Half price season passes to 'Da Grove

FYI Great Lakes Dragaway is selling their season passes for both racing and spectating for 1/2 price until March 15. The spectator passes are accepted at all events and the race passes are for fun racing. If you go to the strip to watch often or you Test & Tune or like to run for fun on the weeknights and go there to run more than 10 times it will pay for itself...any more than that you'll save a wad of cash. They accept PayPal at their website.
I'm on their email list so I figured I'd just pass the word because you can save some coin.
Maybe see you up there.

"Dirt is for racing on...Asphalt is for getting there" OR "Flat trackers go in deeper and come out harder... OR (With apologies to General MaCarthur) "Old motorcycle racers never die, they just slip off the groove and fade into the dust!

If you want to anger a conservative, tell him a lie. To anger a liberal all one must do is tell the truth!

what great timing, I picked up a 65 chevy II a few weeks ago and will be heading up there to do some tuning and testing (and running) as soon as the weather permits. Thanks for the heads up !!! I'll check out their site.

Oooooooo, my dream car. I had a red one with a 327 and a 4 speed way back in 1970. Sold it when I went in the army. I need to find one like it again and re-live my youth.

I've always loved the Chevy II's and after years of toying with the idea, I pulled the trigger. 327 ci, hump heads, 350 turbo, 373 rear end. Here's to re-living our youth !!!

When the strip opens and weeknight racing begins Tuesdays are street tires only for T&T and a fun race (bikes can run any tires). Wednesdays are ladies night where the ladies race for free and the track is open for everyone to T&T (guys pay) and Thursdays are Slicks & bikes nights for full on race cars and motorcycles. I believe on Thursday nights there are points paid and champs are crowned at the end of the year AND they also have NHRA races on the weekends that you can qualify for the Nationals in Indy as part of a track team. Check their site for more details
I recently acquired a GS1100 Suzuki to re-live my mis-spent youth on! I'll be up there often for T&T and some fun racing and I plan to hit other nearby tracks from time to time as well...Byron, maybe Route 66 and Cordova. I have a pretty full plate with the AMA and needing to go to AMA events so the dragstrip will be my diversion.
