Hi I am in Memphis also.

What kind of car do you have? Race much?

Tonight I am going to Memphis Motorsports and see what my GTO can do.

There is an Air Field about 20 min north of the Track that our C-130's land at, I think it's Army ran.

Welcome to the area Dooley, hope to see you out at Memphis sometime.

The Navy headquarters BUPERS is there at Millington (moved from DC). It's been an Air Station for years though. I went through there when I joined in '91.

I live close to Millington myself. Millington is a growing community with all kinds of places popping up out there. I live off HWY 51 about 10 miles from Walmart in Millington.

My 2001 Z28 automatic with crappy 2.73 gears ran 12.90s consistant...mods were Pacesetter headers, SLP lid, and a tune. These cars are cheap and easy to make fast.

If you ever need some automotive help, just shoot a message my way!

That's good stuff. I would be broke living close to the Track cause I would be going there just about every night for T/T, and paying for the stuff that broke on the Car..
