I would prefer 1/8th one day and 1/4 the other day, but am fine either way.

Best wishes,
Lou

I would definitely prefer to have both 1/8 and 1/4 mile.

I was chatting with Lukus and he prefers 1/8 mile as well. His car is geared more for 1/8 mile.

I’d prefer both 1/8 and 1/4 mile too (Primarily just for record setting purposes). But I’m also fine either way. Normally the fall race is the best chance to break records, so it would be nice to run both.

Also, i will add up how much money we made from the head gasket sale and add that to the purse for the race. After I get back home I will let you all know how much is there for that too.

So it looks like there is plenty of interest in an 1/8 mile race that weekend. I will contact the owner and see if that will work for them. I don't think they will have a problem with that. Thanks for the input. Guess maybe I better drop in my 4.56's and see if that Gary Bruner record is within reach!! :D :D

They are just doing 1/8 Mile at my local track now. dewey nites make for a slippery track for the sub 11 second cars.

I hope he is..

Maybe your place is about 1/2 way? Not likely as you are probably a skoch too far north.

My guess is I 40 to I 81.

We got confirmation that we can run 1/8 mile one of the days.

Yes Jeff we'd love to have you! But I don't envy that long haul. Wish I could promise you a good turn out, but I'm not having much luck with recruiting. Let us know if your coming!
