Hi, all. This is a stump for my friend's non-profit drag race event. A friend of mine has put together a super-TNT drag race on April 9th, at Cecil County Dragway in Maryland (north of Baltimore). She's asked me to send an invite out to all Ford Truck Enthusiasts members in the MD/VA/PA/DC/DE region and beyond.
The event is called the American Street Shootout, to replace the cancelled American Iron Shootout. All street legal AMERICAN cars and trucks are welcome. $35 at the gate. It'd be great to have a couple of Ford trucks out there. I'm racing my inline six 1988 F150.
Race format is heads-up .500 sportsman tree, not bracket racing, with timeslip comparisons afterwards. There are several differet classes already. If 5 or more FTE members sign up for the race, we'll get our own class. Within each class are awards for best Reaction time, ET, MPH and 60' time (my 300ci is going to own you on the 60'!).
Typically, everyone drives up/down Friday afternoon, and stays at the local Knights Inn in Elkton, MD ((410) 392-6680). There's a special Street Shootout rate of $49.95/night, double occupancy. Barbecue and beers for everyone. Saturday we race, and Saturday night is the obligatory after-party. Then people leave on Sunday.
