Slick,

Sounds like fun but no can do.

Friday nights at GLD are usually bad.
High school night, imports.
Crowded lanes, poor conditions caused by above.

Sunday June 30th, I'll be at Rt 66 at the NMCA event - RACING!!!

A tuesday - wed night would be good. Get there early.
I need some test n tune!

Vic, you should paln on going to RSD's (Real Street Drags) on 8/19 @ GLD. You can T&T from 3pm-7pm then we can set up races for cash if you like with street cars. This is legit as myself and James do rather well. My car is set to get tuned on the 24th of July.

Check out this video of James wiping out this Mustang Track car. Let it download. His race was about 4:30 into the video. It was by far the best one of the night. James spotted him 4 cars and the hit for a G note.

I saw that, but is that for everyone?
I also looked on their message board and one guy asked about the lights and there has not been a reply. Maybe if everyone starts e-mailing them and there is enough interest they will start doing some night races.

FWIW....

I'm thinking GLD this Friday.

I looked at the schedule.
HS night is now thursday AND no import night that night either.

So, I may go as I need to Dial in for NMCA.

What we have here is a location issue as GLD is in my back yard.

Byron is 110 miles one way for me.

I'll be at GLD Friday when the gates open for testn tune.

Rained out last night

Where the heck did that come from?
Thursday all the weather sites said no rain, then BAM outta nowhere.

Anyway, still need to dial in so I'll be GLD Sunday early, when the gates open. They have a Mopar program starting at 1:00 PM so I want to be on the trailer by then.

Hi Vic....

Just saw this. Wouldn't have been able to attend anyway, but the thing on the 30th, might be very do-able for me. I'll know better as it gets closer (works been a b..tch).

Well I ran on Sunday. Great Day.
Got there at 9:30. Got 5 runs in before the MOPARS took over.
Was home and off the trailer by 3:00

Check out GLD's web site. I think they have Test n Tune almost every Tues-Wed-Thurs.

I'll be at Rt 66 next weekend
