You know it! There's quiet a few on here that bracket race. I try to run every weekend.

I gave up my ole Ken Keir Dragster for a 77' Vega then gave it up to drive for a guy locally then got my 99' Camaro and just recently took it off the street to run No/E and Super Pro.

Last year I made three races in No/E and got one Runner-up and then Won the Razorback Nationals .

I do travel. I've been up to (Bristol, TN) (Mobile, AL) (Memphis, TN) (Hattiesburg(?), MS) and a couple more places. I usually run here locally at the 1/8 mile track though.

Heard anything on how they're doing the Million Dollar race this year?

I just got my lil' 99' camaro with a 370CI motor at 3600lbs, runs 6.60's all day .

Taking a little weight out of it now and just put in a TH400 with a brake and 4.33 gears with a Neal Chance 9" converter. We'll see how it does in about two weeks once I get it back together.

I've been staying here local trying to get the set-up pretty close before I go off anywhere for right now. I usually look up on Drag Race Results to see where some of the bigger races are.

As far as I know I'm the youngest Super Pro winner to win a DRR race at 15 years old .

Pure bracket racer here. I run Route 66 in Joliet IL NHRA points. I won the championship last year there. I also run IHRA at Byron Dragway in Byron IL. I try to do some traveling when we can. I like to hit as many bigger dollar no box races in the surrounding states.

Route 66 pays 1000 to win for Pro ET.
Byron does a run off between the box and no box cars for the big money. Sat pays 2500 and Sun pays 5000

Been bracket racing for 18 years. We usually run for $400-1000 in Florida, although SGMP in Cecil, GA had a footbrake race that paid $1500 each race for 3 races over a December weekend. All three vehicles below have been bracket raced, some just with more success than the other....

I do a little bracket racin. We race all over Texas(Kinda a big state).

Our 1st points race of the year is March 27 & 28 at Houston Raceway Park (NHRA). This year they are paying $800.00 to win N/E. We also race at Pine Valley Raceway (IHRA) for points. If the car count is over 40 cars it pays $2,000.00 to win.

Looking forward to the start of the season next weekend.

Really? I didn't know you ran at PineValley. My ex girlfriends parents own the track. Well I guess the Bailey's still own it? Maybe I'll be able to meet you there at a big bracket race down there.

Well damn, we have an Outlaw race up here in Prescott on the 20th. You'll have to let me know when they have a big bracket race going on and we'll make a trip down.

I just ordered my new K&R Delay box
