Event Coverage reminder - Day of the Drags Returns! October 18 & 19th

Discussion in 'The Hokey Ass Message Board' started by beatnikontinental, Sep 5, 2008.

  1. Hey race fans - just a reminder the the Kontinentals Day of the Drag Race is coming up - October 18 & 19th - same format as last year - classes, cacklefest and exhibition runs on Saturday, then bracket racing on Sunday - should be a great time out at old Little River Dragway.

    some folks who didn't get to head out to the HAMB Drags - heres your chance to run down the strip - and see if you can come home with bragging rights, maybe a 100 MPH patch, or a little cash in your pocket (like our pal Casey did last year)

    all info is up at the updated website at:
    http://www.dayofthedrags.com/

    see ya'll soon!

  2. My favorite event of the year! I'm one of those who can never make it to MoKan.

    ive already been prepareing.. didnt make 11's last year but i got back and did some tuning and got where i wanted it to be. but thats never good enough in the past few days ive scraped the 1 5/8 headers and put 1 3/4 and some suspension tweaking and got the 60' time down 2/10. i also plan on chaining down the front end so it only has 3" of suspension travel and hopefully i can go mid 11's. well see.

    That 53 of yours is awesome for as heavy as it is (about 3500 lbs im guessing).The fact that you drive it to the races from Houston and back running in the 11's on just motor with only 3.70 gears is insane .I cant wait to see it in action again Ray...
     
  17. I am counting down the days like X-Mas. It will be a great time as always, thanks Kontinentals and see you soon.
