I will probably be at the races in Byjalia next weekend

(?) I'm pretty sure that's how it's spelled.... Pronounced: BYE-HAIL-EEE-AH

Down in Mississippi anyway. I want to see my bosses 5.0 Ranger truck run! Everything I've heard about the track down there sounds like the good ol' days of drag racing.

Apparently almost everyone I work with either has a racing machine, or a Harley Davidson. I want both, naturally.

Talking

That should be fun to watch a 5.0 ranger run. Any idea what kind of numbers it will run?

It's an 8th mile track - and so far he's been pulling sevens! It's bracket racing too - so it get's kind of odd in some ways.

You figure what you think you are going to run, and the closest you can come to it is a kind of score... Say you decide you can run a 7.95 - that's your target. Your "ERROR TIME" is how far off you are from it. I'd be happier just seeing how freaking fast I can go....

It's a kind of a "Sportsmans Class" of drag racing. It sorta combines gambling with speed. Also skill. The biggest part of it is consistency...

The one downside of it I can see is that you also lose points if you go faster (and thus: are QUICKER) than you thought you would be.

I'd rather bracket race than anyother type of drag racing. It combines good reaction time with consistancy in your runs. If you can do both you can win no matter how fast your ride is. I might join you at the track Wolfie. Its not far from my house.

HEY! I 'preciate ya...

I think if I didn't show down there I'd be missing out on a good thing, and a good ol' time....

I've been hearing about it for more than three weeks now.

Lakeland was an old time drag strip laid out to the east of L.A. if I remember right, back in the day. They ran everything from Streamliners to Jalopies out there....

It might be a slow weekend at Byhalia. The Nats are at MMS this weekend. I'll go to Byhalia if you are Greywolf. Its only a few miles from my house.

Hey Grey,
Lakeland was a drag strip east of Memphis @ Canada Rd and I-40. Actually if you go to the Factory Outlet Mall and go to the parking lot in the back right corner(sorta) as you enter. You can walk up the hill and still see remnants of the paved track and all.
BTW, I live in Bartlett and work in Millington.
Enjoy Byhalia races.

It looks like it's going to be Holly Grove ('Bout fifteen miles away) but I won't know for sure until I call Jim tomorrow at noon to find out if he got his tranny back in the race machine...

It seems he done blew up the tailshaft housing on a C6, and another one is going in starting in the morning.

Do you mean Holly Springs? They redid the track there this winter. It should be ready by now. I beat a new Hemi at Holly Springs 2 yrs ago. It sure was fun. The announcer was running his mouth about the Hemi everytime it staged. I shut him up by beating the Hemi by a full second in the eighth.

Holly Springs isn't Jim's track of choice. He don't like it for some reason.
But the sponsor said : "YEP! 'Ats where we gonna run..."

(if his tranny is together)

PS: What you said, "HOLLY SPRINGS". That's right.

CHANGE 2:

It's Byhalia, 6PM tonight - that's a definite. Gate fee is $10 for adults, children under ten get in free. Here's a map link

http://www.mapquest.com/maps/map.adp...te=MS&zipcode=

(at least I hope the link works)

I just called Jim ten minutes ago, and the tranny is in the last stages of bolt-up.

LET'S GO RACING!!!!

If Jim hasn't seen the Holly Springs track bince last yr I don't blame him for not liking it. It was too short & rough. Its been redone & made longer. I'll try to find you tonight at Byhalia.
