I plan on making this my first TX2k meet. I don't know if I should go to the first days events or not. The less time I have to take off work the better. What exactly does the March 20,2008 (Thursday) - Road Racing/Driver's Education consist of? Is it worth going to?

Are a lot of you IS guys going to this? I would really like for us to make it down there because I am a huge Supra nut but also because it is a definate bonus if it is going to be a place to meet up with some IS owners... we can't seem to get anything going here in San Antonio. :(

Sunday 3/23/08:

Let me start this thread by saying that every year I try to do something "new", something "different", something "more fun" than the previous year. Having said that, a new company, National Grudge Racing Championship (their website is in the final stages of development now, so look for it in early February at National Grudge Racing Championship, or check out their Myspace page at MySpace.com - N.G.C. - 23 - Male - RALEIGH, North Carolina - www.myspace.com/ngcracing) came to me with the idea of having a STREET CAR grudge race at the end of the drag day event for cash. The winner of this class will get $500 cash and will be crowned the "Grudge Racing Championship - Street Car Champion". Since this class will be at the END of the day, it will give those that were eliminated from their class earlier in the day to try again for money and a trophy.

The RULES for this class will be as follows:

This race is open to any make or model of vehicle that can meet these qualifications:

-No fuel cells allowed, must utilize OEM gas tanks (boost a pumps and fuel line alterations are ok)
-Must be on DOT approved tires (meaning street tires, drag radials or ET Streets)
-Car must be equipped with an alternator
-Car must have valid/current inspection sticker and valid license plates
-No wheelie bars allowed
- Car must have at least one passenger seat (no rear seat requirement) and must retain full interior (carpet, dash, door panels, etc...)
-Car must have stock style suspension

The race will be ran as a HOT LAP competition. Meaning you will not have 15 minutes to cool your car down, make adjustments, etc... Run, turn around.... and if you were the victor, get right back to the line to take on the next competitor. This is a HEADS UP, drop of the arms, first one to the quarter line, single elimination, grudge race for $500 in CASH. The ladder will be made RANDOMLY and on the spot. We will call all cars in the GRUDGE RACING CHAMPIONSHIP Class to the line towards the end of the day.

You think you have the baddest street car and want to prove it? Here is your chance to take home all the bragging rights, and a nice chunk of cash to boot.

I can't wait to see what sort of participation we can get...

Peter
