved to Paragould so now I have a place I can stay ! Flux
Yep Bill Smiths 55 is sumthin else. I think all he has done is keep fixing whatever breaks. It still has a stock master cyl. After you see Bill launch it the first time you remember that!
Save me some.
Hey guys. I reckon you're all in for a hell of a weekend. Too bad I'm down in Oz and can't attend.
Run hard, have fun, and stay safe!
Got sent the wrong part, try again tomorrow. I planned on leaving at 8am, but now I am at the mercy of UPS, fingers crossed for early drop off. Still planning on leaving tomorrow just not sure when.
I'm ready to have fun. Leaving 5am Friday
As much as I would like to be there, it's just not on the cards for this year. Have fun, be safe and take lots of pictures for those of us who cant make it.
Wave when you go by, I will be under a dash or cutting hay.
Here’s a sneak peek with some lettering this is only temporary till the car is painted then comes the real gold leaf
Look great. I can't wait to see it.
reading and waiting, I hate waiting. If I don't get it done I will take something else.
Be sure to bring some fire extinguishers with you.
Already have them in the trailer
I wish there was live calera on this event.
Enjoy yourselves everybody, this is what reall dragracing is .
There will be camera crews capturing the action. Just wont be live. I will find out how to watch the action when its available.
Like many others that can't be there, I am looking forward to being able to see the action even if it isn't live!
Is there any way to tell the hamb. Members from every one else? Would be nice to put a face to the people we visit most e
Don't worry.... You tell cause we're the crazy ones running toward the VHT burnouts!
