Carlisle is June 2-4, and I'll be at that and WFC working, so shine your car up nice or put it on the track and I may put you in the magazine...

Edit: Sorry, Spanish skills not so good. WFC is in St. Louis.

Don't think the car will be together, but if it is I'll be there.

Count me in as a 100% (provided the earth stops spinning)

My plan is to have the debut of the swap with the interior finnish for the car show. Not going to race it but it should be well tuned by then.

A BUNCH of the mustang guys are doing the show all weekend and I'm going to start talking to them about maybe some "east side ballet's" tours as we like to call them.

Expect this event to be a bust this year. Many race classes eliminated, and the outlaw payout cut in half.

Bummer...any reason given as to why? Not enough attendance/show car participation last year?

Real street is still on this year. These classes are no more:

Renegade
Hot Street
Pure Street
Factory Stock

So every NA class is gone.


Plus outlaw pays $7,500 to win, not $15,000 anymore. Remember there is no contingency payout at this race. When you consider an outlaw car can race every weekend in the southeast for $10k to win on an 1/8th mile, and it's only a 1 day race with minimal travel expense, they are going to have a tough time drawing outlaw cars. Many are already saying they won't be attending.


As to the why, the handwriting has been on the wall the last 3 years or so, this type of racing is dying a slow death, car counts continue to dwindle. The #1 reason would be the constant expensive rule changes.
