Drag Racing 101 anyone?

OK Midwest SCMC Members,

CRT Performance has posted their Track Dates for 2007 at Summit Motorsports Park in Norwalk, Ohio. They are as follows:

Weds 5/16 12-4pm
Fri 6/15 12-4pm
Weds 7/18 12-4 pm
Fri 8/17 12-4 pm
Weds 10/3 12-4pm

Make plans for one of these dates and come out and try your hand at Drag Racing. This is a learning, test & tune type of day at the track. Yes, there are experienced, high-power, sub-10 sec. cars BUT ALL ARE WELCOME and you will find all levels of cars and drivers there (even high powered bikes). I ran one of their days last fall as a rookie and it was a fantastic learning experience. If nothing else, this is a cheap opportunity to experience this type of racing and figure out if it is for you. Plenty of instruction is available!

Details can be found on CRT's website (www.crt-performance.com) and you can reserve your spot by calling Tammy Chambers at the shop at 419-668-4151.

How does 5/16 sound to everyone for a group outing? I know it is a Weds. but there is time to prepare and plan a day off. If not Friday 6/15 is a great date to shoot for. I know we are also talking about The World Ford Challenge in Indy that weekend as a group so planning is key.

I am signing up for both! See you there!

Mike-Thanks for the heads up. I will sign up for the first two, May 16 and June 15. Wednesdays are abit more of a challenge due to travel, but I really want to try this. I suspect my slow 04 won't be able to keep up with you and your experienced 97 dragster, but I'll try. Sounds like fun. I'm sure Michael will try to make one or more of these dates as well.
Mark

Beautiful!

Thus far....

Mark Monjot
Mike Monjot
Tony McConnon (did I spell your name right?)
Mike Redinger

Where are you BIGFISH!?

I asked Tammy what time we can be at the track...she said the gates are always open at Summit MP, but 11:00 am is advised to log-in and pay!

We can set a meeting place before hand for some late breakfast/early lunch if anyone is interested in that.

Name is spelled correctly Mike . By the way Mike R., are these the guys that tuned your cobra? I'm thinking (tentative atm) about maybe having them tune mine and if I do, might shoot for the morning of the first run (i.e. 5/16).

Tony,

Yes they are.. I am very happy with the job they did. Just a little disppointing that I can't get 300 rwhp with all the stuff I have on this thing. The answer is a more aggressive cam - a project for another day.

Norwalk drag days

I will give them a call and sign myself in for both dates. Should have the car back by middle of April and ready to go for another great summer. We will have to talk some more about the Ford Challenge in May - Indy - not sure I can do that and the drag day in Norwalk. Do not really care, the Norwalk event might be more fun.

Mike,

Trying to plan my days off at work - are you still planning on going to the CRT Performance Day at Norwalk on 5/16?

I am off and ready to come to the first two drag days. I am also going to try and clear my schedule for the 3rd date. I most likely am not going to be able to make the 4th, as I am in a wedding that weekend. And I know I won't be at the last one, for if all goes as scheduled, my new born child will be 5 days old!...... Really wish I still had my 03, that would have been a heck of alot more fun in a straight line than the new ride. I will just have to steal the keys to dads mystic

Great looking forward to seeing you guys. Working on a deal to sell my 03' - I have located a 2000 R and am working on the guy to lower his selling price a little. Would love to have that car, only 2000 miles on it. all original

It is a real stretch right now, the guy owns it with no debt, and is trying to hold out for full value. However, he is finding MI people do not have the spare $ as they once did when the auto plants were all working - trying to wait him out - gave him a small $ retainer that allows me 48 hours to match any other offer he gets, but need to get my 03' sold first.
