So after much thought I think for sure I'm going to do the 1 on 1 drags at sycamore speed way on sept 26th. I have wanted to do it for so long and I went last month but backed out and another guy in a GTP won. I was so proud, even though it was a dealer car. Does anyone even go up there anymore?? Well if anyone wants to make the trip me aswell as members from a bunch of different clubs are going feel free to come up. Im going to sign up as TCG XTANT12. I hope I make you guys proud!

Dirt track oval. They have a thing where people from the stands can sign a waiver and race 1 on 1. The smell of popcorn and burning oil fills the air.

They usually drive pretty carefully to avoid that, but that's what the waiver is for.

It was fucking awesome!! Nothing like a bunch of rednecks driving in cars they don't give a fuck about. They'll send each other into the wall, there was a car stalled facing the wrong direction and cars were trying to push people into it.

But the best part was the 1 on 1 spectator drags. A cavalier and a Saturn lined up. The Saturn was on the inside lane. On the final turn, the saturn hit an edge, over corrected, and was going straight up the track. Then, the cavalier T-boned the saturn and the door fell off. Mind you, these are peoples actual cars, not race ready cars. Dude got on the loud speaker and had to ask someone for a ride home.

Last Friday was the last night for those types of races... i thought? Saturday nights they have the full on race cars, I'm not sure if they do the 1 on 1 drags

Hey guys, I wanted to post up that I will not be doing the race at sycamore. I actually got a lot of PM’S asking why I would risk all the work I have done to my car. I have to say you guys are right and it was foolish of me to take that chance. Thanks for the tough love guys.
