Well here is the deal. We have started to put together a weekend deal that will be held in Milwaukee, Wisconsin for all MN12's
This is NOT to interfear with the shoot out, rather give those who don't want or can't drive that far. I have been in contact with Dave D. and he is cool with this, as long as it is not close to the shoot out date...
He said he might even show up. We hope so as it would help to add more to this by having him do some dyno tunes for those who need it.
We will run off the same rules,if allowed, as the shoot out. This will keep the playing feild even and we can compair times from both events...
Now we will get with the track to get a date and then fill in all the blanks. This should give everyone plenty of time to get their plans made and partake in one or both events...
This summer is starting to look like one FUN FILLED S.C. time for all to enjoy.... Watch for more on this and other events being planned for everyone to enjoy.........Rich

Rich as you know I will be there. I will tell the chicago group on the 19th. Can we have this made a sticky so it doesnt get lost? I am sure we will have quite a turn out.

Sounds great to me Rich. I'll be there if the car is running at the time it's scheduled.

Post the date as soon as you know it.

I need to get my car dyno'ed before the event. If you know of a Dyno (within 60 mi. of the track), Maybe XR7Dave can get my car dialed in Before the race.

Are you talking about Great Lakes Drag-Away (Union City, WI.), Close to Racine? I've been past the sign on I-94 many times, but could never stop there. Hell, that's only 163 mi. from me. I'll be there if I have to PUSH my car all the way to Wisconson!!!!!!!

Hey Rich, you gonna bring one of your BB cars? :eek:

Tim, I'd like to join your Chicago group. I'm in SW Michigan, only 90 mi. from Chi. You can E-mail me privately (cougar@QTM.net), so this thread doesn't get sidetracked.

Nice! Maybe I'll be able to make it. If the 35th is not close to being done I can atleast drive my other SC to check out all the action.

68 cougar, it is at Great Lakes. We will have to get an exact date and then talk to Dave Dalke about comming up. Rich has a dyno setup pretty close to the track. You have an e-mail, it our group not my group. :D

Keep in mind that the Car Craft Summer Nationals will be at the MN State fairgrounds on July 15-17. So many of us will be tied up that weekend.

I will have to see what dates are open at the track. The dyno is open most of the time, and if I bring in a bunch of work I can just about pick the date.
The track is 20 miles from the hotel, the dyno is 2 miles away so everything is nice and close....
Lets see what days are open and go from there. I know that this has to be put together asap and that's what will be done..........Rich

April is a little risky weather wise near the Great Lakes. Our Milan Dragway meets get rained out a lot in April. We could get lucky but it does rain a lot.

I should be able to make it just need to know a date and it shouldn't be a problem.

550 miles is better than 1100+ to the shootout. Towing the SC getting 10-12 MPG at best makes the 1100 mile jaunt to OK a little rough on the wallet. And with my track record (2 broken axles in the last 4 runs) there's no way in hell I'm driving the car anywhere. :) He!!, I haven't even moved it in 4 months and can't even get into it :p (the door rods stripped inside so the handle dosn't do a thing). Just make it for some time after April. Then I can get my '06 inspection and skip the '05 one altogether (it expired in 7/04). Too many projects.. not enough time...

If you don't do it by April your going to start running into conflicts with other events (like WFC) and holidays.
