March 14th 2009 Zmax Dragway
They have gotten back to me with the only date available for complete track rental:
Saturday March 14, 2009 (rain date Sunday March 15, 2009)
They are NOT inexpensive, BUT, we will have one hell of a time in Charlotte.
Gen III Hemi Invitational!
Looking at Jeep SRT8's LX Hemi's, Challenger Hemi's....maybe 50-75 cars or so.
Different categories from stocker to 426 to all out anything goes, forget streetable!
I'll need $150 per vehicle.
This should be a blast!
I've contacted a couple of the guys on the LX site who put together GREAT events like the Shindig and the annual LX and Beyond race to help me out with the logistics.
A friggen ton of work, but, I'll even stay up by the speedway with you guys and tip a few.
