Welcome Dan, that would be a good question for your second post (in the rules section) while you wait on your rule book

Hello,

My name is Steve and I have been into racing for most of my life. Mostly drag racing Gassers and thought I would check out the faster cars... My buddy just gave me the task of selling his car the Green Monster jet car. I was thinking about buying it and possibly rebuilding the car or just sell it and buy a new car.

Do you know of some good places in California to race?

Steve

Welcome, Steve.

I know of 4 drag strips in California that (to my knowledge) are still
being used, and none of them are limited to 1/8 mile timed runs.

They are in Pomona (at the fairgrounds), Sonoma (the facility used to
be called Sears Point, and later Infineon.  I don't know it's current name),
Sacramento, and near or technically in Bakersfield.  That one is called
Famosa.

There may be others.  Unfortunately, several I used to go to have closed,
including Fremont Drag Strip (later renamed Baylands), Lions, Orange County
International Raceway, Ontario Motor Speedway, and Irwindale (still open,
but now only 1/8 mile).

I doubt that any of the listed drag strips accept trust powered vehicles at this time. I know that neither the SCTA(El Mirage) nor BNI(Bonneville) accept thrust vehicles. This car is very far from what a current jet powered drag car is.

Saw that 37-foot Austin on the trailer last weekend.  Didn't look that big.

37 thru 41 roadster bodies are much different than the 31-34's. The typical glass one is a copy of a 32. Bill Goldman's steel body is an early one also. Cage gives the this year roadster a much different look. The rear fenders are also much different due the back of the body where they are attached being a different design. I believe this one trying to conform to our Street Roadster rules...

Wait a minnit.  I'm a bike guy and even I know that if you're racing a roadster you will learn about - circular braking techniques., if you will. evil
