    2006 SC Shootout Location!!!

    Ok guys, the voting for the diehards has been completed and those who voted have been duly recognised. Now, for the rest of you!

    Are you interested in an SC Shootout? Would you attend? How far would you drive to PARTICIPATE? Participation doesn't mean just drag racing. Participation means are you willing to spend up to $100 to get into the track, maybe take a few passes down the strip, eat lunch and dinner with all the other SC enthusiasts, get a cool T-shirt, maybe win some raffle prizes, and just generally hang out with the coolest crowd on the net?

    If that describes you, vote below!

    IMPORTANT! The votes below are for interest sake only. If you are serious about attending and would put up the $$ to "participate" if the event were close enough for you, then pony up $25 and paypal it to shootout@alltel.net. The money will be your deposit towards your registration fee PROVIDED that the SC Shootout is close enough to you that you could make it.

    The cool thing here is that YOU decide how far you'd travel! That's right! Just include a note telling us how far you'd travel and if we can't meet your requirement you get your money back!

    Nothing to lose and a great opportunity to not only support but also participate with your SuperCoupe Community!!



    Any questions? Post away!

    Remember, vote here for fun, but if you'd seriously attend and participate, then send your money in - NO RISK if we can't make it work for you!

    2000+ miles - I'm certifiable and I'll prove it!

    What the heck a few hundred more miles won't hurt.

    I won't mind at all if it's in the Northeast. We can go visit all of our family in NY after the shootout and make a vacation out of it.

    650 miles isn't that bad...800 isn't unreasonable either. Hell, drove to Detroit and back in January, we were there back, and unloaded the motor in 24 hours on the nose.

    Come on guys, you in this or no?



    Seriously.

    Been crunching some numbers and sharpening some pencils and I've come up with an idea. Hear me out and then speak up if you think I'm on to something here.

    Lets consider an East - West Shootout.

    That's right people. I've taken my list of confirmed supporters (guys with the $$) and added those who've voted here, plus a few that are MIA but I feel pretty sure will attend, and here is what we have.

    Suppose just for a minute that KCIR in Kansas City was the location of the Western Shootout.

    We have the following people CONFIRMED to participate:

    John Shelton
    Mike Debracini
    Dave Sabados
    Jeremy Kovaks
    Todd Jelle
    Michelle Huffman
    Dave Rowe
    Doug Franklin
    Charles Brown
    Thomas Aden
    Charles Aden
    Andy McMurty
    Marc Petillo
    Duane Nettles
    Kurt Kreisz
    David Neibert
    Tony Serno
    Randy Baker
    Mike Sizemore
    Tracy Harm
    Mike Harms
    Sam Malone
    Matt Burgess
    James Smith........Total 24

    Unconfirmed voters:

    Rod Maksimovich
    Jerrod Imerbthama
    Scott Bruhn
    Birdofprey97
    Phranquy
    Jason Meinholdt......Total 30

    Others whom I think would attend a KS meet:

    Chris Zwemke
    Rodney Bushong
    Julian Miller
    Micah Miller
    Chris Walker
    Rich Bruhn
    Tim Keiss
    David Dalke
    Paul Meadows.......Total 39

    It's starting to sound possible......


    Now on to an Eastern Shootout at say Dragway 42 in Ohio or Pittsburg Raceway Park:

    Confirmed paying supporters:

    Jimmy White
    Mike Boylan
    David Dalke
    Shane Glynn
    Craig Guest
    Ed Nicholson
    Andrew Wang
    Ryan Harris
    Kevin Leitem
    Steve Nicholson
    Steve Webb
    Ken Seegers
    Dave Ward
    Ira Robinson
    Jim Oneill
    Mark Belush
    Tyler Smith
    Edward Andrews
    Mike Tuck
    Brian Oatway Total.......20

    Unconfirmed voters:

    Bill McNeil
    Damon Baumann
    Dan Sly
    Bruce Total.......24

    People whom I think would participate in an eastern venue:

    Mark Kovalcik
    Mike Irving
    Stan Wodzisz
    Ryan Ruvolo
    Bill Hein
    Chris Lazzo
    Anthony Rongo
    Joe Brauner
    Brandon Weichey
    Sean Matteson
    Doug Willliams
    Anthony Arnold
    David Neibert
    Kurt Kreisz
    Casey McCarty
    Tony Serno Total......40

    I'm sure I've missed some people but is this starting to sound feasible? Is there anyone who would add their name to the list if they knew that the SC Shootout would be held at one of these venue's?

    Let us know!

    And yes, I know this assumes that some of you (us) would attend both. Kurt, you just might get the chance to show how crazy you really are.

    I was already going to reply that I would almost rather travel to race in Pittsburg before I read your reply. Basically I need to travel to wherever Dan Sly is racing so I can get through to the finals

    I would definitely come to an eastern event. It just depends when the location is decided on though. If we know 6months or more prior to the event then that leaves good opportunities for planning.

    For me (not that it matters) I would see what rig I could use to tow the car down or if I would just drive it or not. I would feel silly towing an SC with a 32ft toterhome with a 30ft double stacker, in which, is all I own towing wise.

    Dave,

    Ill drive if its within a day, but i sure as heck would need a caravan of people. I drive 3 hours and i get bored and tired. If i had like a group of 4 or so SCs to drive to it with, ill go halfway across america. I just put 400 miles in the scenario i would have to drive alone. Expect my 25 bucks when my finances get in order.

    2006 Shootout

    David am I reading this correctly, you are planning to split everything up and have two Shootouts? As for me I would prefer to go wherever the most cars will be, and distance really doesn't matter to me. If I drive my car and I break it 800 miles from home in KC I am no better off than if I break it 1200 miles from home in Ohio. I say decide on one spot and lets have the Shootout, you are not going to make everyone happy and some won't attend even if it is in there own back yard

    Haven't planned anything yet, just discussing options. We need to nail our plan by the end of the month so we can make arrangements with the race track(s).

    The more people who vote, the better informed decision we can make.
