Rockingham NC Dragstrip Anyone? Jan 5th

Its about time that I take this girl to see what she's got. Ive never raced at this track, but should be a great day.

Who all is interested in heading out there?

http://www.rockinghamdragway.com/
From the website....
In anticipation of a warm weekend, Rockingham Dragway will start Street Drags and Test and Tune on Saturday, January 5.

The informal Street Drags series will operate Saturday afternoons through February, according to owner Steve Earwood.

"We structured this series to be fun," Earwood said. "Saturday afternoons are open for all vehicles. It doesn't make any difference if you bring an import car, a muscle car, a motorcycle or your dadís pick-up, you'll still get your track time. You can run it as many times as you care up to 6pm."

Hours of operation will be from 1pm to 6pm.

Spectator admission is $10. It's an additional $10 if you want to race, Earwood said, "whether your vehicle is a race car, a street car, a truck, a motorcycle, an ATV or a snowmobile."

Rockingham Dragway, one of only two active quarter-mile dragstrips in North Carolina, is sanctioned and insured by the International Hot Rod Association.

If I get time, I will call tomorrow and see what the safety requirements for a 13s car are.
If they do require a helmet, you better find one or they will not let you run after your first 13s run.

FASTASNTZ, hopefully we can get things figured out by this evening as far as if a group of us will be going. I sure hope so!

I can borrow a helmet from my neighbor who rides bikes. He should have a nasty one he wouldnt mind letting go of.

Looks like brunokid99 is in as well. I think you dont live too far from him. I know he wanted to do some sort of Caravan. Im way out in BFE though and usually drive down 87 over to 1 and straight down.

Still waiting to see what Booster is thinking about doing.

13.00 or faster and you need a helmet. You also need to wear pants and not shorts when running.
Being stock, I should not have to worry about it. Those of you with a Procede, JBS2, SSTT or anything of the sort probably need to bring a helmet.
Still up in the air about it. If I am there, it will be a 2007 335i 4 door, Barberra Red, Sport Package and no mods...
