    I doubt it since its a 5hr drive one way. We may try and come out for fords at E-town in Oct if the cars are all together and the weather is OK.

    that sounds cool man....i hear what your saying about the driving, and good weather.....i drove down to cecil with my dad about a year ago, and we drove the 4 hours down, and 10 minutes after we pulled in the gates, and got the car off the trailor, it started to POUR like i've never seen rain before.....

    What time is everybody going/meeting up tomorrow? We are allowed to register our cars at the gate right? Does anyone know how much it costs to register for the show?

    You are 4hrs from Cecil? Hell, that's how long it takes me to get there. I would have thought you were closer than that. So which is faster in your opinion, cecil or E-town. I know E-town is a much grander facility, but my money is on cecil being the quickest.

    yea the deal with cecil is that about 2/3 the way down the track, it actually starts to VERY GRADUALLY slope down....its been mentioned by many guys that go down there......as far as im concerned, etown is a better for me and my dad beause its 50 min away, and the track is always prepped great.......the only reason we went to cecil was because my dad's good friend ed is on teh etown track team for teh "heavy" class every year just about, and he said it was a great track, so we went down there to give it a try.......also i think i exaggerated before because cecil was only like 3hrs 15 min from us...something like that......

    well i went today to etown for the FFW and it was pretty amazing....i thought the coolest thing was the true street competition where they have to take a 30 ile drive and then make three qualifying passes.....pretty neat ****....anyways i wanted to get pics, but my brothers camera was outta batteries which really ****ed me off, but my buddy had his vid cam, so we got a lot of car show and pits footage, and some goofy "street racing" footage after the event.....stay tuned..........btw who else went today?? i know i saw manozozz (sp) there today....he was the only one i recognized from stangnet..........

    His notch was bluish/green with prostars. I stayed for pro 50 and I left the track about 7. I didn't wanna leave late afternoon because I was trying to avoid sitting in traffic on the way home especially through staten island and brooklyn. Of course I did end up hitting traffic :D

    You missed an insane yellow sn95 style car. I think big daddy was driving it. It didn't come out of the hole that hard but like 1/2 track he must have went full throttle and that thing was moving! 176mph trap speed :eek:

    Alright, who will be at Carlisle and Maple Grove in June? I'll be at both, but I see no way that I'll have my car at either one. :(
