Just reading over some of the posts in this thread and I just wanted to comment. If your planning on going why not just come with the idea of racing your car? No one expects you to make 8 sec. passes or to set the Byron track record in your class. This is an excellent opportunity to experience the thrill of drag racing while driving your own car safely down an NHRA sanctioned drag strip.

You don't need any experience and the track officials will help you to get your car in the beams when you line up to race. They are there to help you and every week there are plenty of racers there that are doing it for the first time.

We should be able to go, but only to spectate. I can not race due to my hand and Tammy is to chicken shit to try it.

C'mon Kent. Come on down. This sounds like the perfect opportunity to get out and see if I can hit some low 13s with the new tune and some cool weather. Count me in.

How much to spectate only. Havent really had much overtime at work, and with saving for Mexico I might not have the money to race.

I dont drink Margarita's!!! I'm just factoring everything in, gas and lunch included. probably $100 day if I race. If I drive the wifeys car and spectate, gas is cut in half. Not having that 8-10hrs overtime per week the last couple of weeks makes big difference when saving for vacation and having money to play with.

I put on over 100 miles on my truck getting there and back almost every Sun. and I'm pulling a trailer. I know it's expensive, but it's what I do. Race days cost me another $100 just in entry fees. Next year it might be more, but I love racing and it's my thing. I can understand why some of you guys can't make it. Money is still tight for alot of people. Wives and kids are expensive. Been there done that.

I already have $70 tied up in entry fee and giggle gas. Last time I came out to Chi it only cost me around $40 in 93 octane.

More Info: Attention CAMM racers...when you get to the strip on Sunday, be sure to tell the person you give your money to that you're with CAMM. We will be getting special numbers on our cars so they can keep track of how many racers we have and can better determine how many staging lanes we need. Spectator fee is $10.00.


That being said whoever wants to come please do and those that don't please do not feel pressure to come out. I know everyone has a lot going on and it is a good bit of money to get out there and stay all day. I just really wanted to do something fun as a last gathering before the cold weather sets in (and celebrate my birthday too I guess). There will be more gatherings and more track days, both drag and twisty, so its all good.

Btw I snuck onto Chicago Garage and they seem really eager to "eat some Mopars." So yeah Twisted Evil

Thanks Crystal for the info on the spectator fee.

As of right now me and the gf will be making the trip, unless something major happens at work and I have to go in.
