This is just to kinda throw out in the wind right now, however, who all would be interested in a day at the Drag Strip?

We could all meet up on a saturday or sunday morning at Cedar Falls Raceway on a test n tune type of deal and run our truck for half or all day, and then go into cedar falls/waterloo area for a lunch and/or dinner.

This is purely an idea and i have no idea what everyones thoughts are on this due to possible truck damage/breakage but hey, ya pay to play right?

There is a poll here as well just to gauge some interest in a yes or no if youd be willing to do it.

Thanks guys
Zach

Drag racing with a stick is pretty much a losing proposition, so count me out.

There won't be any NHRDA events in Iowa this year unless we can raise the money to put it on. AKA $4500. I am working with the NHRDA to get events in Iowa. There will be some in 2009 for sure. I would go drag racing just say when and I will see what's going on. You might be able to get some of the fantasy guys to come race as I know some of them want to. Just pass the news on to other sites.

I have spoke with Cedar Falls race way before and they might have a diesel class if we want to do this. Let me know I still have his number. And for those that are too scared to race just come watch and hang out. It is well worth it. If your truck can't make it there and back on $100 turn it back down or lose the chip. LOL

641-420-8030. If i dont answer its because i dont recognise the number, just leave me a voice mail and i will listen to it then get back to ya, or else you can text me before ya call and say who ya are and that your callin so i know.

Like I said if you don't want to race just come to hang out. If you want a ride I'm sure we could meet at some point and get you there. I'm sure other traveling members would do that as well.
