Default Wichita Falls 1/8th mile drag strip

I hear there is something going on today at the Texoma Raceway (I think the name is, it was Red River Raceway) which supposedly started at 3pm or so.

I hear they do this every Thursday and Saturday. Anyone going?

Hey, just cause it's wet doesn't mean EVERYONE will have grip problems right???

I've never been up there... I have a thing against the strip. I've thought about going up there on test and tune thursdays but never got around to it.

I don't even know where it is. I hear it's about 15-20 mins. away. I personally run SCCA Autocross and that is all i've done with my ride, once.

It is inconvenient to go way out to Dallas to the TMS races. I went once and it was worth it, I had a great time. I was on the stock tires and placed in the middle of other WRX's that were not stock at all, I mean, they were in another class. I was impressed with the car.

anyway check out the SCCA website for our area:

http://autocross.com/texasregion/

i'm sure you know how to get there, to tms

just curious, what is it with the straight-line tracks that you don't like?

From what I heard, they repaved it and added new/more bleachers.

Oh, I'm quite familiar with texas regiong SCCA and Equipe Rapide. I won the SWDiv STS trophy back in 2000 . I don't get down there much anymore, wife, son, etc. I run SM now and don't have r-compounds in the budget so I get smoked... fun though.

As for the dragstrip, just not my bag. I wouldn't mind a trip to a true 1/4 mi to see what I'd do but the 1/8 just seems like added abuse for little return. The stip is supposed to be nice, I know several people who go but its just never been my thing.

I see.

Your ride looks sharp. Atleast now I know what to keep an eye out for on the road.

I have never run on any tires other than "ultra high performance all season". Maybe that's why I never came in higher than the middle of my bracket. I ran STS in my S14. In the WRX, I ran stock. Oh yeah, did I mention the only other person in my bracket had a Sentra Spec-V w/ suspension and slicks. Sounds fair huh?



guess that's my fault for thinking stock meant stock. i'll read the rules next time around.
