Thanks For the warm welcome!!

I reside in Chesterfield Twp, Mi. Between Port Huron and Detroit.

I have crewed on a mini stock team, raced Jeeps and Karts in the 80's and 90's. Fell out of it to start a family.
I just keep lurking and thinking that some day I will get back to racing. Hopefully in a year I might be able to get something together.

Thanks for the nod...
 yep.. it's always the hard part.. and I see that just figuring out what class to participate in is overwhelming...
Being a bike guy that shortens the list... until I start thinking how much fun a four wheel cart would be to build... this is going to be something kinda difficult to noodle out...
 I'm thinking a time frame of maybe 2-3 years to get up to speed, prep for a well equipped attempt and have a proper bike built and ready...5 plus for a car..
 so it's not something I'm dreaming of doing over the winter for next year...ya!

Hey everyone. My name is Zach Heldt. I have long dreamt of being in the 200mph club. Finally setting goals of getting my 280z running and road worthy. I am going to start bracing the chassis and getting an lq4 popped in there. Going to run her as a modified sports. I have spent most of my career in the auto industry and getting contacts to help with any fab work that I am unable to do. Trying to learn as much as possible on this forum. Been lurking for a while and finally registered. I am in southern california, anaheim to be exact. Would love to meet up with some locals and talk about this sport and what to look out for. Please email me at zacheryheldt@gmail.com if you would be willing to give me some of your time. Thanks in advance.

Zack,

You might consider attending the El Mirage meet next weekend, 9/10 & 11. You can talk with mod sports guys and tech people with the end game being to stay on track and not get lost in the confusion that is the rule book.

  Zack, X2 what Dan said.  I encourage anyone considering building a class specific car to contact others running similar vehicles and if at all possible visit them and look at how they built their race vehicle.  You may find things that You think is wrong with theirs and most all will be willing to explain to You why they went the way that they did.
  Rule books are all encompassing and cannot answer every question.
  That is why You need to first buy a 2016 Rule Book.  In it You will find the contact information for the technical contact persons for each category on pages 194-196 and  THESE ARE THE PEOPLE WHO WILL TELL YOU EXACTLY WHAT YOU NEED TO KNOW.  Everything anyone else tells You is pure speculation, misconceptions or (in my case) sometimes ignorance.                                                   
                                                                                         Good Luck, "One Run Bob" Drury

I'm Oj, living in the Shenandoah Valley of Virginia.  I've been in automotive fabrication and been doing it on a professional level for over 20years.  My experience is from drag racing, I ran B/A and Top Sportsman and have a new car siting in the shop not quite ready to go.  I got re-introduced to traditional hot rodding about 10 years ago and that rekindled my interest in LSR.  I've never been to Bonneville but have many friends that go and it's time I started to build a car.  I think I'll go with friends and give them a hand next year to get a feel for how it all works and the following year have at it.  There's something about a tank that suits me and I have a mercruiser 4cyl Ford that I can build for it.  So, thats it. 
Actually, I reallyreally want to hear one of them multiple engine streamliners at WOT for miles!  You cannnot pretend to know what that sounds like.  That, itself, might do it for me.  But, I doubt it.

Asking questions is one's only way of getting answers. As a young boy I was always taught that there is no such thing as a stupid question. It suggests that the quest for knowledge includes failure, and that just because one person may know less than others they should not be afraid to ask rather than pretend they already know. In many cases multiple people may not know but are too afraid to ask the "stupid question"; the one who asks the question may in fact be doing a service to those around them.

OJ;

Does the Eastside drag strip in Waynesboro still exist? I used to run my '65 GTO there in BB/stock back in the '60s.

Yes, it is still there and run by the Gores - it kinda changed hands and I believe Gary is back to running it.  Their sister track - Manassas has gone to the developers, it was the oldest track on the east coast and now Eastside has to be one of the oldest.  Gary has a strong tie to the history and he promotes nostalgia events at some of the local tracks.  Later this month they have a huge nostalgia event and Bobby Hilton will have his Top Fuel FED there, Bunny Burkett will likely putt down the track, all the surviving S&S boys will be there and they'll be some serious racing with the gassers etc.  Al Gore is still alive, in his 90's and goes to all those events.
BB/S would have been tubbed? a Super Stocker?  That would've been a badassed piece.
