I'm planning on going Sunday morning & showing, then driving back that evening. Ennis is always good, better than Htown for the midway.

Contemplating going for the weekend.

What town do you stay at? Last time I went to a NHRA event at Ennis I stayed in Corsicana - and am looking at booking a room there now.

We usually stay at the track in the trailer.

This place still has rooms and they are about 3 miles from the track!

Quality Inn
107 Chamber of Commerce Dr.
Ennis, TX 75119
972-875-9641

Tell them you are coming in for FFW to get the FFW rate.

Or tell them you work for HertZ and get their rate, it's most likely cheaper!

Well, Sad to disappoint you mike, the car had it's issues. We arrived FRiday afternoon ( 4pm) and got right to work on the issues and went and did some road tuning. After about 6 runs down the local highway we had a SAFE tune ( 9degrees of timing and 8lbs. of boost and an A/F of 10.9) we were rewarded with:


R/T .031
60' 1.733
330 4.846
1/8 7.427
MPH 94.35
1000 9.875
1/4 11.564
MPH 123.43


If I can get the car to build boost off of the line with a 2 step program I'm working on, we should be able to see some 10's with this tune up and some low 10's once I get it to the Dyno for some tuning.
