Atco: Black Friday (11/23) Test & Tune

Should be near unlimited runs (if you want 'em). Always a fun and easy day.

Gates open at 9am (shit, you can go buy that TV beforehand at 5am and head over to the track!).

Was thinking of going today with the cool temps and the barometer over 1036mb/30.60". But damn that football, it's like crack.


12 hours of racing on Black Friday. Sounds good. lol

Well, not exactly if it's anything like it was last year.
I got there for the 2nd half (night session) of it and it was PACKED. All of the lanes were in use and they were all out to almost the gas pumps/speed shop.
Once the day people cleared out it was a little better but it was still a wasted visit for me (although I do spend my Thanksgivings only 10 miles away every year so I was already down there).

Option would be street wars on Sunday at Etown - if Atco is that busy.

I believe that one year it was somewhat empty (and there were two years that it didn't even happen at all due to weather) but last year was VERY busy.
But like Bob said it is still a decent deal because you get to (at least attempt to) run all day for little more than the cost of regular test & tune day.
The only problem with being there with SO MANY other cars is more chance for each car to oil down the track causing long delays adding to the slow pace that you're already dealing with due to the car count in the first place.
Might go to E-town on Sunday, but I'll be sitting this Black Friday thing out.

Just have to pray to the oil down gods - may be sacrificing a virgin will help - anyone know where we can find on?

Finding a virgin is like finding a 100% stock GTO......both are very rare.



I hope weather and track prep is perfect....new PBs for everyone

Parking back by the top end tower okay with everyone? It will keep us a way from the riff raff.

To be 10th in line we would have to leave at roughly 6:00am-6:15am, but I don't see you doing that LOL.

We will be there bright and early, I assume. Hopefully changing the date on this will keep it a bit more calm then it tends to be.

Bob -- I may be bringing my winter tires to change onto the car after the track. Is it OK to store them in your trailer when you get there?

I don't know about Sunday. It's so hard to not watch the games! I'd be on my phone all day. haha


Oh, and according to some posts on Atco's Facebook page, people who arrived in the morning got 3 passes all day. People who arrived later got 1 or 2 passes. It was absolutely jammed there.

I don't think that will be a problem at all.

My friend Mike with a supercharged GMC pick up said he'd gotten only one pass in all day. He did arrive a little late though.

Wow that would really piss me off only getting 1 or 2 passes all day.

The only issue tomorrow seems to be a predicted crosswind of up to 15mph gusts. Other than that DA if the baro stays in the mid 29.7-8 range should be between -700 & -1,300. Nice air!

ee you guys tomorrow.

Steve
