March Event
« on: January 23, 2007, 06:26:39 PM »
I saw this is the Hot Rod Speed Challenge. Does that mean that all vehicles are not welcome? I compete on a motorcycle. Sorry for the dumb question...but their is a banquet involved!  :-D

No, Bryan, there's a restriction -- no 7-wheelers with three engines, one of which comes from a weed-whacker, and also absolutely no steam rollers!  Other than that -- yup, all are welcome.

A little more serious response to the question -- The Hot Rod Top Speed Shootout has brought a whole bunch of cars to Maxton (that might otherwise never have been there).  And this means that indeed, there are longer lines than we've come to enjoy.  Bikes run just like always -- but don't be surprised when you arrive and see cars all over the Dodge pits, cars lined up in "pre-stage".  There'll still be three lines in staging, still be Al the starter getting off racers as safely and fast as he can, still be course workers making sure the next few vehicles are ready to run as soon as the previous racer leaves so waiting is minimised.

Get your butt there and enjoy the weekend.  The banquet -- hey, what other race event has bagpipe music to greet you when you arrive at the facility?  We'll be there, maybe with bikes, maybe just to work.  But we'll be there.

Bryan, you're dating yourself.  The "steam rollers" I see nowadays have two rollers -- big, one in front, one in back.  Then there are the non-steam rollers -- about six tires front, five in back (maybe it's the other way around).

Even numbers -- so you're saying no motorcycle sidecars, hey?

Bryan, you're close -- it's not Barbara Walters, it's Bubba Walters.  You get a mug shot, fifteen minutes in the porta-potties, plaque on your teeth (assuming you've got some), a couple of links from a drive chain, and it's not a Visa card, it's an empty Wal-Mart gift card.

The $100 is correct -- but only for pre-entries.  Add $20 if you register at the track.

I got all excited when I read about the Hot Rod meet.  Finally! . . .  a meet just for me! 

Then I realized it says Hot Rod Speed Challenge.  The frist time I read it I thought it said "Speed Challenged". 
 
. . . . Oh well.
