PIR drags... Can anyone from PDX tell me?

I've been thinking about driving down to PIR to run some test runs. Never been. How is it? I checked their schedules, and it seems like they do late night drags every weekend almost. Can any PDX peoples chime in on this track?

I've never been to it, but if you want some company, I wouldn't mind I could use some practice on the drag strips.. Have you been to pacific?

ic.. well its decent I guess lol, been there once a couple years back. I was supposed to go yesterday, they had a test and tune drag day but I forgot that it was Easter lol.. O well, planning to go sometime soon though. we should get a bunch of PNW folks together and all roll down there, we could probably meet up a few OR members also...

That would be awesome. But as long as I've been up here, I've noticed that Pac NW BMW owners are too fair weather to do anything when the weathers bad..

I want to go soon also.

Do you guys want to go this Friday or Saturday night? They open at 6pm.

Listing from their website:

EVENTS THIS WEEK AT PIR

Friday/Saturday 3/28-29: Les Schwab Late Night Drags Gates open 6 p.m. Bring it out and race on the 1/4 mile.

Their next scheduled night drags are 10-11 April.

*EDIT* if it doesn't rain that is... lol

They say it should be here any day now.

But I think it's kinda risky to drive all the way down to Portland and then rain.

Why don't we try Bremerton?

Per main page, looks like there is "Open Test and Tune" every Friday and weekends.

Their schedule pages lists no events until April 18th, but Im going to call and make sure.
I wonder how strict their rules enforcement are. Their rules page state that you need a drive shaft loop for any car running under 13.99...

Yup I was parked there quite often in the past month.

Ive been seeing a lot of E90/92s lately. Saw one with an Aero Lip today by Corps, and a E90 with smoked lights a few days ago, any of those you?

We used to go ALL the time with the old school crew.

For the Seattle guys the drags at Pacific Raceways will be much closer for you.

Pacific just doesnt have open drags nites often enough. Next one is late May. I just wanted to know what the track was like, if it was worth the drive.

its fun to run the quarter mile, but its so tempting to go through the cones and head towards the chicane
