I will be at the track on Saturday (4/18) from 9am on if anyone wants to come out and help with some clean up work. If you want to help with track scraping wear old shoes and bring some gloves to wear. If you have some trimming shears to trim back some of the overgrowth around the entrance and return roads that would help also, I'll bring what I have also. Other than that the place made it thru the winter pretty good so if you can spare a few hours stop by. Thanks.

On Sunday March 1st we held our driver’s meeting at Borio’s and here are a few of the topics we discussed. On the schedule the Showdown races that we run every year will have an additional $10 entry fee for the class that is competing in the Showdown that day. Payouts for the Showdowns will be: Super Pro $1500 to win, Pro $1000 to win, Pro MX $750 to win, Street Money $500 to win and the Jr. Dragster Challenge will pay $300 to win. The Super Pro entry fee will rise by $15 to $60 to race but we will guarantee $1000 to win on a weekly basis with a decent car count. Payouts in S/P, Pro and Pro MX will now start with a third round win instead of a second round win. The Street Money time break will be lowered to 10.50 (was 11.50) so now Street Money times will be 10.50 to 19.99. We will now offer buybacks in all of the classes for this season.
If and when there is a D.R.A.G. meeting I can discuss any of this for those who could not make the drivers meeting. Hope to see everyone soon.

We'll look the car over when you come out. If it runs in the 9's it will have to get certified at some point, we can do a 90 day temproary cert at the track which will buy you a little bit of time. If you want to use the trans. brake you will have to run Super Pro for a money class or Modified which is a trophy class. See you soon.

Need a bit more info to give you some advice. A few differences are that we do not allow trans brakes in our "Pro" class which is a non electronics class. NHRA requires chassis cert. and license with medical physical at 9.99 or faster than 135 mph. These are two of the most common things asked. Most of the basic safety requirements are very similar.

Here's a few things that we would look at tech wise to get you thru the first day of racing. Battery hold down, overflow catch can for the cooling system, seat mounted properly, seat belts, a Snell 2005 or newer helmet for 13.99 and quicker, driveshaft loop if you plan on running slicks (13.99 or quicker), you mentioned nitrous so make sure that the bottle is mounted properly and if it's mounted in the driver's compartment you need to have a vent on the blow off valve going outside the body. Single layer fire jacket will also be required if you use the nitrous. We'll be at the Motorama at the end of the month if you stop by or you can always contact me. Thanks for your interest and we'll see you soon.

I do not have a map of the spots but I do have a list of who had spots and their pit spot numbers. We only sold approx. 20 spots last year so there are plenty available. Mike there are many spots on the tower side of the track along the property line. I'll bring my number list to the drivers meeting and I'll work on making a map once the snow leaves.

Jon was one of the few ESTA Stockholder's that always made our annual meetings and would stop by the car show booth and a few times a year at the track. He also is the last one to help repair the tower a few years ago and did not charge us anything to do the work. I'll miss talking with him, he was a great guy. Rest in peace Jon.

Mike, thanks again for promoting this race it should be a great time. I'll throw in $200 from my shop to help out as well. Also make sure that I get some flyers in time for the car show we display in (Mid March I think) or get me the info with all the sponsors and I'll get some made up for the show.
