Hopefully Travis s already working on #4 for next year. HPS will do all we can do to help promote this event for next year and hopefully get a larger turnout and get this event to grow.

What????? That's not real racing :gtfo:

Next thing you'll want SRA rears and '67 GTOs to participate :wall:

I think when the economy gets better it will grown naturally.
The track seems to be prepped well and several people are putting down PBs,
so it should get better by itself.

How about the quick 8 be an 1/8th mile deal to tighten the competition.. No reason to have 2-3 cars be able to cover the field by .7 - 1.0

That's not a bad idea, actually. I wouldn't be able to watch you leave if we do 1/8th mile. :stickpoke Seriously though, that would be something to consider. I know everyone wants to run 1/4 and likes to see the high MPH 1/4 miles passes but 1/8th mile would definitely equalize the field E.T. wise.

I just see the difference between 5.8x and 6.2x being more of a drivers race then would 9.0 and 10.0. And 95% of the people stand either behind the line or in the first 330ft. of the track anyway.. I have seen may a race where the faster car is behind at the 1/8th but ends up winning in a 1/4 mile race.
I.E. magnum GTO vs. plumcrazy1 at your event a few weeks ago.

I see what you are saying and unbelievably agree with you again. :gr_jest: That's twice this year and I believe a new record. I will consider your request only if you show up next year. :thumbs: Just bustin your chops. I know you had more serious business to deal with this year.

I am already getting excited for ECS IV!!! Hopefully this next go-around I won't have to drive almost 900mi to race... should be more like 320mi which would be AMAZING! I still can't get over how well the event was put together and being able to hear the dragger squealing all the way down the track (track prep was outstanding)!
