View Full Version : SCMC Drag Day at Rockingham Dragway -- Rockingham, NC -- November 22, 2008

Official Registration for the SCMC/MGW Fall Drag Day -- November 22, 2008

The SCMC/MGW Spring Drag Day will be on November 22, 2008 and will be at a new location, Rockingham Dragway. We will have the same format as the Fall Drag day with the bracket races being grouped into 2 groups. The event starts at 9:00 a.m. and concludes at 5:00 p.m. The groups will be as follows:

1. Men's/Women's Open Bracket Race (Open to any type vehicle/non-member)
3. SVT Cobra Club Bracket Race (Open to club members only)

Our goal is to have a $500.00 purse for each category but this is not guaranteed. Fee is $50.00 with a $10.00 discount for early registration for club members and participants who previously attended an SCMC Drag Day. Spectator fee will be $10.00 a person. Registration will begin on January 1, 2008 when the registration forms go up.

Concerning Bracket Racing Categories:

Category 2 is for SVT Cobra Club Members only in which members will be running against each other to see who is left standing. SCMC members who participate in the category 2 race cannot participate in the category 1 race. Club members must be driving a manual transmission SVT Cobra to compete and must have their membership current prior to the event.

Participants in the category 1 race cannot participate in the category 2 race so we do not have the same vehicle in both races taking both purses. This is set up to have a little club rivalry while still keeping the same format and giving both members and their friends an equal chance to win a little spending money.

The format is as follows:

Test and tune - 9:00 a.m. - 2:30 p.m.

During this time, you can grudge race some of your friends and non-friends.

Afternoon Bracket Competition -

See how good you are on knowing your driving skills and take home the cash to prove it. Once the competition is over, you will go back to test and tune while the awards are being figured out. There will be numerous awards and the ceremony is usually held around 4:00 to 4:30 p.m. Our rental ends at 5:00 p.m., you can stay all night for an extra fee.

We encourage all SVT Cobra & Shelby GT 500 owners to join our club and join in on the fun. The SCMC member that wins will be featured on our website and in our quarterly newsletter. (To join SCMC go to www.scmcstore.com and sign up on line.) Anyone who registers after November 1, 2008 will pay a $50.00 entry fee including club members. Car show participants will remain at $20.00 per entry.

You must be a club member in order to run in the "Cobra Club" race. Yes, we know if your membership is current and we hope you don't try to embarrass yourself by running in this race when you shouldn't. Your membership must be current prior to the event.

There will be a "Top 20" car show so we encourage you and your friends to come out and show your cars while watching the competition. The bigger the show turnout we can have at this event, the better the trophies will be to the winners.

Please help spread the word about our track event and car show.

If you have any questions, you can e-mail me at mrmach@comporium.net, thanks.

Glad you can make this one Steve!! It's a lot closer than Carolina Dragway, too. I've heard there are a lot of people who plan on attending but I'm sure they're going to pay at the gate. :thumbsup:

Yea, I'm just paying at the gate too. My tranny is ready to explode, so I wasn't sure if it would still be alive for this event. 3rd gear whines louder than the supercharger. :)

Definitely like the shorter drive too!

Do you know if they will be able to do track prep and allow us to run in these temps? By 9am it probably won't be over 35 degrees max. The sun should be out, but it will take some time to heat the track up.

They will have the track ready by 9:30 a.m. I spoke with Steve all week and he said everything will be set as well as the concession stand opening on time, 11:00 a.m. I look for the temps to hit the mid 50's by the afternoon.

We also have a new sponsor for this event. We will be doing a 'free" raffle for a couple of sets of shock tower covers and a free pair of 2005-09 hood prop rod kits.

Thanks to California Pony Cars for their donations.
