    There are some of us in Texas that could go if it´s a big turn out with enough notice ahead of time. Texas is just so dam big. It takes for ever to get out of.

    keep discussing it. donnie and I have talked about it but haven´t had much time to do anything big. MAYBE later in summer. I´m trying to save for a house right now so money isn´t in great supply. however lets keep talking about it and see what we can come up with. I think the location should have an autocross and drag strip within the weekend. other than that I´m not too worried about where it is.

    Hey egtdude, funny you should mention the autocross and drag strip. We have the perfect place for that right here in AZ. Firebird raceway has a dragstrip, and races every Friday night,and they have Club nights on Saturdays. Plus right next to it (Actually attatched to it I should say) is the Bonderaunt Racing School. I´m not sure, but I think you might be able to rent the track for practice and stuff. And if anyone is interested in some ralley style racing there is plenty of open desert to go romping around in.

    Hey,...Firebird would be perfect. For the Californian´s I can make it to Phx in almost 5 hours from LA county. For me here in Prescott its only an hour and 15.
    <BR>
    <BR>Friday night drags are packed though...Thursday night is Import night. I was able to run to my hearts content last time. It would be a better choice.
    <BR>
    <BR>My goal is to actually be running (with the turbo) in late August. Why dont we make a map with where eveyone´s at. From there we can find common routes and carpooling. I know buckleboy is up in Flag, so if he drives to ´Preskit´ from here we could go to mesa, then to firebird...or something like that. Likewise if people want to come from Vegas they can sleep a night at my place before going down to Phx.
    <BR>
    <BR>anyhow, let make something work for end of the summer.

    They are having a Saturday night drags on August 24th. I also read on their website that they have skid pads that can be rented for autocross events, or things of the sort. go to <!-- BBCode auto-link start --><a href="http://www.firebirdraceway.com" target="_blank">www.firebirdraceway.com</a><!-- BBCode auto-link end --> and they hav all the info there
