How this event was born:
I have been around street racing all my life, my dad street raced in the late 50's early 60's, all his friends, all my friends. I took over my dads car repair business, and for all my life and before, people have trailered and driven their cars to my shop parking lot, and "tried them out" at the 1/4 mile long, unobstructed strip in front of my shop. Well, all good things must come to an end. One year ago, Johnny Law decided to step in, and a bunch of tickets were written, cars were towed. I was on my property, but i still got a ticket. A buddy of mine that also got a ticket, said we need to have a street race event at the local track(tririverdragway)and it would look good on us in court. Well, we had the event last november, it didnt help us in court, but we had a blast. So we worked out a 4 race schedule in '09, and this is the last of 4.I set up the event to make it just like streetracing, but at a safe venue. so if u get a chance make the trip.
