Ok fellas I don't like hype and I don't doubt that you don't either, so let me keep this simple: Gotta drive your car to the event (at least 150 miles) ( this is on the honor system) Gotta sign up to be a contender Gotta update the sign-up sheet with your ET info... have the slip handy, just in case The quickest pass by a contender is deemed that year's Cup Champion The champ gets their name added to The Cup The champ also (eventually) gets a dash plaque to commemorate the victory... but we admit that we're backlogged on these STILL READING????? Here's the deal if you drive your car and are not afraid to run it then this is for you. You have already signed up for the HAMB Drags, the Boss (@Ryan ) has already given you a wink and a nod. You are bat shit crazy and decided that driving your car to Joplin is tits. All that's left is to find us, sign up (preferably before your first pass), then run the guts out of your old heap. Never raced a day in your life? Well you're not getting any younger, and if you tell one of us we'll make sure someone shows you where the staging lanes are. I know you're worried about breaking you car. its just a damned old car and since the first cup in '09 everyone has made it home again. granted a couple of the fellas have limped it home ( ask Jeff @flamedabone ) but end of the day its just a damned old car and you built it the first time right? Now do the 'beaner a favor and show your nutz, UH that you're nutz. This is your chance to ask questions and talk some smack. Well I guess talking smack is showing your ass isn't it. So I'll start, you're lucky I'm not racing, I always win. Good luck fellas, see you in Joplin. From post #38 "Now I think it is understood but just to be clear, there is NO CHARGE to be a Contender for the YAY-HOO CUP. We shoulder what little expense that there is, sometimes we have to be creative. LOL But you must be registered for the HAMB Drags. That is between you and the Boss. You fill out the form, send your cash and he decides if your car fits the HAMB Drags criteria. If your car does not make the cut you don't loose anything. Pre-registry is a WIN WIN for everyone involved."
