    Event to be held in conjuction with Racer's Reunion from the long gone Camp Wheeler Drag Strip near Macon, GA and the almost as long gone Warner Robins Dragway near Warner Robins, GA. Both these groups have Facebook pages for further info. There will be a motorcade from the former location of Warner Robins Dragway to Silver Dollar Raceway on the morning of the event, see the Facebook page(s) for further info on this part of the event.
    There will be match races, grudge races, any kinda race you want as long as it's on the strip in a safe, sane manner. If your gearing is kinda short, you can run the eigth, or if your car is better on the quarter, then so be it!
    SDR is a fully NHRA certified track with more than adequate shutdown and deccel lanes, paved return roads, and NHRA Xmas tree and clocks. There is a covered grandstand, great concession stands with good eats, free camping Sat. night, and the finest genuine Southern couple, Ed and Dorothy Swearingen as track owners/promoters to welcome you.
    Questions are invited and we will do our best to give you a straight answer, if we don't have an answer, we'll get it for you.
    The SDR website has all sorts of additional info on local and nearby accomadations, and there are about 5000 motel rooms within 25 mmiles of this peaceful country paradise.

    Folks, Scot has given you a shot from left of the staging area above, and the whole place is as roomy as this. really a nice spot, just outside city limits of Reynolds.
     

  4. Here's a nice aerial pic of the track and facilities :cool:

    Note:

    *To the immediate left of the tower just out of view is Mrs. Dorothy's new souvenir shop. This is where to purchase souvenirs and electricity if you plan on bringing an RV that requires electrical hookup. They also have an RV station for dumping and fresh water on site.

    *Directly East of the stands is their very own "Hot Rod Cafe" that serves the best hamburgers, hot dogs and Coke products.

    Hard to believe it's been nine years since we came up from Florida for the first one.

    Josh, if you can also get Can-O-Worms down there, maybe you can bring fastest hot rod title back to GA.

    Mullette, I sure as hell hope no truck diving! If the Sock Fuckers can get as many cars to Reynolds as we got to SIM, we'll have a well represented club!

    By then I should have some small diameter slicks for my roadster so's I won't have to baby it off the line to keep from going up in smoke. Small dia. will hopefuly compensate at least partly for the too tall 3.70 rear gear.
    Also I have a friend here in town who drag races some bad ass nitrous cars at Reynolds and who has 4 scales so's I can balance out weight in hopes it'll help keep that rear straight when the tires do spin. Then I can talk some shit!

  18. I too need to try some shorter tires on my coupe. I believe those heavy 12" wide by 31.5" tall meats are slowing not only my reaction time but my 60' and overall 1/4 mile times a bit.

  19. One thing I don't want to do is be too fast to run without a cage or the such. Then it wouldn't be fun anymore.

    Last year after giving rides all day, on the last pass the timing lady said I was too fast for passengers. I told her that's alright we're done for today. :D

  22. Looking good brother :cool: Keep those tars on there and I'll show ya my tail lights ;) :D
     
  23. Lol you better let me see them before we get on the track
     
  24. Looks like I need a bigger rear view mirror, that sedan takes up more real estate than the truck :D :D
     
  25. You better bring your ear plugs and I will bring you a pic of the front of my sedan you can put it over your rear view mirror hehe
     
  26. Hopefully that perdy paint has cured by November, that way all we have to do is reattach your doors ;) :D :D

    How fast did you have to go brfore they said that was too fast for ride alongs, Scot? And I agree, I don't want a roll cage in a car I drive on the street either, If I ever got up to that kind of speed, then I'd put a throttle stop on
     
  28. You guys need shirts...
