Default Pump Gas Invitational: Automotive Airfield Event



Get ready to row gears head-to-head with your pump gas car at our latest airfield side-by-side roll racing event, the Pump Gas Invitational (“PGI”). At the PGI what will land you in the winners circle is getting to the finish line first beating the driver next to you in one of our two classes: 93 octane or E85. No brackets, MPH limits, clock racing, participation trophies, or BS. If your vehicle has 4-wheels you can register and everyone is welcome to join in.

We did some testing yesterday for the event. Here's a video. This was a 60 to 161mph pull against a ZR1 with nitrous. Close race showing what 93 octane and meth is capable of doing.

Here are a couple of races against a Dallas Performance Stage 3 Lambo. Not bad on the "900 HP" setting. The lambo was on race gas since this was an impromptu test event. On race day, the playing field will be level since all cars have to run either 93 octane or E-85.

If anyone is on the fence about running in the 93 octane class, I would highly encourage going for it. Pump gas is a true equalizer for racing. The AWD cars are typically able to dominate at most events because they are making big power on race gas and are able to put the power down with all wheel drive. Pump gas brings the AWD cars back to more sane power levels and makes this more of a driver's race.
