Just got back from Cecil County Dragway $10 to get in. All the car's, truck's and bikes you can shake a stick at. Not to mention girls :winker: .So for about $22 total i was entertained for 4.5 hours Alot cheaper than Al Diamonds Cabaret. But i Think the kill switch and clutch for the bike is gonna cost me a little change, I have the itch to run again. :p:

I love the drags but unless I am running I wont go,
just not the kind to sit and watch.
On trips more than once I have taken my rental to a dragstrip
and run it . Made the semis (brackets) last year at SSHS7 in a rented PT Cruiser,LOL..
Sadly I cant afford two hobbies any longer and the boat won out.
One day Ill get another strip terror.
:D

Sounds like a bargain compared to the NitroJam taking place here this weekend. I am sure it is an event to see, but $35 +$15 for the kid...it's still a dragstrip. Travel, food, drinks, and souvenirs, I am sure I would have been $300 lghter when I got home. Some high level PRO racers that I'd love to see, but...
I am sure my 9 year would enjoy something more like street cars his first time at the drags. Plus we have FREE passes to roadcourse and MX track all season 6-7 miles from the house. He gets a kick out of the kids his age running MX then comes home and does his version in the yard.

Did you see that brand new challenger with the temp tags on it run last night? It must be a tank to only run a 14.12 at 102mph.I expected at least mid 13s.

Is that all it ran? I saw it in line, I left before it ran . The silver one with the older gent driving it. Right. I've seen some SRT8 300's run better than that. Looked sweet though. Were you running or just checking stuff out also ?

Yes the kids are a little tough. we took my nephew to the Buck and watched a diesel pick up truck shoot out and he was cool for the first couple of hours then started getting a little antsy.I'm about due for another trip back up thier also, so we will have to see if he wants to try it again .

I was a spectator.Checked out the specs on the new challenger.They are 4100 lbs! Car reports say they are capable of a 13.2 at 107mph and only come with 5spd auto's.It looked like he got out of the hole good without any wheel spin but thats alot of azz to get moving down the track!

107mph is good for mid 12s with the right convertor and tires
