Oh man, ever gone on a friday night before? You'll be lucky to get 3 passes if you're waiting in the lanes all night.

I would go to test and tune a lot on Fridays w/ my old car and I would average about 4-5 runs. Most of the full race drag cars and bike groups get to cut in front of everybody so that's why you don't get that many runs in. If I had a decent car, I would go up there with you guys.

You are nuts my friend.

I have absolutely no luck at all going on fridays. I might be able to get a few passes before it gets packed, but after that the lanes are wrapped all the way around.

Mopar, dude you missed it at MAM with NESBA. The track complex has a drag strip and they were running friday/ saturday night grudge nights and stuff. And if anyone was feeling up to it, there was a strip club one exit up the highway from there too. I hope NESBA goes back because it has major fun potential.

I was there about a month ago on my racebike on a Friday night. There was only like 10 bikes there, and I got about 8-9 passes. I think I got there between 7:30 and 8. The majority of your runs are going to come in the last half hour when everone else is leaving. Just stay till the end and you'll get your fair share of passes.
