Thumbs up Drag Race April 9th in Maryland

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.

The official Shootout site is http://www.pathogenproductions.com/streetshootout/.

Hotel information: http://www.pathogenproductions.com/s...out/hotel.html

This is a non-profit event, and I stand to gain nothing except a timeslip. I am in no way connected with Pathogen Productions.

Hope to see you there!

PM me for additional information, or check out the official Shootout website listed above.

Great! There's a big thread about this in the Virginia Chapter forum. http://www.ford-trucks.com/forums/sh....php?p=2489409

Always glad to have more people! Come on out and race, and meet some local FTE members.

Race was good; we all had a blast. Cecil County Dragway, Rising Sun, Maryland (30 mi north of Baltimore).

We're doing another event like this later in the year. Details to follow in a few months. Come join us!
