Tired of taking the time to head out to the track, and only getting in 3 or 4 passes because of crowds? Well we have the solution:

MFBA Presents...

MAYHEM IN MOROCCO VII

Saturday, October 7
9:00 AM - 4:00 PM
US41 Dragway - Morocco, IN

OUR ANNUAL DRAG RACING CLASSIC!


Gates open at 8:00am

Car + Driver: Non-Members: $40 / Paid MFBA Members: FREE!
Spectators: Non-Members $5 / Members: FREE!

The day's schedule:
Test & Tune 9:00am - 12:30pm
Sign up for the shootout starting at 11:00am
1st round of the Shootout at 1:00pm

Shootout categories will be determined later, but typically consist of TopGun, Power adder, allmotor, street tire, and bracket racing. We'll also be running clocks off for those that request it. There will be ample time to keep running throughout the day for T&T as well. We typically have 50-100 cars out at the track, so you shouldn't have to worry about long staging lanes. Plus, most people typically get their best run of the year at the end of the season during the cool weather.

There will likely be a caravan leaving that morning for those that aren't familiar with getting to the track. It's about a 90 minute drive from the burbs.

Hope a few of you can make it out! :)

I don't have any times on the GTO with the headers, so I'll probably bring it. :)

Best with the GTO stock was 13.9 @ 101 mph while wheel hopping in 1st, and pedaling it in 2nd (cold track). Figure it should be good for low to mid 13's @ 105ish as is now.

Dan,

I heard that you guys invited the CMC guys, is that still valid? How much would it cost a non-MFBA member?

Hey Larry,

We tried to setup a friendly challenge for CMC (ChicagolandMustangClub) vs MFBA back in April or May at Cordova, but it got rained out. So we invited them to come out again in October for anyone who is interested. Mutual respect is a good thing. :) Plus, who wouldn't want to watch a bunch of Mustangs and Camaros and TransAms and GTO's going at it all day long? :cool:

Agreed!

The CMC Club isn't really a group of hard-core drag racers, since only a core group of us regularly drag-race. There were a group of us talking about coming down, but I doubt they'll be enough of us to run any sort of "challenge".

Not to change the subject (and I'm not sure who here organizes Chicago Area Events), but a few of us have kicked around the idea of a local GTO/Cobra Challenge at Byron (along the lines of the CMC/SRT Event they hold for us). 04-06 GTOs vs. 03-04 Cobras. I imagine Byron would be happy to reserve a few lanes for us. If the idea is of interest to anybody, we could pursue it further with the proper member(s) here.

MFBA only has a small group of dedicated 1/4 milers also, but we routinely get a good group out for our track rentals. "Challenge" is used loosely, being that it's an informal gathering of cars that make for good competition. :)

I might have to do this. I would like to fine tune my strip technique at a private session rather than learning at a public madhouse

No additional fee planned for the shootout at this point. However, if the participants wanted to all throw in $5 towards the winner, we could arrange that...

Yeah, I'm probably not going down until a bit later in the morning. Although the early guys will be rewarded with better times by getting there when the gates open at 8:00, letting their cars cool down for an hour, and starting racing at 9:00 in the cooler morning air...
