Guys, the list has filled up drastically in the past couple of days. If you are still undecided, try to come to a decision quick. I think we may only have 6 spots left. After the limit is reached, the list will close and there will be no more participants added unless someone cancels. I will merge all the lists from all the different sites together and will also combine them with the list of offline participants as well and will post an update later this week.

On a side note, traction may be extra-enhanced this time around due to a couple of "drag" cars attending as special guests

Are you starting a guest list, or will it be open like last time. I'm definately coming, I've decided not to run the M3 yet.

There is no guest list this time around because we may actually merge two events together.... Last time we had to maintain a guest limit of 200 because we were limited on the number of employees. For this event, we don't have this problem. So all spectators are welcomed to attend. The track may charge $10 per spectator at the gate or whatever fee they decide. I will confirm all details probably 3 to 4 days before the event date.

I can't wait to meet everyone again and see them run

No, I didn't mean it dropped to 11 F, I meant it dropped by 11 F. Predictions used to say 68 F and now it says 57 F.... and who knows, maybe it'll drop to high 40s as well

any idea on what time the event will take place? i was just checking out the recent weather/DA according to http://www.dragtimes.com/da-density-...calculator.php and it's looking VERY good as long as things stay relatively the same or close to current conditions. the time frame for the event might sway the conditions one way or another though.

edit: hah, forgot which forum i was on. i think i've posted on 3 different versions of this thread

The exact time will likely not be confirmed until a couple of days before the event as it will depend on the weather conditions of the couple of nights before the 16th. I will update the thread as soon as I get a confirmation

Got a call earlier today from track owner and was informed that we are still a 100% go for the 16th. Weather is looking good and we may have a great day of racing to end the season and make no mistake, we will end it with a bang Our next major track rental won't be until November 2010 (11 months away ).

Last chance to submit payment is Wednesday night - 01/13/2010 as I have to give the money to track owner on Thursday morning. Please follow instructions before submitting payment through PayPal.

Thanks and looking forward to see everyone there....

Guys, I've been getting a lot of questions and concerns regarding the "rainy" weather on Saturday and whether the event was still on. So let me clear this up for everyone: as of right now we are still 100% ON for the event. As usual, the weather sites all disagree on how the weather is going to be on Saturday but I would not take them too seriously as they literally change every few hours as shown below. The track management team works very closely with a local weather station and they get their updates directly from them. So until they call me and say we can't race, which may or may not happen, the event is still on.

Here is the latest snapshot of weather.com, and as you can see, just two days ago, they were showing 50% chance of rain, then yesterday they were showing 40% and now they are down to 20%..... so they're definitely coming around


Weather.com


Accu Weather


Weather Underground



Now lets focus less on weather and more on breaking records , as this will be our last big event for the next 11 months!!!!!! Our cars will take a well-needed rest as the weather gets hotter :y

Just a reminder..... tonight is the last date to send payment and sign-up for this event.... I think we have only 2 spots available. After this, we won't have another private rental for 11 months. I should have another update by tonight or tomorrow morning regarding final count, exact start/end times, and a few other things.

Thanks and looking forward to seeing everyone again
