I had some time to work on this year's event preview video this month and took advantage of the opportunity!

In six short months the Eleventh Anniversary of the Joel Bender (http://forums.tccoa.com/showthread.php?t=81207) / Brian Klein (http://forums.tccoa.com/showthread.php?t=120349) Memorial Nationals Summer Blast will be upon us!

If you love these cars and can't wait for the Super Coupe Shootout in late September, or is it early October ... ?, this is THE event to hold you over!

This year's event will be held the weekend of July 26-28th in Martinsburgh, West Virginia with drag racing at the Mason Dixon dragway in Hagerstown, MD.

Update: Lodging, Itinary and payment information added below.

More details coming soon (http://forums.tccoa.com/showthread.php?t=141973)...

Watch it here or clicky over to YouTube and watch it in HD for best viewing.

BTW, that's Nickleman60's car doing the burnout at the end.

I hope to see many of you there... Enjoy!

Hotel Information

Room Rentals will be $72.00 at the group rate!!!! We have a block of rooms. Reservations must be made NLT than July 12th! Afterwards the remaining rooms go back to the hotel. Please state you are with the Thunderbird Car club and whether you want smoking or non-smoking.

Comfort Inn Martinsburg
1872 Edwin Miller Blvd.
Martinsburg, WV 25404
866-307-2224
304-263-6200 If there are problems call and Ask for the Manager (Linda)

Track Rental

Track rental payments need to be in as soon as possible. Final payments NLT by July 12th.

1). We need to get the funds in for all those that plan to participate on this as soon as possible so I can get this track venue held for us.

2) Once we have our down payment we need to insure we get the minimum full 30 cars in whatever means as possible. I would particulary like to fill it with mostly MN 12's/FN10's but all our Ford and Mercury companions are welcome. There may also be a couple brand X's there as well.


My plans are to have an hour or two of morning test and tune and have lanes set up for grudge match racing from 10AM till noon with continued test and tune runs for those just wanting to do that. I would also like to see if we could get a lady (Female) grudge match set up as well. I think some of us guys would like to see that.

Remember proper safety equipment will be required! I'll work with tech on this but don't expect to be running 11.40's without a bar. Most of the other cars in the group are good with helmets, possible DS loops, and the proper clothing. Remember also we won't be running in the dead heat of the day but it still may be warm in the morning and will likely get warmer as it progresses. Therefore E.T's likely will not be where you are normally used to seeing them in the fall of the year at other tracks. Regardless, we will still have fun! Hopefully we will have some newbies join in and try out their luck. Quickest personal E.T. of the day number will be the one chosen and placed on the Summer blast Drag list individually. If the event is rained out, (Called by Mason Dixon) our money will be returned, otherwise it will not!

Payments can be made to Karen via Pay Pal or snail mail by check/money order. She can post that information in this thread below. AS SOON as she has the minimum for the track deposit I'll have it sent to me and be taking care of that with the track. Payment is $75.00 and that includes car/driver and one spectator free.

Oh, is that Chris's car?

Sorry about that. I was confused because they're both black and both from Virginia.

Never say never. I know you've got some plans to catch up to him. I'm hoping to be a little closer to your old times myself this summer.

Should be fun seeing you guys get those back together with new mods this year. Looks good Keith.

As soon as Chris started the thread about a fuel cell installation I knew that my chance to catch him was probably going out the window........but we'll see. I don't have a clue as to what my car might run but as long as it's a 10.?? I'll be happy.

So I guess you're referring to the red '94 5-speed. My garage isn't heated so it's cold working on the car, for some reason I haven't moved a plug in heater from the house to the garage..........note to self - move heater to garage when working on car.......:rolleyes:

I need to get as much done as I can by Feb. 20th because I'm having shoulder surgery and I'll be out of commission for awhile as far as being able to work on the car.
